First - it is not easy to reach the museum. you need to have car or to use taxi. Building is not good maintained. Some expositions is interesting, but the general impression - could be much better.

An excellent musuem on the Buda side of the Danube, north of the hubbub. It is possible to walk to this musuem from the HEV train station. Great enclave from it's surroundings. Great artwork and museum pieces. Very enjoyable.

If you want to know more about the urban development of Budapest, this museum is a must. Nice collection of furniture, trade signs and textiles and more... The only disadvantage is the lack of English texts.

An interesting museum for those who are interested in the urban history of Budapest. The museum has a nice collection mainly focusing on the Óbuda part of the city dating back to the late 18th century.

Over 200 colleagues attended a gala ball here. Very interesting building, tucked away (we had to access by minibus, not coaches, as the road is very narrow). Stunning room for the main event. Food not bad at all given the size of the event. Staff...More
