Summer closure

Dear Visitors,

National Széchényi Library will be closed between July 16, 2018 and September 3, 2018. Our temporary exhibitions will be open during the summer closure, Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

CHANGING SPACES. The Danube region on historical maps – exhibition

The seventy precious items of the exhibition, quite a few of which will be exhibited for the first time, present the development of the cartography of the Danube region between 1650 and 1800. The exhibition is based on a rich collection of maps and landscapes that had been established by the marquises of Baden for military purposes.

Not a jot from 48! The Memory of the Revolution and War of Independence of 1848-1849 – exhibition

The Collection of Posters and Small Prints set up an exhibition to celebrate the 170th anniversary of the outbreak of the Revolution and War of Independence of 1848-1849.

Copying service

Dear Customers,

Before the summer closure of NSZL, we stopped accepting new copy orders. Our services will be resumed on September 3, 2018.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Longer summer closure due to reconstruction

At the same time with the summer closure beginning on July 16, reconstruction work will be started in NSZL. This is why the summer closure of National Széchényi Library will be longer this year than usual. The Library will be open again on Tuesday September 4, 2018.
