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

A nice collection of the history of Budapest. Not a large amount but just right. You do have to pay extra if you want to take photos.

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. Well worth a visit.

District I / Buda
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
