Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center Reviews & Ratings
Robert Capa's photography is not the one which disappoints, of course. I'd have loved to admire more pictures given the ticket price. By reading each caption of the photos, you can easily terminate the visit to the Robert Capa's permanent exhibition in less than 30 minutes.
I went to see an exhibition which was said to be at the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, but was actually in the cafe next to it. So, although the content was very interesting, there were loud music and people having drinks in the same room: not the best atmosphere at all to enjoy the exhibition in full. The building is a jewel though.
Staff was very kind. The place is in general fine, although a but small for the price. The temporary exhibit was a bit amateur. I was also expecting more from Capa's collection. It is just a couple of small rooms. I was also expecting more recognition of his partner (Gerda Taro). Although she is mentioned in the Museum, the reality is that she took many pictures attributed to Capa.
Friendly staff, interesting pictures, not my taste, but that's no reason for deducting stars! Why I deduct: its not easy to find the entrance, some renovation is going on outside, what's on display is again not easy to decipher? The Capa part is good, some Fotos are indeed strong I really liked the sofas to sit and let the images in the project room do its thing, unfortunately thay didn, t do much for me. Lastly, no context, or some points to relate we're badly missing for me. In my opinion Budapest has better places to spend ones time, still a valuable experience...
If you like photography and especially photojournalism this is a small but wonderful exhibition. The people there were very friendly. I didn't see any lift for disabled people though but I might be mistaken.
