The National Museum Restoration and Storage Center is a central building that hosts the preservation and scientific processing of more than three hundred and fifty thousand works of art of the Museum of Ethnography, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Hungarian National Gallery, and efficiently addresses the storage problems in the long term.
The central element of the warehouse site built on the Vágány Street side of the plot is a modern building, whose dyed in the mass raw concrete façade is in harmony with the old hospital buildings, while it is clearly a modern creation.
This building of 42,000 m2 also contains restorer workshops, laboratories and research rooms, and a visitors’ center of 1,000 m2 is also under construction. The latter was placed in the reconstructed building of the Israelite prayer house of the former hospital, later converted into an admission building, where, among other things, a conference room and an exhibition hall were established. A 13,000-square-meter park has also been established around the building complex, with free entry for visitors during the opening hours of the building.
