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.

  • Great place to go and take in the history of Budapest. Lots of walking but a nice way to learn more about the history of this beautiful area. Since I was not part of a tour I was able to go as fast or as slow as I wanted which made it even more enjoyable.

  • Nothing too exciting but if you like history and want to know about the castle then it's worth a visit. We walked up to it which was hard work and the signage (from the back) wasn't great. Good views of Budapest and I nice afternoon out.

  • The experience will be more enriched if the Museum was opened. Unfortunately during my visit it's closed. My pictures are all from outside the premises. I must say that the place is as grand as to hold a museum inside. So the ratings are based only on the surrounding areas.

  • Worth a visit to the area, but don't go in the museum though, it's not that interesting and alot of areas are unfinished or closed. It lacks care and effort and just has lots of almost empty spaces. Too expensive ticket price, I've been in alot better free ones.

  • This museum is packed with the history of Budapest from prehistoric era up to the current condition and you could easily spend a few hours here. It is located at the rear area of the castle district; after taking a photo at the fountain of King Matthias, proceed further to the right for about 150 meters and there you go. A permit for photography is needed in the museum.
