The building is lovely and worth seeing inside, I visited this as it was close to where I was staying and am glad I did. The exhibitions are nice, especially the colour one, it was a shame only that the staff constantly follow you around.

This beautiful building, erected around 1896 is a classical example of Art Nouveau architecture. The style itself is worth a visit, especially with the roof being made in the Zsolnay factory, similar in appearance to the roof of the Matthias Church in Buda. The inside is decorated based on Central Asian and Islamic motifs, Even though renovation would be in... More

I saw this building included on a "Ten Best Art Nouveau Buildings of Budapest" list, so I really wanted to see it. The building is indeed extraordinary, especially the roof, with its moss-green Zsolnay tiles. The portico is also exceptional, with its colourful ceramic tiles in an Art Noveau style. However, the museum inside the building was not quite as... More

The exterior of this building draws you in, it is beautiful and the roof is decorated with ceramic tiles from an area in Hungary who make this unique art. Inside the building is also amazing, and they have some marvelous displays. The one on the first floor is a display of items which essentially follows the time line of Hungarian... More

Stunning building on the outside that promised much but little to see on the inside for a high price. We were only in there for an hour. Would not recommend.

Enjoyed the exhibit on Breuer and his contemporaries, but what is a design museum without a fabulous gift shop? Closed. So sad.

Stunning architecture, intriguing exhibition on Color, definitely worth a look. It won't take long to see everything, don't expect to spend more than an hour, but well worth the time.

THe museum has got very good collections and the permanent exhibition is nice. Unfortunately since years there is no money for the renovation of the building - it is one of the best Hungarian art-deco house.

This is yet another beautiful building in Budapest ( this city has so many!) but the curved roof tiles and mosaic work makes it special. The exhibits are fascinating as well, not too overwhelming and intriguing examples of Hungarian design. Loved it.
