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!

This museum has an extensive collection of Art Nouveau objects in no discernible order. The quality varies greatly but it is well worth a visit for lovers of Art Nouveau. The coffee shop on the premises, which is accessible without paying the admission, has reasonably good coffee and pastries for a pleasant break.

I can only agree with others that this is not really a museum, just a random collection of objects and furniture crammed into an Art Nouveau house. The house is best appreciated from the outside as there is not much art nouveau in the fabric apart from a cornice. It is so crowded it is hard to read the building... More

This museum was a nice surprise, as we went for the café (nice pies) and found there was a museum too. The museum consists of two floors of jugendstil / szecessions furniture and things. All very beautiful!!

Although quite small this collection was a paradise for Art Nouveau enthusiasts like us. Well worth a visit to see so many beautiful things gathered together. The outside of the museum is grat too.

I was really looking forward to visiting this museum, got a discount with the Budapest card, but... it was still quite expensive for whats offered: it looks like just a big art nouveau store.. lots of furniture and just... ehm... stuff. No signs, no information, no explanation, nothing! Of course the stuff is nice, but that is something you can... More

The house is wonderful, but the museum sucks and the admission fee is outrageous, compared to other REAL museums in Budapest. It's an antique shop, not a museum - no information, no curating, no particular arrangement of the items, it's just loads of stuff crammed in a couple of rooms with bad lighting. So visit the house, and have some... More

When we walked into the House of Hungarian Art Nouveau, we were amazed at the museum-quality art and furniture. We had really good cappucino and pastries there, and wish we would have gone back for a visit to the museum in the 2nd floor and basement. It is a cozy, elegant place for a little break in the day.
