We had a wonderful private tour of the museum. It was interesting to get the Hungarian perspective on 19th Century history and hear about their revolution. They have a remarkable collection of weapons. Absolutely a great visit.

I am judging this based on the experience that I had last year at the Austrian Museum in Vienna. This was not as good because there was very little in terms of explanations. I wish they had audio guides that explained more of the history...More
