This museum is situated in the Royal Palace itself with fantastic views across the Danube to Pest. It is a bit hidden, at the back of the furthest courtyard. The modern entrance hall does not prepare you for the variety of buildings and styles evident in the museum itself. The most interesting area of the museum is the labyrinth of passages, staircases and cellars which formed parts of the various castles and palaces built on this point since the 1400s. There is lots to see and all is informative and well-laid out. This is not the Hungarian National Museum but a museum about the city and this particular location - it carries out this function with great ease. The exposition on the history of the city is very well constructed and all of the information is available in English as well as Hungarian. Well worth a visit!
