What a great museum! In just a few rooms (where Liszt actually lived) a lifetime of F. Liszt is covered. Personal artifacts, scores, and unique instruments are on display. We were particularly fortunate to have doctoral candidate/expert scholar on the composer in our group. Even without him, the experience would have been great. With him, Liszt came alive!

The Liszt museum is his converted apartment packed with instruments, books, and other personal objects that give a peak into his interesting life. We spent about one hour milling around. You really must do the audio guide...without it there is no information besides a one page biography they hand you when you walk in. The audio guide gives background on... More

The Liszt museum is quite interesting. But on Saturday's at 11am there are recitals in the adjoining "Old Music Academy Chamber Hall." If you like Liszt's piano music book this well in advance online. They are usually sold out.

I am a pianist, so naturally I wanted to visit the Liszt Museum while in Budapest. It was really challenging to find, since it is kind of tucked away on a side street. But, once inside it proved to be very well organized and informative. They have posters mounted in the stairwell which provide a basic history of Liszt's life... More

This museum is very interesting for classical music fans. I love Liszt and wanted to see his museum in Budapest. I was hoping for a well organized summary of his life, but saw something else. You can see on you way to the first floor a dozen information panels about Liszt's life, but there are very basic. The three rooms... More

C.a. an hour journey in the footsteps of Liszt. Among others special keyboard without sounds designed for exercise while traveling. Manuscripts, photos, pianos and many other very interesting exhibits enriched with examples of beautiful music.

It's well kept and gives an excellent portrayal of the whole man of Liszt Ferenc. We learnt a lot and the lady at the reception desk was very helpful and even spoke English!

Not a touristy museum: you won't find interactive displays, glossy pamphlets, or a 2000 sq. ft. gift shop selling Liszt pencil sharpeners and tee shirts. I'm not saying this to disparage touristy museums (I'm a sucker for them, too), but just want folks to understand what to expect. There are three small rooms crammed with pianos, busts, memorabilia, books, and... More

Budget about 1 hour to see Liszt's apartment, filled with info and his things. Especially interesting are his various pianos: one for composing, one for traveling, etc. Do NOT confuse this museum with the Academy of Music itself. The museum is around the corner and the hours are different.

This is a one-floor museum, that once was a Liszt's residence, where he spent the second part of his life working is a conservatory professor. The museum staff is very well mannered and lovely. If you appreciate the classical music and have a spare hour or so, we would highly recommend to support this museum. We were able to buy... More
