Centrally located in Budapest. This is a must see, you learn and see so much. It is an excellent museum. We arrived in Budapest in February (minus 5 degrees), less tourists and a great time to visit

I went early on a Sunday morning as I had only an hour to spare. Even before opening there was a short queue. Later I saw the queue becoming quite long. The museum can become quite cramped under such conditions. While a... More
