The museum presents the whole history of Hungary, starting with archaeological finds from pre-history and leading right up to modern times and the post-communist society. I thought it was well organised - for example, archaeological displays can be a bit dull sometimes but they made an effort to present them in varying ways to keep your interest levels up. The lack of explanatory labels in English isn't a huge problem, in fact it forces you to form your own views on the exhibits.
Don't miss St Stephen's coronation robe in a separate room on the ground floor - it is claimed to be a thousand years old.
