The painter Pál Molnár-C. lived and worked in a villa located in Ménesi Street on the hillside of Gellért Hill for 50 years. After his death his younger daughter, Dr. Éva Csillag Pálné set up a family-owned private museum in 1984, where the works of art are on show in their birthplace, and the smell of paint is virtually sensible. The Pál Molnár-C. Studio and Museum has been the oldest family-owned private museum in the country since then.
The Pál Molnár-C. Studio and Museum has been a museum collection of public utility since 2011. The painter's revival comes about through the extraordinarily versatile oeuvre concerning its subjects, its style and its technical expedients, as well as through the artist's personal articles and the family remembrance. The permanently changing MCP exhibition displays a cross-section of the rich artistic legacy, with an exhibition material varying in pursuance of different topics from time to time.
Since 2008 two museums have been operating at the same location. In the neighboring Spring Hall, which was transformed into a flat museum from the quondam home of Pál Molnár-C.'s elder daughter, Magda, at the same time perpetuating the name of its residents, we exhibit family-owned collections of great masters. The main idea of these exhibitions is to expose the artist's human nature by handing out a brochure titled ‘The Artist's Mirror', whereby the visitor has the opportunity to encounter the creator's human character and personality.
