Not busy...they had to turn the lights on for us. We are not experts, just like art nouveau and loved this crammed unlabeled place. The cafe is furnished with more appropriate furniture and even the meat slicer fits in.

The best collection of art nouveau, Jugenstil, I have found in one location, anywhere, and even the building facade is a gem of the period. Three floors are packed with paintings, light fixtures, plant stands, tableware, oddities, tables, desks, side boards, table & chair sets, sofas, etc. in fact, it is more like an antique shop than a museum. It... More

Fabulous building, but the so-called museum is not worth paying for. Three levels of furniture and bits and pieces, all unlabelled (not even Hungarian descriptions or labels). I have no idea whether the furniture came from the family who lived in this remarkable building, or even if it was a home, or perhaps a gallery. For what we saw, 20,000... More

The 5 of us visited this place a few weeks ago. There are a few interesting items on display, but there is very little in terms of explaining what is going on. The basement looks like a furniture store. We had espresso and cakes in the cafe - nothing special, but the bill was suspiciously large. It turns out they... More

The furniture collected here is fantastic, and definitely worth a look. But this is not really a museum, more like an antique shop, really. The price of 20,000 ft is just too expensive for a place that has no information whatsoever about how the collection was formed, who does it belong to, what date do the pieces belong to... no...

This place is not a museum. Its a pile of furniture piled next to each other as if for sale or auction. What a disapointment! The outside is pretty impressive though. Stick to this and dont spend your 2000 forints.

Enjoy the outside - it is stunning (& free) Enter, pay 2000HUF each, and descend into a musky basement cluttered with furniture stockpiled as if ready for auction, but not yet catalogued. A handful of lovely items, but very sad, almost with ghosts attached. Best thing is to look up at the ceiling roses and border. Hoped to be inspired... More

This is a private museum and cafe owned by a family of collectors. There are whole room reconstructions with furnishings, paintings etc. most enjoyable.

We have been keen on Art Nouveau since discovering Charles Rennie Macintosh and his work, and the Wienerwerkstadt and Secessionists, so this building, it's delightful facade, the little coffee shop dripping with ambience and the 3 floors of Art Nouveau(and some Art Deco) furniture and objets d'art was a real pilgrimage. I agree with some other reviewers that there was... More

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.
