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

Reading some reviews here it is both cruel and true to describe this as a warehouse more than a museum. For those used to lots of space and clear information, then this is a warehouse since all of the furniture, objects, and art are all tightly packed with no signage or context. However it is still stunning as a collection,... More

This is quite an unusual visit, being a collection of Hungarian Art Nouveau which is not exactly displayed and has not been given any description or context. However, you feel as though you are rooting through a collection of real treasures and the building is a stunning example of Hungarian Art Nouveau with its specially designed murals and stained glass....

This has to be one of the finest collection Art Nouveau furniture, clothing and pottery in Europe. Dating to the period around 1900-1910, the classic forms and stylised representations of nature, animals and the human figure are all represented on all three floors of this interesting museum. Also, on the ground floor, you can have some tasty patisserie and a... More

This interesting attraction is not quite a museum. It holds 3 stories of amazing Art Nouveau furniture, décor, etc. However, it's somewhat jammed together and generally lacks textual information about the pieces. Still, we loved what we saw, the price is reasonable, and the café charming. A must see if you like Art Nouveau.

Although i loved the Art Nouveau in Budapest, we didn't feel the museum was worth the entry - and you get to see plenty by just visiting the cafe, especially on the trip to the toilets! The food is good, if slightly on the price-y side, with a good selection of nice cakes!

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.
