Ethnographic Museum - Review

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

  • What a venue for a meal. Food was fantastic to match the decor. You've got to try this place before it is turned into the Hungarian supreme Court again.

  • A nice museum. But be warned, it's now closed for the next two years. Pity!

  • This building is closed until 2020. Check the website and don’t make the same mistake we did. Fortunately it’s opposite parliament so you can go there instead.

  • Only for hungarian or European. If you don't know Deutsch, it may be boaring

  • 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
