“Very small, but a worthwhile visit”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

To call this a Museum is somewhat inexact - it is three rooms in an apartment block. One cannot understate the significance of being in the property where Liszt lived and worked, but I feel you'd need to know and love his contribution to music to fully appreciate this attraction.

Budget perhaps just on an hour all said - and the audio guide is a must. You'll be lost without guidance.

A small number of important artefacts in an important historical location.

“If you like classical music, this is worth the time”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

An extensive collection of period instruments and artifacts that belonged to F. Liszt. Recorded audio tours available in English. Being a fan of classical music and the piano, this was a wonderful experience.

“Worth a Visit For Liszt Aficionados”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

The Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum (Liszt Ferenc Emlekmuzeum) is definitely worth a visit for Liszt scholars, devotees and music lovers. It is comprised of three small rooms that were once Liszt's home in Budapest. We bought the Audio Guide and would have felt a bit lost had we not. You really need to take the Audio Guide if you want to know what you're looking at in this museum. You have to pay extra for everything here. If you want to take a picture, there is a special rate for that over and above the cost of admission and the cost of the Audio Guide. Truth to tell, we felt they were nickel-and-diming us a bit... and they don't even have nickels and dimes in Hungary. Be warned... there is no place to sit down in any of the tree rooms, and our dogs got pretty tired. Still, we were glad we came.

“For music lovers”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

This is a small, specialized museum in the apartment of Ferenc (Franz) Liszt. There is a very good audio guide, explaining the furnishings, musical instruments, and some history of his life and music.

“Small but fascinating”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

Any one interested in the life and times of Franz Liszt will be fascinated by this small museum. The 3 rooms comprised Liszt's accommodation in Budapest and efforts have been made to make at least one of the rooms like it was in his lifetime. If I had not paid the extra £2 for the audio guide I probably would have been out in 15 - 20 minutes. As it was I stayed almost an hour and a half. Definitely worth a visit!
