Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great collection from a pioneer of war-time photography. Opened, I believe, in 2023 the collection is well laid out and captioned. It's a peek into history

Nice area in downtown, visit many times a year depend what exhibitions they have. Parking is very hard at this area. Sometimes not easy to open the big gate to enter the building.

As it has been mentioned by others, the main gallery is not open. I went to the place in November and it was still not reopened. There are NO signs what-so-ever about the expected reopening. There is a small room adjacent to a coffee shop and that has a few Capa photos but otherwise, that is it!

The gallery of Robert Capa photography is currently closed and we were told it will not reopen until October 2022. There are other interest galleries, but it was disappointing not to be able to view the Capa gallery.

If you like photos, this museum is recommended. Many photos on display, few descriptions, but when there is a photo well done, that's enough.

It was moving and humbling to see some of Robert Capa's iconic photographs. A small, but powerful, exhibition, showcasing Capa's courage and bravery. Poignant reference to his tragic relationship with Gerda Taro.

The museum is very small - only seven or eight rooms - but it is worth visiting repeatedly every year because they regularly change all their exhibitions. Only the two rooms about Robert Capa are on permanent display. Capa created timeless classics - probably no need to say more about him. But i found the temporary exhibitions even more impressive. They typically present the oeuvres of one or two Hungarian photographers from specific epoques of photography - this time it was Géza Perneczky's (*1936) conceptual photography and Katalin Nádor (1938-2018), who worked as a museum photographer in Pécs and devolped a strikingly original style of experimental and lyrical artistic photography in parallel, playing with light, surfaces, multiple exposure and other creative techniques. The exhibition catalogue says, quite to the point: "Her secret artistic life reflected the life of creative women working in rural Hungary during the years of Socialism: her work as an artist evolved quietly, without any attention or acknowledgment from the professional scene, in spite of her peculiar, sensual experimentations, and the unique subjective abstraction characteristic of her photographs."

Yet the best part of the museum - at least this year, and at least according to my taste - was the presentation of the two winners of the Capa Grand Prize 2019: Antal Bánhegyesy's photos of orthodox churches and christian life in Romania, almost every photo stunning in a different way: some just magnificient, some exhibiting incredible contrast in architecture or other motives, some wonderfully ironic. And then András D. Hajdú's photo series "Szofi’s Life", following the life of young Hungarian Gypsy girl and her family from her mother's pregnancy to kindergarden age (to be continued), presented in an unconventional style that well matches the subject.

This is more than just a museum, it is probably even more important for fostering and promoting modern Hungarian photography through the Grand Prize.

A friend and I had a very nice visit to the center. The building is currently under restoration so finding the entrance was a bit tricky. The staff was nice and welcoming. The Capa photojournalist exhibition was excellent. We didn’t find the Haiku exhibition to be that interesting but the the Capa was so good that it was worth the visit. The center is small and well air conditioned so it was a wonderful break from the busy and hot metropolis. Only wish they had books in the shop about Capa in English. It is not allowed to take photos in the exhibitions

The collection of photographs is truly stunning and it's brilliantly planned. The cooler room made for a nice break from the summer heat too!
