Hungarian National Museum Reviews
A really grand building but the curation leaves a lot to be desired. The artefacts are mostly interesting, but it's a lot of clothes and stones. While the historical section is laid out well in... more »
The museum itself is worth the visit. Lots to see, great history, fascinating and educational. What was unclear to me was the rule regarding photography. There was a separate photography pass which I.... more »
The content is AMAZING. But the staff are all miserable. Could have done with some guidance on which ways to go around the place, I walked into a dead end.....while some old woman watched me do so, didn't even try and tell me nothing was that way. But alas, it has an excellent retelling of Hungarian history. Right back to caveman times. Very interesting indeed.
We came here in February, our third visit as we come here every time we visit Budapest, this time around we were over with loads of friends and family for our wedding and so came in as a large group. Everyone at Museum were so friendly and accommodating of our needs as we all needed to arrive at different times. The food here is always a highlight for me and my husband but every one of our guests were also raving about it! It's all very rich, traditional Hungarian food so a must if you want some authentic food. The restaurant itself is proper old school and beautiful, you feel like you are transported back in time. The service is also impeccable, very attentive. Upon leaving the restaurant this time round the manager gifted my husband and I a lovely bottle of wine to take home as a wedding gift, a very thoughtful touch and a lovely end to the night. Highly recommended for a special meal whilst in Budapest.
