It was founded in 1802, when Count Ferenc Szechenyi asked Franz I., then emperor, to grant his huge Hungary related collection to the nation. Then it was decided that a new building should be elevated to be a National Museum. The construction lasted from 1837 until 1847. The building is covering almost 8000m2 and stands in the middle of a nice courtyard. The facade you “usually see” from the building is a Roman stlye portico with 8 columns. In the middle of the tympanum above the columns you can see Pannonia. Inside the staircases show the frescos of Karoly Lotz and Mor Than. The Museum, besides conserving history, also made history in the past: it was a gathering place for the starting event of the revolution in 1848-49, on the 15th of March in 1848 Sandor Petofi, famous Hungarian poet recited here the “National Song”. That is why every year on this date the center of the festivities is the garden of the Museum.
