It comes as a surprise that a museum that started with a large collection of numismatics actually turned to be an amazing center for anthropological research in the future and today has turned into a hotspot for research of topics related to flora and fauna. This place was destroyed in both the world wars but stood back after a lot of efforts for the renovation were made. The best part is that this place does not house only the flora and fauna of Hungary but also has a large collection from the third world allies that the researchers used to frequently visit. The place has collection from North Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia amongst many others.

Hungarian Natural History Museum, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review
When I brought the tickets I was asked numerous times if I had any children when I said no the woman couldn't understand...I did as soon as we walked in there was kids everywhere but little else. You have to pay extra for the temporary exhibitions & the permanent ones weren't worth the money. One room with 2 fish tanks, a mini exhibition in the middle & the 2 massive rooms filled with rocks & precious gems (if you like these things then it may be worth it) then there is an upstairs that has a numerous stuffed animals of different species. From start to finish it took us about 30/45mins to look around(including a toilet break!) There was loads of rooms for children (mainly for school children) & a snack room for them. The cafe was basic and there wasn't a large choice in food or drink. There's not much interaction available & its basic it it's lay out & display. For us it was just to little too see & do and the things that were there just basic. Would recommend if you like rocks & gems
Great for kids, lots of animals and information with stuff to get hands-on with. Felt it was all a bit short, and need to pay extra to see the Dinosaurs. Bit out of the way compared to the rest of the city and not all that much to see, but imagine it would be worth the visit if you have a family. Have to pay extra to take pictures, too. Thankfull, I got the Student price (50% off), as I would not have paid more.
We went to see the permanent exhibitions here in early September. It was almost completely empty of people, so I assume it is usually a family place but the kids are back at school. They had lots of good rock samples and some interesting fossils. The dinosaur exhibits seemed to mainly be for kids. There was a wildlife section in an ark, which seemed uncomfortably biblical for a natural history museum. An OK place to see rocks and fossils, also looked like it had a fair few things for children to enjoy, but I wouldn't want to have paid any more than we did.
Great exhibition at good prices. The kids loved all of them - the minerals, the animals, but first and foremost, the dinosaurs. And it is accessible with wheelchair and stroller.
Considering I got the discount price at 800HUF (normal price is 1600HUF), I was less disgruntled at the experience. I arrived at 16:30. 1hr 30 mins before the museum officially closes. Upon entering I was met with stares of what are you doing here? Walking up to the desk, I was met with a blank stare from a man who looked confused at me being there. I said hello and got a sarcastic response back. I was then told I was at the wrong desk. The lady at the ticket desk wasn't much better. After the world class welcome was over, I set off on my tour. Only to be greeted by more enthusiastic staff members who told me I could not proceed any further as I had only paid for the permanent exhibition and not the temporary. That's okay, but again they were rather rude. After working out which way to go, I finally greeted by a friendly face. A chap who actually seemed happy to see me and explained where to go. The exhibition was okay, fairly small and appeared to be mainly aimed at children. There were some exhibits that were of interest but the poor welcome but a dampener on things. It was all done after about 30 mins. Overall - Really bad welcome from staff at desk. One very nice and enthusiastic guy who is being let down by the rest of his colleagues. Not much to see as the museum is rather small. If you have time to kill may be worth a quick visit but don't go out of your way to go here. Very disappointing experience as I was looking forward to going during my time in Budapest
