We visited Tata in a tour group. Tata is a small picturesque town. The main attraction is Öreg-tó (Old lake). The lake is very, very large. It is located in the centre of the town. Besides there are a lot of smaller lakes and a great number of canals and rivers in the town. On one of the rivers there is an old watermill and in the river you can see many flocks of small fish.
The surrounding of the lake is fantastic – an old castle, shady gardens and a lot of flowers and trees in blossom. You can drink mineral water from a small fountain.
The castle was heavily destroyed. Now it is partially restored. Nowadays the castle was converted into a museum.
In the garden you can see two monuments. The monument to Öveges József, famous and talented hungarian teacher of physics (Öveges József piarista tanár). And the monument to Sámuel Mikoviny, a renowned Hungarian engineer and cartographer, who worked a lot in order to improve the navigability near Tata.
This is a great place for sightseeing and rest.

Kuny Domokos Museum is inside the Tata Castle and the entrance is from the backside of the castle. Here you are supposed to buy an entry ticket which costs 500 HUF and it is free for senior citizens. Students get concession. The souvenirs cost around the same price. The staff hardly understand or speak English so make sure you carry the exact change. If you want to photograph or videoshoot inside the museum you have it pay an extra 1500 HUF and you get an identity badge. The staff is not engaging which can come across as blunt but we had a situation and they were very very helpful.

This museum has sculptures from 2nd century A.D and most of them are devoted to the mythological characters. It also has paintings, antique cabinets, antique furnitures, some specimens of paintings collected from Stone Age (I'm guessing because all of the information was in Hungarian). But I think you have your guides who explain it all to you in English. It's worth a visit.

The area around the Old Lake is really nice, clean and well maintained. The castle also looks lovely, the museum does not have many interesting things (lots of stones) however.

I would advise just to visit the castle without going to the museum. The castle is beautiful, I cannot say anything about the museum. I tried to visit the museum while my two friends waited for me at the cafe outside (the lady at the cafe is really nice). When I asked for the ticket price they charged me for three tickets, counting my friends. I tried to correct the lady telling her that I just wanted one ticket. She said I couldn’t and I needed to pay for the three tickets. I told her I just wanted one and I wouldn’t pay for three. A man approached with a macho and rude attitude saying that I had asked for three (not true) and when I said I just wanted to pay for one he told me I couldn’t. So I basically wasn’t able to go into the museum because a misunderstanding, and the staff was rude and couldn’t just sell me one ticket. I was just baffled.

This is more of a summer palace for the local rulers. It is located right on the shore of the lake which once was surrounded by the royal lands. Small museum, I feel it is not worth visiting, but then again, just my opinion.

If you have only 1 hour to spend in Tata, do not miss this place.
It's a beautiful castle by the lake, that you can walk around, it's free.
Inside of the castle there is a museum, but there is an entrance fee.

Natural beauty at its best, nice lake and trees covered in fog, very well maintained. But for some reason the people seems a bit surprised to see colored people from abroad.

Nice looking castle near the tata lake. The museum in the castle cost money, but you can go up the castle free of charge were you can find a nice view point to see the lake.
Around the castle there is a green garden and if you continue to the right side of the castle you will find a small market and after you will cross it you will see am amusement park.

It was unfortunately foggy this day so we could not see the lake well but in regular weather, there is a café upstairs of the castle that has a wonderful view over the lake.
The castle has a collection of Roman remains and some furniture from the 18-19 century. Tata is a cute little village.
