Budapest’s renovated Museum of Fine Arts will reopen on Wednesday with an exhibition focusing on the art of Leonardo da Vinci.
Museum director László Baán said the three-year project involved the reconstruction of 15,000 square meters, 40 percent of the museum’s total area.
According to MTI, the works include the renewal of the Romanesque Hall, which was damaged in WWII and has been closed for visitors ever since.
Baán added that the roof of the building was replaced, new heating and air conditioning systems were installed, new exhibition halls, a restaurant, wardrobe and storage rooms were also added.
From tomorrow onwards, visitors will have access to the museum’s Egyptian and Greco-Roman exhibitions, as well as the galleries of antique statues and pictures, while all permanent exhibitions will open in mid 2019.
