As it was raining cats and dogs we had to find an 'indoor' activity. They had two nice temporary expositions and one permanent. For two students these were mildly priced. Also the architecture is beautiful! I really loved walking around in the great halls. We didn't have the chance to buy concerttickets but still worth a visit (certainly when it's... More

Travelled here on tram 2 specifically to this site based on the TA reviews. Disappointed. There wasn't a performance for us to spectate.So just left with the architecture...we had time to roam around...Lots of material (wood, tiles, stone) that don't perform a function, it's purely decorative and not functional. Maybe I'm too much of a purist and functionalist, but I... More

I was here once during my travel in Budapest. It's a real treasure box :) The building has many faces. There's a huge concert hall, a treather for dance, a museum, an excellent restaurant and many others. I could spant a halfday here with lot of fun! Give a try it if you are at Budapest!

Walking inside this huge, naturally well lightened building gives you for few moments the feeling of being a member of the royal family. Hundreds of paintings on the wall of local artists give you some idea of how royal family daily life looked like, how wealthy they were and what beautiful view they had out of their windows.

if in Budapest try attend a Performance in this newly (since 2005) built concert hall. It has one of the best acoustics of any European concert halls and a stunning architecture inside. Definitely worthwhile to see and hear.....

This is a very well appointed modern arts centre in the manner of the Royal Festival Hall in London. It's easy to get to from central Budapest and the interior is excellent. It looks a bit harsh from the outside, though that is modern architecture for you. I attended a piano concert and the ticketing arrangements and practicalities and so... More
