Yes, the staff if indifferent. Yes, it's just three floors of furniture with no descriptions or educational literature about ANYTHING. But as a wood-worker, I gasped with pleasure half-a-dozen times. Some wonderful pieces, all in excellent condition. I have no idea who made them, when, or of what materials, but you can't have everything. Worth an hour or two. Photography... More

We just fell by chance on this house and museum. The house with its typical Jugendstil architecture and decorations attracted us right away and then we found out that there is a shop and museum on its first two or three floors. No doubt about that the the place is very rich in objects and poorly managed. Actually it is... More

Absolutely gorgeous Art Nouveau building and an interior filled with Art Nouveau and Art Deco furniture and objects - some part of the cafe, some part of the museum, and some for sale. It was a real delight to sit in this lovely environment AND have a delicious hot chocolate with whipped cream. Service was friendly and quick. The cakes... More

Was very excited about visiting this building. The cafe looked great--with loads of interesting furniture. Walked into the "gift" area and was promptly reprimanded for straying into the museum--how I was supposed to know, I have no clue. No sign. No gate. Should have known right then to let it be, but we came back the next afternoon for coffee... More

A hidden gem near the Hungarian Parliament building, this combined cafe and museum in the restored House of Secession is definitely worth a visit. The cafe is a delight, with tasty treats and quality drinks. The museum, although in parts a little like a second-hand furniture show room, has a fantastic collection of furniture, some art and household items from... More

I arrived with my aged mother at the ticket booth, an old man (though younger than my mother) did not answer when I said "Good morning" and looked at us as if we were thieves, or Martians, or I don't know... terrible! Then an older woman arrived (his wife?), same style, it reminded me my husband visiting East Germany before... More

We love just looking at Art Nouveau objects. If you want to learn something about them this is not the place for you because there is no signage. Just three floors crammed full of Art Nouveau furniture and objects such as paintings, vases, china, and so on. We were the only people there at the time. You pay your admission... More

It's like visiting a private residence. And, there is no air conditioning. Multiple floors and lots of old furniture and nicnacs, Yes, it is asymmetrical, and yes it is like nothing else we saw in Hungary.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
