  • Really nice afternoon if you feel like learning all about Hungary’s history. Offers audio tours and tickets aren’t expensive. (Not sure if Audio tours are in multiple languages, but there are multiple languages next to each exhibit to allow for travellers)
  • There are some really insightful exhibitions here. Most of the time you have English translations. The museum is quite large, and unfortunately I couldn't visit all of it as it was closing at 17h30. It's a great place to learn about Hungarian history. Not extremely interactive, but very informative.
