The Hungarian National Museum is not just a striking looking building. It is not just a museum either. It is a place that is politically very important in the history of Hungary. This museum in Budapest was an extremely important place in the Hungarian revolution. It served as a meeting place and a place of oratory that inspired the revolution.
The museum is definitely a treat for the history and art lovers. The permanent collections include a very vast and detailed retelling of the history of Hungary with facts figures and artifacts adorning the halls. There are also artifacts and ethnographical objects from neighboring areas such as Romania. IF you don’t know much about how Hungary came to be and what kind of socio-political ground it has been built upon, it makes a lot of sense to take a tour of this place on your trip to Budapest.

Hungarian National Museum, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review
The museum contents are very interesting. But at the ticket booth the staff asked us our nationality and then treated us so bad. Even when we asked what's difference between permanent ticket and temporary ticket, he said I don't know. How can I know? He is rude and lack of responsibility. Wish the staff was fired. It's a NATIONAL museum where represents your country's face.
Potentially a really interesting museum. However, accessibility was terrible so I didn't get to see what looked like the most interesting exhibits. I recognise that this is a historical building and accessibility is challenging but it was almost non-existent in my experience. By the time we'd waited to get in (someone had to collect us and take us a back route), I'd already lost enthusiasm for our visit. Once we were in, getting around was just as tricky so my husband looked around whilst I found somewhere to sit with a sleeping baby in pram. I've never been anywhere so tricky to manoeuvre with a small buggy. Really disappointed not to have been able to wander round at our own pace and enjoy what seemed like a good place to learn about the country.
This is a great looking building very well finished. The ticket cost some money but exhibits are in English so worth of paying. In my opinion the external facade of the building is very well finished and worth admiration in itself. The really strange is the tank T34 placed outside.
The chair exhibit was certainly interesting, and I enjoyed the use of a video of a Skyrim mod show how life used to be in Hungary before modern technology. I found general history a little tedious after spending an hour moving through the ages, but I'm sure it would interest others. We paid 600 per a person because we were under 26.
This museum was great. We learned a lot about Hungarian history and the exhibits were English friendly and informative. I enjoyed seeing all the armor and swords, and my girlfriend loved seeing all the historic jewelry and artifacts. In 2 hours we only saw the medieval half of the permanent exhibit, then ran out of time but were satisfied nonetheless. In response to another review...the lack of rum raisin ice cream at the cafe proved inconsequential to our enjoyment of his museum 😄
