Guided tours in the Library with presentation of museum pieces

On the Nigth of Museums our guided tours focus on the history of the University Library and Archives, Eötvös Loránd University. The library palace was designed by Antal Szkalnitzky. Up-to-date technology of the time was used for ventilation, heating and illumination.

The tour will take you through the entrance hall decorated with sgraffiti to the reading room with figures on its ceiling which symbolise sciences and arts. Besides the magnificent art and architecture of the Reading Hall of the University Library and Archives, you can also see an oil-painting of the middle-aged Franz Joseph I. by Mór Than. Our librarians will tell you the secrets, and show you the hidden nooks and crannies of the library.

Join our library tour! More details about our programmes are available here and on the Night of Museums’ homepage.
