When one come upstairs into the house that Liszt used for composing and teaching it feels quite warm and homely, due to the domestic furnishings. Nice to see his pianos, and the award document from Kaiser Wilhelm. However there are really only two rooms( plus an entrance lobby). Perhaps needs some discrete background music, but the hum of traffic from the busy street outside brings a realistic touch

The museum is right next to a metro station, somewhat hidden behind a "plain" door (had to circle the block twice to find it). You are require to wear shoe covers.
Ticket price is decent and there is a student discount. However an audio guide and even taking pictures is a big surcharge. Some english is spoken by the ladies there.

The 3 rooms are really spectacular - amazing instrument, collections of letters and manuscripts, batons and paintings...
Its a shame they won't let you play the pianos! :)

It seems some concerts are held there occasionally but I wasn't there in time.

Overall very good for a short (~30-40mins) visit.

People in Hungary adore Liszt and this museum plays up his part in bringing Hungarian music onto the world stage. He lived a life in three cities,including Rome and Weimar, and you can visit Liszt house/museums in these cities too. This one in Budapest has a large number of rarely seen portraits, all carefully hung for best effect, and on the floor are half a dozen pianos of different sorts, none of which you can play in case they fall apart!

A famous European traveller all his life, Liszt was presented with hundreds of gifts from his fans, and many of these have wound up here, making a fascinating collection. Furniture items are either authentic or authentically restored, and all of Liszt's most 'patriotic' Hungarian musical works are lovingly displayed. The audio guides are modern, informative and discreet. You don't need to know a note of music.

Getting to the museum is best on what they claim is Europe's oldest metro - a cute, ricketty, two-coach affair that drops you right underneath the door in beautiful Andrassy ut boulevard, at the tiny Vorosmarty utca Station.

This was a very specialized museum, for Listz, but if u have a music lover or a hungarian history buff in your crowd its worth a visit. Its a small museum and not that expensive, two rooms of a few of his personal items and busts of him and a few other composers.

As others before me have noted, the museum is easier to find once you locate the House of Terror. They're not directly ACROSS the street from one another. The House of Terror is on Andrassy ut. About a block or so away, at the intersection of Andrassy ut. and Vorosmarty utca is the Liszt museum. There is a small plaque on Andrassy (see pics) and the modest entrance is on Vorosmarty ut. The exhibit opens at 10 am, and as you enter the building you will have to climb some stairs, as though you're going to visit someone at home (which you are, in a manner of speaking). The audio guide is a must, and a separate ticket is required for pictures (no flash photography). The best part, for us at least, was getting the place to ourselves for over an hour! It was one of the highlights of our stay in Budapest!
