You can take a bus from Szell Kalman ter to visit the house. Easy 7mn walk with nice houses around. If you are lucky or well aware, take the chance to be at a concert in the house. There is a small auditorium with maximum 100 seats, so you have your noze on the piano whan an artist is playing!

This Bartok house is surrounded by villas and is in a great area of Buda. In the garden you have a sculpture of Bartok. The museum is nice with some personnal Bartok instruments and music tools; Try to visit the house when there is a concert in the little showroom were you have your nose on the piano!

This museum is great for those with a love of or fascination for the composer Bartók. It is easy to find if you have google maps and search for its Hungarian name and it's an easy bus ride out of town into the depths of suburban Buda. The museum is entered by pressing the buzzer at the gate and asking to visit. It is a beautiful, quiet, understated place, as one might expect. We had a very thorough personal tour from one of the staff at the museum, who was clearly very knowledgable. Great to see Bartók's study and piano, which looks to be in fabulous condition. Also his collections of insects, folk instruments and so on, and old ink bottles, papers, bits of pencils and general stuff of everyday life. Some great family photos too. Nice insight into this extraordinary composer's personal world.

A lovingly curated collection of Bartok's possessions from his personal and professional life. If you know a lot about Bartok already you may not necessarily learn anything new about the man, but the pictures and the space makes venturing out on the 11 Bus from Batthyany Ter for 30 minutes worth the visit. You'll get a personal guide for your visit. You won't be able to take pictures.

In a quiet corner of Buda, this house is where Bartok lived for 8 years before he had to leave to escape the Nazis and the war. It has his furnature with folk art carvings. The first floor is a small concert hall.
