Müpa Budapest's regular Müpa Junior Sunday programme grows to enormous dimensions on Children's Day. With music and stories on three stages both inside the building and outside in the open air and a host of creative and musical activities on offer, Müpa Budapest welcomes all children and 'children at heart' who are looking to spend an active day with meaningful programmes instead of the usual fare of cotton candy floss and amusement park rides.
