The MNB is creating a museum of the history of money and banking in the Posta Palace, the historic building it acquired on Széll Kálmán tér in Buda, the central bank announced.

The building designed by architect Gyula Sándy was erected in 1924.

After the reconstruction and modernisation of the former Magyar Posta headquarters, the museum will open in 2020.
