The Hungarian Theatre Museum and Institute is a public museum specialized in documenting all aspects of the Hungarian theatre life and promoting research into Hungarian theatre history in the context of regional (Central European) and European theatre life. Our exhibition venue, the Gizi Bajor Actors’ Museum offers a permanent exhibition on Hungarian theatre history and a number of temporary exhibits on various aspects of the Hungarian and international theatre life.

To theatre researchers we offer a specialized library, a modern and complex online theatre database and 12 individual collections on all aspects of the theatre life. Many of our travelling exhibitions are invited abroad and we put a high emphasis on international cooperation: joint research projects with our regional partner institutes from Central Europe, the V4 countries (theatre architecture – TACE, PACE.V4 framework programme, symposia on theatre museology, theatre systems and the social role of theatre) and partners from larger Europe (ECLAP – European Collected Library of Artistic Performance, STEP – Project on European Theatre Systems, PQ Prague Quadriennal). Our Puppet Archive and Dance Archive are two of our most complex collections which also represent a special international value.
