Owner description: Miniversum is one of the largest miniature exhibitions in the world, a top 10 place to visit when you are in Budapest. You can discover most of the sights and landmarks from Budapest and Hungary as well as a bit of Austria and Germany. Much to see in one stop: over 5000 miniature figures, 1000 motor cars and 100 trains are in motion in 14 towns and cities on the 1200 metres of rail tracks. There are interactive screens that show original photos of the sights on the layout, so that you can compare the miniature with the original. You can also control the ongoing traffic here and there and bring to life all sorts of actions, motions, sound and light effects. After exploring all amusing details the little ones can play free of charge at the Miniversum playhouse while adults can enjoy some time out with drinks and snacks in the Café. For those interested in technology the Miniversum control room with its huge monitor wall offers a fascinating experience to observe the operation of the exhibition. As a matter of fact, it is difficult to put into words or show on pictures what you are going to see. Come and experience MINIVERSUM with us, we will surely take your breath away! Let yourself be enchanted and you will grow to discover that it is "just like the real thing", and how crazy and miniscule things we could construct in the mini world of MINIVERSUM. Visit Miniversum, explore, behold and control it yourself!

We were a bit hesitate to go in at first since we were thinking it seems like a toy store for 5 year old. We were so glad that we did it! Very amazing miniature city models. It's hard to believe that anyone could make such exquisite things!
It's eye opening for both adults and kids!

We recently visisted Miniversum in Budapest.The whole atosmphere is amazing, family freindly, the exhibition itself is in a beautiful, top detailed old, but very nice building in the heart of Budapest. It is a real good deal for a model train fun, I would say must see thing, everything is brand new, heavy railway tarffic on the layouts, very nice details and proffesional work can be identified there everywehre. The layouts are worked out perfectly, very unique deatils, nicea and perfect details as you just can see the in the real world in Budapest. Further to that certain locations from Germany and Austria also can be found on the layouts Hope these guys will keep up this quality work and they will extend their exhibitions with new themes. Also worth mentioning that entrance fee is very reasonable €6,5 for an adult.

We really underestimated the size of this attraction, it is a crazy sized sand table. 2 hours was not really enough for catch all the details, we will be back for an other round for sure.
It is highly recommended not only with children, if you are older you will find some extremely funny details:)

My sister and I went after walking past while visiting Budapest. We enjoyed it immensely, there was information about each city depicted and we enjoyed the interactive buttons. There were numerous trains going in all directions, lots of tunnels and towns. There was much more there than we originally thought. It took us about one hour to go from start to finish. Highly recommended.
