The 150-year-old Museum of Ethnography (Néprajzi Múzeum) is a national institution mainly dedicated to the traditional culture of Hungarians. The collection originally belonged to the National Museum, but over the years it grew into an independent body thanks to the enthusiasm of ethnographers. The museum has relocated several times over the years, but in 2022 it finally found its permanent location in City Park. The building was designed especially for the museum by Ferencz Marcel. The exterior sports a metal façade and a huge roof garden with a panoramic view. Inside, a huge exhibition space displays only part of a substantial collection of 250,000 ethnographic items, including artefacts from Africa and the Far East.
