Exhibitions open to the public during the renewal of the Museum of Transport

The Museum of Transport is currently being renewed

Although the Museum cannot be visited at the moment, it compensates its audience with plenty of exciting programs and exhibitions.  During the current but transitional period, collections are available for those who are interested in transport. While the main building is closed, our member institutions and several other exhibition places are open without interruption with up-to-date temporary and permanent exhibitions, this way filling in the transitory period until the new main museum building is opened. We are committed to bridge the transitional period as smoothly as possible, so the technical member institutions exhibit not only the significant events of the history of technology, but also the essential peeks of transport history. The Ábrahám Ganz Foundry Collection in Víziváros, in Budapest, the Technical Study Stores with its special exhibition spaces and the Museum of Electrical Engineering in the heart of the city are ready to greet the visitors interested in technology and transport. In the countryside, the Museum of Chemistry in Várpalota, the Museum of Aluminum Industry in Székesfehérvár and the Metallurgical Collection in Miskolc are ready to meet the demands of the visitors until the Museum of Transport is reconstructed.

Beside our member institutions we are also present in other exhibition places as well: the Parád Carriage Museum (one of the most significant exhibitions presenting carriages), the Millennium Underground Museum at Deák Square (which is hosted by the emptied tunnel passage of the millennium underground), the Nagycenk Railway Open-Air Museum, or the Kossuth Museum Ship are only a couple of alternatives which are open to visitors throughout the year with permanent and temporary exhibitions and exciting programmes. Aeropark is an outstanding exhibition place which re-opened its gates in June 2017. with new pieces at a new location – the major part of the collection exhibited here belongs to the Hungarian Museum of Transport. Another significant exhibition space is the Hungarian Railway Museum which is one of the biggest interactive railway-themed memorial park in Central-Europe. Railway-related objects, locomotives, and day coaches in a substantial part belong the Transport Museum as well.
