Budapest History Museum - Review

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.

Budapest History Museum , Budapest Reviews

  • 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.

  • Most stupid place I have ever been. Almost 60‰ of the rooms were closed. And in the rest there is practically nothing to see. For the Hungarians I suppose it is OK but for tourists really think it is a place that will dissapoint you if you have been in same museums in the neighbour countries.

  • Value for money especially if you are history lover. Good prices when you are under 26.

  • 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.

  • I highly recommend cafe in this museum. A cup of tea and a piece of cake would warm you up in a cold winter.
