This place is not a museum. Its a pile of furniture piled next to each other as if for sale or auction. What a disapointment! The outside is pretty impressive though. Stick to this and dont spend your 2000 forints.

This gallery has a lot of pieces in it ( the lady told me they were mostly from early last century ) but there was no information on anything. We did enjoy looking at the pieces and having a drink in the attached cafe but not a place I would recommend unless you have plenty of time in Budapest. It... More

Enjoy the outside - it is stunning (& free) Enter, pay 2000HUF each, and descend into a musky basement cluttered with furniture stockpiled as if ready for auction, but not yet catalogued. A handful of lovely items, but very sad, almost with ghosts attached. Best thing is to look up at the ceiling roses and border. Hoped to be inspired... More

This is a private museum and cafe owned by a family of collectors. There are whole room reconstructions with furnishings, paintings etc. most enjoyable.

We have been keen on Art Nouveau since discovering Charles Rennie Macintosh and his work, and the Wienerwerkstadt and Secessionists, so this building, it's delightful facade, the little coffee shop dripping with ambience and the 3 floors of Art Nouveau(and some Art Deco) furniture and objets d'art was a real pilgrimage. I agree with some other reviewers that there was... More

At first I walked into a coffee shop, but to my friend and I sheer delight it was a museum and a coffee shop, it has the largest collection of art nouveau I have seen and all at such great quality! I would strongly recommend this to any arty people

The museum is located North of Szabadsag plaza near the American Embassy. Its entrance is a coffee house & need to find the help desk there. There are quite few objects, furniture, statues, paintings & household items stylezed art nouveau. Unfortunately there were no text or identification for most of the objects. I still enjoyed the display.

We were very happy finding this little museum in an old beautiful building. Have never seen so many beautiful art nouveau items at one place before. Afterwards we were glad to relax in the cosy cafee having a cold soft drink. We bought some new postcards at very attractive prices for 1o pieces. Enjoy Lis and Bjoern

We found this museum/collection our last day in Budapest. Boy was I happy. They have a coffee and dessert place in front. If you like art nouveau you'll absolutely love this place. They almost have too much great stuff to see. There are no descriptions of items in English but it is not really necessary. There is a building behind... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
