My family and I attended a dance performance at the Palace of Arts. It is comprised of several theatres, is modern and up to date. Because there are several theatres, it can be confusing to navigate to the appropriate one, especially if there are issues with stairs. However, the staff is helpful and can oint you in the right direction.... More

We were there for a concert. Very impressive building, the acoustics are incredible. It also has a nice cafe which serves specialty coffees and pastries.

This is truly a Palace of Arts - many different art forms coexist in this gorgeous work of modern architecture. We usually go there for concerts (the acoustics of the concert hall are exceptional) but the Ludwig Museum, the theatre, the restaurants, cafés and the bookshops are worth a visit too!

The external architecture of this building is lovely. I would certainly recommend it to visit if you are interested in Art. Like most places it is very easy to find.

Historical interest and a great view of Budapeast. ............... Nice walk over the bridge to get to it and a quirky little train taken.

I have purchased a couple of tickets to the National Philharmonic performance at Palace of Arts, using the internet site (mupa.hu) just before our trip to Budapest. The place is very impressive, interesting architecture and beutiful interior. The Bella Bartok National Concert Hall is one of the best - the sits are comfortable, the view and sound is great. Nevertheless... More

Visited for the Night Circus and it was FANTASTIC. The venue is lovely, tickets are cheap, and it's easily accessible by public transport.

Just returned from a tour at MUPA with our dance company. Astounding architechture and excellent personnell at this center. If you want to enjoy a concert or show in Budapest, then MUPA is your venue of choice.

Both classical or modern, it houses the Ludwig Museum (modern arts) too). The National Concert Hall and the Festival Theater offer vibrant programs, such as Recirquel, a contemporary new style circus, almost like a ballet performance. Take care, the food is not at the top. The restaurant Muvezs is trying to offer something better but without success.
