Interesting to learn about Hungary from 1000 to 1844, but then a lot of the facts are put in a light that denies a good deal of history and always tries to put Hungary in only a positive light. Read with a pinch of salt

Definitely worth a visit, we spent hours wandering about, not only looking at the exhibitions but admiring the architecture of the museum itself.

You can visit, it's not expensive and very recommended to understand history of Hungary and all cultures which populate Magyar people. There are a lot of rooms, manuscripts and traditional dresses. Some images are better than a description.

Very nice museum of Hungarian History spread across 3 floors. The entrance price is @$5.50 which is very reasonable for Budapest Museums. Tract the history of the Hungarian people from Stone Age to the present. Carve out some time if you want to fully explore....at least 3 hrs.

Best place to understand the history of Hungary. Two floors full of information will guide you from middle ages to the fall of the Iron Curtain.
