The Museum of Applied Arts (Hungarian: Iparművészeti Múzeum) is a museum in Budapest, Hungary. It is the third-oldest applied arts museum in the world.[1]


The museum was built between 1893 and 1896 and was designed by Ödön Lechner in the Hungarian Secession style. It has a green roof and the interior is designed using Hindu, Mogul, and Islamic designs.[1] The building is in need of renovation, for which plans have been developed. It’s under renovation now.


The museum houses a collection of metalwork, furniture, textiles, and glass. It also has a library. There are two other locations: the Hopp Ferenc Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts and Nagytétény Palace.

The museum is located near the southern end of the Grand Boulevard in the neighborhood Ferencváros and it can be accessed by metro line 3.
