Museum Festival In Budapest, This Weekend
With the aim of creating a tradition, the Hungarian National Museum called into being 'Museums Majális' in 1996 to unite the world of Hungarian museums. Organically connected to International Museum Day (18th May), which has been organised annually for almost three decades by ICOM (International Council of Museums), this upcoming May weekend of 16 - 17 May is intended to draw attention to the world of museums. Organisers report to us the festival gets more and more visitors year after year.

Press release: Museums' Main Street, besides making room for museum and local historical collections, will provide opportunity for some prominent representatives of domestic cultural heritage and tourism to make themselves known. Unusual ingenuity and more colourful outlook coupled with their uniquely furnished tents will allure guests to "real" exhibitions, to getting acquainted with their works and home.

Crafts' Street is providing another popular scene of the commotion of the festival where folk artists and craftsmen whilst selling their goods will introduce the inquirers into the tricks of the trade.

Most Programs are going to take place on the Grand Stage situated in the centre. The weekend will offer colourful performances of such a high quality that will render the whole program alluring to every age-group and to Hungarian and foreign visitors alike, as well as ensure amusement and recreation all day long.

Children's stage will make the participants of museum pilgrimage stop for a while on both days. It is going to offer a bit of a restful entertainment for the whole family; children may enjoy themselves listening to tales evoking bygone ages and taking part in musical games, whilst adults may take pleasure in concerts recalling various historic ages.

The Hungarian National Museum's Public Relations Department is entrusted with organising, arranging for and carrying out the two-day long program. In doing so, it relies on the expertise and ten years of experience of its PR staff, who perform their duty in close co-operation with the museum's Finance and other Departments concerned as well as the museums to be present.

Venue: Hungarian National Museum and its neighbourhood, Múzeum körút 14-16. district VIII., trams 47, 49, M3 (blue) metro Kálvin tér station
