The Ethnographic Museum in Hungary is one of the oldest museums in the city. Even though it separated from the National Museum in the year 1947, it has done a great job in maintaining its distinct identity. It moved to its building in Kossuth Square in the same year and has displayed various interesting objects ever since. There are objects from Romania and Slovakia here which have added the Hungarian glory even more. The place mainly gives you an insight into the day to day Hungarian life before World War II and has various items that were used back then. You will find ornaments, boats, costumes and furniture of that time.

Ethnographic Museum, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review

  • We ended up here while waiting for our Parliament tour to start and were pleasantly surprised by this little museum across the plaza from Parliament. There is a permanent exhibit upstairs and an exhibit of world press photography on the mail level. (the press photos were spectacular btw!! ) Plus this is a beautiful building! The permanent exhibit was all about rural Hungarian culture over the years with extensive photography of peasant life at the turn of the last century. My grandparents left Eastern Europe in 1921 and it was interesting to see photography of how they might have lived before they came to the states. This was well worth the 90 minutes we spent here

  • Disappointed with the the museum. It was recommended in our guide book but did not find it engaging. Only spent about twenty minutes inside.

  • Really beautiful building, which was the palace of justice until around WWII. (The building itself was the runner-up in the competition to design the parliament building at the end of the 19th century.) The ethnographic exhibit is extensive.

  • shoes shoes...loads of shoes. Kind of expensive. should deffo have been part of the budapest card but was not. 2nd level was better. Loads of things on display...but 2800 huf was a bit steep. should at least have discounts for budapest card holders. Nice and clean toilets.

  • Very nice building. The exhibition is not that great, but good place for first rendezvous.
