The first subway line that came up in the whole of Central Europe actually started in Budapest. It started in the year 1896 and hence Budapest shares a very enriching history of Railways. In the Underground Railway Museum, you can come across this line as well as the first line that transported Franz Joseph during the famous Millennium’s underground opening. Through the medium of photos and models, the museum tells the story of the development of Underground Railway in Budapest. The most amazing part about the Underground Railway Museum is “Night of the Museums” where you will see a lot of vintage streetcars on display on one of the main stations in Budapest.

It's a wonderful look back in time for the world's 2nd subway. It was amazing to see how it was built in the late 1890s. It also shows the newer metro lines and all the ticketing methods used. Unfortunately you are not allowed to take pictures unless you buy an extra photo ticket! The museum is tiny, about the size of the actual M1 line stop. Also, the museum has everything in Hungarian and English.
A small but interesting museum. Key exhibits provided with English interpretation but many only in Hungarian. Basic admission of 350ft is a bargain.
Museum is small but it is good to have a visit However you need to pay some money if you want to take photos
It's small, maybe 30 minutes total time, and that is if you take your time reading everything. But it is very interesting and worth the 10 to 30 minutes visit
Small museum with all important information about Budapest metro. English labels and it's very cheap. Here is also customer centre of Budapest transport company.
