King Szent István Museum set for renovation

The main building of the King Szent István Museum (Szent István Király Múzeum) in Székesfehérvár will be renewed and expanded as part of the Árpád House Program (Árpád-ház Program).

In 2017, the Hungarian government commissioned an exhibition to showcase the Árpád House in Székesfehérvár for 2022. The exhibition will present the house in its unprecedented completeness and powerful glory within the King Szent István Museum.

The former monastery building was built in 1756 and used as such for a long time until it was taken over by the museum in 1980. 

The nearly 3,000 square foot building will be expanded by roughly 620 square meters with the partial integration of the economic yard into a new wing to accommodate reception and service areas, while the original sections will include new exhibition spaces.

Officials insist that the new spaces will meet the requirements of the 21st century, but will retain its original form.

The Hungarian government has provided nearly HUF 5.5 billion for the development project, to which the city has added HUF 189 million.
