If you’re looking for a really good overview of the history of Hungary, this is the place! Although it says Agriculture Museum, it is much more than that. The timeline of Hungary (going back to the first settlement in the stone ages) was so informative and interesting without being too much information to take on board and much better than the one at Buda Castle; which focuses more on the history of the castle rather than the people. The actual agricultural section, laid out throughout the castle in the City Park, was better than expected but a little bit niche and the upstairs housed a record breaking amount of deer trophies and other taxidermied animals. This was personally not for me but the building was beautiful and the park around it was lovely. The museum also had a cellar in which the wine making process through the ages was explained. Seeing the machinery was lovely and it was very interesting to look at however the information did not have translated plaques in this section.
I think it is worth the visit solely for the history and visuals and would say to go.

The comprehensive museum ticket allows access to the two adjoining towers. The museum is about the development of agriculture, forestry, and related industries and the social history of hungary. It provides a good window into magyar culture, the ordinary day-to-day history, not the history of battles and upheavals. I found the wing to the left of the kiosk as you enter the most interesting. If you see a large yurt, you’re there. Nearby you find some panels explaining in good detail the history of land reforms, taxes, and other changes that affected ordinary magyars. It shed light on the grander themes of hungarian history for me.

Located just inside the Castle grounds, the museum is worth a short side trip if you have time!! Lots of agricultural information inside

The agricultural museum is located in Vajdahunyad castle in Vidam park. The entrance fee is 1200 HUF or 1700 HUF for a ticket that includes entrance to the gatehouse tower. The museum is closed on Mondays and opens at 10AM other days. It closes at 4PM on weekdays and 5 on weekends. The main entrance is up impressive steps to a huge door in the courtyard. Across from the chapel is another entrance with a ramp for level access.

I gave this two stars for photographic options as the building is quite photogenic.
We went into the main building to bw confronted by the pay desk so we purchased two tickets each and chose the gate house tower and the apostles tower once purchased we where told the English tour starts at 2pm come to the meeting point.
We duely turned up at 2pm to find about 10 other's there as well. The guide then said follow me and off we charged is the best description almost running pace through the cafe up the stairs to 1st floor.
He unlocks the door to the apostles tower and up we all run past the stuffed animals & paintings no idea what that was about and he certainly wasn't going to tell you and into the roof we went most of us out of breath where there was wonderful views of roof tops again not a clue and guide wasn't going to say and then back down the stairs we all went.
On reaching the 1st floor again door was locked and he ushered us into this hall then took off down the stairs and left us all so we all wandered around these rooms filled with stuffed animals and antlers then some boats n fish then wine making finishing up with ye olde worlde "still" chain saws and tractors non of us had a clue what it was about as it was all hungarian which is why we were all on the English tour so what a complete waste of time and effort the Americans where really not happy and I don't blame them.
On the way out ooooh there's the guide who then tells us we go by ourselves up the Gatehouse tower!
Again joke!
On to the terrace we go shabby to say the least and as for going up the Gatehouse tower well ever so slightly miss lead you are only allowed above the gate and no further so "up the tower" is not actually correct.
Would I go again ... definitely not
Would I recommend. .. definitely not
I have to say this is our second time to Budapest the 1st time was great but that was 3 years ago this time I feel I have a sign above me "BRITISH CON ME" we seem to have to check change constantly, remind sellers about that 200 huf change that you haven't given me, check prices as they seem to change on a British accent, 2 attractions we have been to this and both treated us with distaine. Its a real shame as the 1st time around we loved it this time it's left a bit of a taste and I have no idea why.

The structure is stunning and absolutely worth the visit - however the exhibits themselves are a little worn and less interesting. Still decent, but nothing special.

This museum has excellent exhibits on all things agriculture and nature in a beautiful baroque wing of City Park's castle. The exhibits cover diverse topics from farming, wine, forestry, horses and horse racing, wild animals and birds. The children loved it, especially the wild birds, nests and birds egg displays and had to be chased out at the 5pm closing time.

We visited this nice place in the park on Easter. There were many stalls with food and souvenirs, playing nice music and it was so nice.

It is true that the agriculture exhibition is of ok interest to the average visitor (though it has life size models of most agricultural activities of a hundred and fifty years ago - you can see glimpses in the video 'Agriculture in Hungary' on MyGardenSpace channel).

But the building in which it is housed ! It is stupendous.. Possibly the most beautiful building I have ever been in, anywhere in the world.. To begin with, I have never seen the use of stained glass windows THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING in a secular setting. The designs are flower motifs, and do they win your heart ! There are beautiful, curving ceilings with more flower motifs. You can see glimpses in the video 'Vajdahunyad' on the channel MyGardenSpace.

There is a separate exhibition on an upper floor on hunting trophies in an equally exotic setting. But we could not see it for paucity of time.

There is a museum shop on the premises and a very relaxed cafe as well, next to toilets.

You buy tickets on the left as you enter the castle area.

Found this just as we came from heroes square. The buildings are amazing. Didn't do the visit but I would imagine it would be quite interesting. Can't believe we missed it on our last tour
