Featuring global superstars like Rihanna, Whitney Houston, Edith Piaf, and Billie Eilish, alongside famous Hungarian women like Lujza Blaha and Zsuzsa Cserháti, this exhibition is a must-see. You’ll get to check out original costumes and stage outfits and discover how women have made their mark in the male-dominated worlds of music and film. The exhibition runs until September, so make sure to catch it!
