The wayfinding for this museum is terrible. I struggled to find the entrance approaching from the no. 5 bus. Which is sad as huge investment in infrastructure - lifts/escalators has been out in o get people up the hill. Once I was in struggled to...More
Excellent, including in English. My advice is start upstairs and work down. There’s all kinds of history: Bronze Age, medieval, modern. Political, social. Also the lovely ancient chapel and architecture in the basement. So much there it can be overwhelming. Highly recommended and free with...More

It was interesting inside, but not much is different from a History museum prospective. However, the photo opportunities outside and looking out over the city was amazing. I think younger kids might get bored.
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
