This museum is devoted to Hungarian painting and sculpture from the Middle Ages to the 20C. The collections are spread over four levels. The former throne room has a fine late-Gothic collection of altarpieces, including 15C and early-16C triptychs and polyptychs. The 19C painters Mihály Munkácsy and László Paál are also featured. The museum also displays some monumental works based on historical themes such as the Baptism of Vajk by Gyula Benczúr and Miklós Zrínyi at the Battle of Szigetvár by Péter Krafft.
