Budapest History Museum Reviews
Not much to tell. A museum is a museum. It takes a lot of time if you tend to read everything that is on display. For a museum like this it would be nice to have a guided tour every hour or so. more »
This was renovated and rebuilt .The permanent collection at this museum include all kinds of history of the rulers ,Bronze age, medieval and modern age ,and political and social history. Hungary.... more »
The time-line on the 1. floor is fantastic. It really tells the great, dramatic story of Budapest in a good, chronology way. Because Budapest has been involved in almost all greater conflicts of Europe, it was a good reminder of this piece of history. The rest of the museum was ok
Very informative n museum is very big. Exhibits were not so interesting.
