  • Very large and well stocked museum. My boyfriend and I only had an hour to see it because we entered in the closing time.  more »
  • Museum is really good. Collection is amazing and you will learn a lot about Hungarian past, cultyre and tradition.  more »
  • The time-line on the 1. floor is fantastic. It really tells the great, dramatic story of Budapest in a good, chronology way. Because Budapest has been involved in almost all greater conflicts of Europe, it was a good reminder of this piece of history. The rest of the museum was ok
