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.

  • Detailed exhibits but on rather general topics including ancient European / Hungarian history. Beautiful museum describing the history of Hungary. If you have time the second floor is a stunning collection! You need to pay more if you want to take pictures. Beautiful building.with stunning interior. Full of amazing artifacts. Great way to spend two or three hours.

  • There is a lot to see here, and you would probably need best part of a day to fully appreciate all the exhibitions. It is a fascinating journey through the ages and the exhibits are well presented and are precious. It is reasonably priced we thought going in and definitely when you going out. I wish I had had more time to spend in there but alas we had to cram a lot in 2 days. If you can go and spend the time it is a good place.

  • We loved this museum. Lots on Hungary's history and culture. We visited during a warm summer day - most of the museum was air conditioned, with some rooms having auxiliary air conditioners, and a few rooms with no air conditioning. There are a couple floors of exhibits, nicely organized. If you want to see everything, expect to be here a few hours. During our visit, crowds were thin, giving us ample room to view and walk around. As a result, we certainly learned a lot about Hungarian and the region's rich history.

  • I loved the Hungarian National Museum. It's big and figured into rooms with reference to centuries. It's big and well organized. I also had a chance to visit the World Press Photography exhibition which was on. Amazing. You won't be disappointed.

  • Totally worth it for less than 4 euro! Very interesting, I learned so much about Hungarian history. If you are really into it and read everything its likely to spend a full day there.
