If you're a Liszt fan or even a musician of some type, you may enjoy this more than I did. It's a small museum of Liszt historical items. It is also where he lived at one time, so is historic. I'm not a Liszt fan, so found it not particularly interesting. Very small museum - I was pretty much done seeing everything of interest to me is about 15 min., but had to wait for the group. Might recommend it if someone had an interest, wouldn't go back myself.

This is a small museum dedicated to Franz Liszt. The museum contains some of his works and his piano and is where he once lived.
If you like classical music it's worth going to, but if you aren't that interested you may find it less so.

Whilst only consisting of three rooms, this is a special place for anyone with a passing interest in Liszt, his life and his music. The entrance fee is great value at only 600 Ft., probably the price of a beer on the Square named after the composer.

Be warned that you will be asked to wear funny little fabric slippers before entering the rooms, as unlike other museums that recreate the living space of a notable person then promptly ropes it off, here you are allowed to roam around over the old carpets and inspect the artefacts as closely as you want.

Almost all the exhibits are well labelled, but perhaps the most pleasing part of the experience is to stand in the room which would have housed the original study area for Liszt's students, and imagine you are about to receive your lesson from this monumental figure of musical history.

Walked a long way to get to this museum. Woman on the cloakroom was very rude. She refused us entry because we didn’t want to take our coat off. It’s a very cold day - we aren’t use to this weather and we were freezing. We decided to leave and she said ‘bye bye’ in a very condescending way as if she got some enjoyment out of it. Very odd!

As a non-white person, I was stared at and followed around the museum the whole time by a sour-faced museum attendant. I was also made to put my (tiny) handbag into the cloakroom, even though the two white tourists who were there at the same time were allowed to keep theirs. The museum is also over-priced and extremely small. I would definitely not recommend this museum for people of colour.

To be honest I am disappointed: the ticket (2000 HUF) is overpriced for three(!) rooms with a few relics, some rude staff and not even some nice music in the background.
It literally takes 10 minutes to visit, but it's not worthy at all.

Free entry, I paid a small amount for an audio guide.
Waste of time - 3 rooms, dead boring, learned absolutely nothing, not one note of music played on the audio guide or in the 3 rooms.
Desperately needs PR intervention.
My advice ....do not go. Absolutely dead boring. . ..
Saw everything in less than 15 minutes, such a huge disappointment.

If you play the piano or are studying music, you’ll enjoy the visit. It’s only three rooms full of furniture, pianos, and belongings, but if you enjoy Liszt, this museum will feel very special to you.

It’s not that big of a deal, and it’s a bit overpriced, but it’s definitely a must if you listen to classical music.

My only complaint is about the staff. They haven’t been rude or unprofessional, but I’d like to remind them that smiling is free.

Worth visiting if, and only if, you are interested in Liszt and his music. Small but atmospheric place, just 3 rooms, packed with pianos, furniture and artefacts belonging to Liszt. One page info sheet gives you a good background but not much interpretation of his life and work (maybe you are meant to know this already). The staff did not seem very friendly or welcoming.

Three small rooms with random documents, instruments, muddy portraits and some miscellaneous odds and ends that seem thrown together. The musty old building is altogether unremarkable. The audio guide is a complete waste of money. What a disappointment
