The museum shows the history of the Underground railroad from its construction to nowadays. The Underground Railway Museum, opened in 1975, commemorates the first underground railway of the European continent (Millenium Underground Railway). The line was inaugurated on the 2nd May 1896. In 1996, for its centenary the whole underground section of the line and the museum were refurbished.
The primary aim of the museum is to display the history of the Millennium Underground Railway and the Budapest metros in an authentic environment. Not only the carriages, models, documents, photos on display but even the walls create a unique historic atmosphere in the heart of Budapest.
The visitors is welcomed by the original inscription of the former name of Vörösmarty tér, "Gizella tér" (genuine Zsolnay ceramic titles.)
The exhibited vehicles are original. The Millenium Underground vehicle are more than 100 year old. The final section of exhibition shows the futher metro constructions of Budapest.

The museum is interesting, it is worth to see, though the exhibition is not large. It is worth to note that it is the cheapest museum in Budapest: the tickets cost only 320 Forints, the same price as a bus ticket. It is funny because your ticket to the museum looks like a bus ticket which you have to validate in the same way as a bus ticket.
