I will try to avoid repeating the comments in other reviews and just cover a few points.
Finding it: Take the HEV northbound and get out at Aquincum. Don’t be teased by the sight of ruins to the west of the tracks. Cross the main road and head back the way you came until you see the main site shortly after passing under the road bridge. Don’t take the road on the left along the boundary but carry on down the main road until you have passed the site and eventually get to the clearly signed entrance. There is plenty of parking if you are coming by car.
This place will get pretty hot on a sunny day so consider going early or taking something to shade you. You have to buy an additional ticket for the museum itself but it is worth it as the better objects are in there. There are also a few bronze age and Beaker people artefacts.
The Painter’s House is an interesting reconstruction of a Roman villa which feels convincing, while the rest of the site is largely ruins – though the two Kronoscopes do bring it to life (you look through and they display a reconstruction of the site as it would have been) as you scan the area.
Other recent reviewers have commented on things being closed. When we went in May 2013 everything was open.
I would not put this in my top ten of Roman antiquity attractions, but if you have an interest in the subject it is worth the visit.
