Welcome Networking Dinner at the Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts at the Heroes' Square, opened in 1906, is reputed to be among Europe’s most prominent museums. After the most comprehensive reconstruction project in its history, the museum re-opened at the end of 2018. Thanks to the modernisation, the Museum of Fine Arts now satisfies twenty-first-century requirements for collection care and visitor engagement.

During its centuries of history, the number of works in some of the Museum of Fine Arts’ collections increased manifold; moreover, new departments were added. The number of artworks found in the museum today exceeds 120 thousand.

The Museum of Fine Arts boasts unique event venues, which are suitable for hosting a wide range of events, including gala dinners, buffet receptions, press conferences, business meetings, exclusive private events, protocol receptions, gala dinners and early evening cocktail parties.
