House of Music Budapest – Feel the vibes

Music

You can try out various sizable musical instruments & jump on the inbuilt constructions that produce sounds, and it is accessible outside of working hours.

The City Park is a jewelry box beloved by many for decades, that transforms and changes its face to keep up with the times.

The latest innovations started in the 2000s with an ambitious and innovative Liget Project that aims to renew the whole of City Park. One of its recent creations was opened to the public in 2022, and it turned out to be certainly one of the coolest spaces dedicated to music in Budapest. Meet the House of Music, a place where you can immerse in music in any imaginable way:

  • experience a harmonic dance of sounds and visuals in the hemispherical Sound Dome;
  • discover the history of Hungarian and European music at the permanent and temporary exhibitions;
  • attend a concert at an indoor concert hall or open-air stage;
  • experiment with music at the Creative Sound Space;
  • educate yourself about music at a lecture or in the library;
  • play music at an educational workshop or at the interactive music playground.


The latter one is my favorite, as there you can try out various sizable musical instruments and jump on the inbuilt constructions that produce sounds, and it is accessible outside of working hours. The three-level building, designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, symbolizes a tree of life and organically fits into the surrounding fabrics of nature with its roof decorated by golden leaves and openings for the trees to grow through.

I'd recommend checking their website for upcoming programs and booking your ticket in advance for the permanent exhibition.
