Budapest Historical Museum is easily one of the best museums that give an insight into the history of Budapest through the medium of extremely simple mediums, documentations and artefacts. This museum basically is an archaeologist's delight for various reasons. It has ruins and excavations from the old times of Buda, Pest and Obuda- the three cities that make up Budapest. Some of the artefacts are as old as 40,000 years and still increase the historical value of this place. After World War II a lot of these finds were destroyed, but with time a lot of items keep getting added here.

The museum is in one of the most beautiful castles however it’s the worst managed place. It closes at 4pm in winter time despite google says 6p. I got there 3:27pm and the ticketing office still sold me a ticket (half price though) and then told me they close at 4pm. I had to go in and by 3:48pm I was kicked out, merely spent 20 mins in that museum and when I tried to talk with the people there, they became very nasty!!!! World No.1 WORST MUSEUM!
Actually quite a good city museum. City museums are usually quite bad but this one is surprisingly decent. Lots of stuff to see with some interesting artefacts. The building is also in the ruins of the old Buda castle so that's quite a nice experience. If you got the Budapest card it's worth a visit. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it though.
It's all very personal preference, but whilst I really enjoyed all the history around the period leading up to and directly after the war....the rest just wasn't that enthralling. But, it contains a lot of information, so just because I wasn't that interested myself, I can see it would be to others.
It's really big for a museum, it took 2 hours for me to walk through the whole place, and that's when I did not read 90% of the description beside each artefact. I recommend going to Lights and Shadows, 1000 years of The Capital, for the actual history of Budapest. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend this place.
Interesting museum about the history. Friendly staff and a nice collection. A little confusing layout though.
