Hungary's famous composer, Ferenc Liszt, lived in this building from 1881 until his death in 1886. The three-room apartman was located on the first floor of what was then the old Academy of Music. His reception plaque, specifying the possible appointment times, originally displayed on the door of his flat, is now located opposite the museum entrance. The apartment itself displays original furniture and other personal possessions. The artist is depicted on different pieces of art: Joseph Kriehuber's lithographs present him as a young virtuoso, Ernst Rietschel's medallion shows him as a conductor from Weimar, Mrs. Elisa Nemes's oil painting depicts him as an aged artist-professor in the year the new building of the Old Academy of Music was opened (1879), and Jozsef Rippl-Ronai's engraving (based on an oil painting by Mihaly Munkacsy) represents his last years.

 

The building also hosts The Liszt Research Center, which coordinates Liszt-research in Hungary and abroad. At the ticket office in the hall, Liszt-scores, music, books and several recordings are also available for sale. One might be interested in visiting the recitals, which take place most Saturday mornings.
