We spent a couple of hours here and could have spent a couple more. You will bring your generation's point of view with you, which is always interesting to have challenged by other perspectives.

Tucked away in the citadel there were very few people in the museum. The attractions were well kept with some excellent technology. Exhibitions are divided into 19th Century, WW1 and WW2 and each is very informative. Entry prices are very reasonable, too.

If you are interested in the Hungarian history, this is a good place to learn a lot. There are mainly 18.-19. siecle exhibits, and to see them all you need at least 2 hours. The museum is at the Buda Castle hill

The historical center to a city with a multifarious
