The House of Music Hungary has a tripartite structure in regard to both its architectural and institutional organisation. On the underground level places have been allocated to permanent and temporary exhibitions on an area of more than 2,000 square metres. The two interior spaces on the level of the park are suitable for hosting live music events, concerts and workshops. In the open-air garden area people can have a pleasant conversation while enjoying concerts and performances on an open-air stage. The upstairs level houses the library providing a venue for quiet study, learning and education with works primarily on popular music, as well as music education rooms with workshops bringing young people closer to music.


Just as in past years, the House of Music Hungary will once again take part in the Night of the Museums event on 22 July, with the chance to visit the House’s permanent exhibition – Dimensions of Sound - Musical Journey Through Space and Time – and the Creative Sound Space and Sound Dome screenings in the evening. In addition, a valid Night of the Museums wristband also admits entry to watch and enjoy our concerts, DJ sets and surprise pop-up events. The now open – and now extremely popular new temporary exhibit – the Divas & Icons exhibition can be visited with a 20% discount with a Night of the Museums wristband. 


In addition to its superb exhibitions, the House of Music will also feature some truly special live performers throughout the Night of the Museums event, which begins at 6 pm. In addition to musical flashmobs that will appear on several occasions, you can attend Cello XXL at 6 pm in the Concert Hall, a super-sized cello concert with 11 cellists playing the strings on the stage – to put it another way, the programme will begin with a virtually unmissable show. From 7 pm in the Auditorium, you can enjoy the music odyssey From Baroque to Bossa Nova, which will feature a concert and educational discussions. The show will journey across continents, centuries and styles and also present an unusual instrument pairing – the oboe and guitar – with a concert that will be a true delight for all music aficionados. Night of the Museums wristband holders can also stop by the DJ Palotai Tribute Event at the Open-Air Stage for the legendary Hungarian DJ Zsolt Palotai, who recently passed away. The DJ set series will pay homage to DJ Palotai as DJ Ren, DJ Mango and DJ Titusz take turns at the turntables.
