The museum is the reconstruction of Liszt's last Budapest home in the old Academy of Music, where the world-famous composer lived and taught from 1881 to 1886. The most valuable part of the collection consists of Liszt's instruments: two Chickering pianos, a Bösendorfer piano, a concert harmonium (cabinet organ) made by Mason (Hamlin, a combined instrument ("piano-orgue") by Erard and Alexandre, a glass piano ("piano-harmonica") patented by Bachmann, a unique composing desk with a built-in keyboard (made by Bösendorfer) and a travelling piano. Temporary thematic Liszt exhibitions complete the permanent exhibition. The museum which holds Liszt's Budapest collection of books and scores, is also a centre for Hungarian and international Liszt research and takes part in the teaching activity of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music.
