All of the new facilities designed under the Liget Budapest museum quarter project will be opened by 2023, adding substantial green areas to the City Park, the ministerial commissioner for the project said on Monday.
The construction of two-thirds of the buildings has either been completed or is under way, Lászlo Baán told MTI. Next to open will be the House of Millenium in the autumn with an exhibition presenting “The First Golden Age of Budapest and the City Park”, in the fully restored, 130-year-old former Olof Palme House, Baan said.
