Kiscelli Museum presents the 18th–21st century history of one of Central Europe’s most intriguing cities, Budapest, and of its inhabitants. Kiscelli Architectural Archives are focusing on collecting post-war architectural plans, photos and models, because the Hungarian architecture of this era is still very underrated. Many valuable buildings from the 1960–1970s are being transformed or demolished. Our “virtual save” project document public buildings that are important from architectural, or urban historical point of view.
