Tel: 36 1 469 7100's insider take:

This large museum, located right where Andrássy hits City Park (Városliget), picks up where the Hungarian National Gallery leaves off. It houses collections of pan-European (rather than mostly domestic) fine art, as well as an Egyptian wing and rooms dedicated to ancient Greek and Roman works. In addition to the outstanding permanent collection, top-shelf visiting exhibitions of world greats like Titian make the Museum of Fine Arts a must for culture vultures. Even sweeter, volunteer docents offer free English-language guided tours of collection highlights Tuesday through Saturday at 11 a.m. Don't leave without seeing the stunning Gerard Dou and The Dream of St. Joseph by Rembrandt.

Closed Mondays.
