“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The museum has few exhibits. We toured it in 1 hour and the fact that most of the descriptions were ONLY in Hungarian language contributed to this... Overpriced (40Eur for 2 adults and 1 child) and you have to pay extra if you want to take pics but believe me its not worth it... Spend your time and money somewhere else....

“Fascinating.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Though hard to find at first, the Nat hist is well worth visiting. It has a huge collection and knowledge base of fossil, dinosaurs, geology etc. I spent about 3 hours here and it was my favourite museum in Budapest. Widely appealing to both adults and childrem, there is so much to see and do, it's extremely interactive. The staff were brilliant, all spoke fluent English and really knew what they were talking about. The gift shop itself is a treasure trove. Loved it, can't recommend enough.

“You better like rocks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

As far as Nat Hist museums go, this is somewhere in the middle ground. The rock, gem, mineral, meteorite etc collection is really impressive, if you are into that sort of thing. Descriptions in Hungarian and English. Also a floor on the dinosaur finds in Hungary, complete with videos, and further bits on endemic species. A reasonable amount of stuffed animals, a few dioramas, and quite a bit for the kids that come here in schoolclasses and audibly enjoy it. Easily reched via Metro - Nagyvarad ter station on the blue line - and a short stroll, in a part of town you would probably not end up in accidentally.
