I visited the Museum of Applied Arts on a Saturday late morning. The place was fairly empty, though the contemporary exhibition about the famous Hungarian designer Breuer was quite interesting. The building itself is a gem. Really impressive and unique. Worth a visit, but not a must.

On a day when everything else was closed we ended up at this little quaint museum. The house itself is truly outstanding, built between 1893-1896 it says in the broschure. It has a green and golden roof covered with small tiles in beautiful patterns. The design is really fairy tale like both outdoors and indoors. The exhibition show artworks and... More

We visited this museum a few years ago and were blown away with the things in it, on visiting this time we were very dissappointed there was hardly anything there, what there is is good but not enough, apparently most of the things are in storage. No discount for seniors, shame. Felt dissappointed and can not rlly say this was... More

Stunning building, exhibits were interesting but not the best I've seen of this type. They were setting up for an evening event and the thumping dance music was off putting when appreciating the exhibits.

You have to be really into applied arts to appreciate this museum. Totally passable for most visitors!

It's a different building, with many ornaments and it's really an architectural treasure to the city.

I visited the permanent collection and In the mood for colour -exhibition. Both had amazing, ornamented art pieces, ceramics, glass and jewelry. I was slightly confused of the separate ticketing for the exhibitions, it's worth to buy the ticket to all.

It was a very old fashioned museum with few interesting rooms. The pedagogic was poor, and the staff was very passiv, only asking to see your ticket every time you entered a new room.

I really enjoyed going here. A variety of exhibitions to look through. However, you are constantly being followed, as if people dont trust you. (You will soon realize this happens in all museums in Budapest) so get use to people following you around!

Beautiful architecture, both inside and out. The collection itself is curious but not outstanding, unlike the place! You can just walk around and explore and imagine you are in 1900s. Better go there during the daylight when the whole place is lt up just by the sun! Breathtaking. You may take photos (free) but without a flash. I only wish... More
