My husband and I wandered in through a door and found ourselves in a museum. We were able to use our Budapest Card and we wandered about before we went up floors and found more things on interest and more about the history of Budapest....More
Packed with artefacts the exhibitions give a great insight to a rich and complex history.
This is generally a more traditional style museum and less interactive displays. For history lovers a great place for a few hours.
It also offers stunning views across the city....More
We made the mistake of starting our tour of this museum in floor -2 where the old bits of stone work are displayed.
The exhibitions on the 2nd and 1st floor were excellent but by then we were tired out from reading too much dry...More
We've decided to visit it as it was included in Budapest Card. It was difficult to find the entrance. Exhibits are located on many floors. I found few interesting photos about metro, but most of the exhibition was not very interesting. I would like to...More
The entrance to the maginificent building held a great promise for what's to come. Alas, the disappointment was evident quickly. The layout was very confusing and instead if a historic sequential exhibits, you get whiplashed by going from pre- historic to 1956 and then back...More

Interesting museum housed on 4 floors and located within the castle complex.
Many interesting artefacts and not so many as to overload your senses but just enough to make it worthwhile and to keep you interested.

The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
