“Boring exhibition in a nice buildning”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

We had a spontanious visit when walking by. The house it self is marvelous and the entrance is a bit hidden, and that made us curious. You propably need to have a deep interest of agriculture or history to appreciate the Museum. If this is a short stay in Budapest there are lots of better museums to visit. But the low admission can still make this a cool stop on the way from or to the Városliget City Park.

“Great building, oldskool style museum, good for taking a rest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

The museum is located in the Varosliget city park, next to the Vahjdhunyad castle. I guess not many people visit it because you have to push a large wooden door.
The museum is located in a beautifull building both on the outside and inside. The staff is polite and quite friendly. For a small admission fee (guess it was around 1400 HUF) you can dwell around. The museum style itself is quite oldfashioned, bit boring in some places , but some bits I quite enjoyed reading, like how the Magyar people migrated from Asia to Hungaria.
But even if you don't enjoy museums ,the inside of the buiding is worth it, as several rooms have nicely decorated ceilings , walss and huge staircaises.
The museum is quiet, we didn't find many tourists there, some locals and some school classes, so you do everything at a slow pace.

“Building is Marvelous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2013

Would I add this to a must do while in Budapest probably not unless you have the time. But the grounds that the museum is housed on are magnificent.

Inside it is not really my sort of interest but can see why it does have an appeal.

Bottom line: It is not that expensive and is worth taking a look at while in the area.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

The building of the museum is beautiful.
The exhibitions give very interesting information about Hungarian agriculture from the early times of Hungary. Though I am not really and deeply interested in the topic I enjoyed the exhibiton.

“enchanting enviroment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

walk around the park and the castle called VAJDAHUNYAD. This was only an 'exhibition booth' on the Celebration of Millenar, from paper and wood, but the people liked it so much that from donations they built it up from stone and brick. Many different palace and castle from the territory of the historical Hungary can be found here as a part or fragment. The biggest building give plae to the Agricultural Museum. I always feel 100s of year history around me when i visit this place.
I did not give maximum, because i think more english text- information would be necessary for turist to know where they are, what they see.
