Learn about life at the frontier of the Roman Empire at Aquincum Museum. Located on the edge of the empire, the city of Aquincum was an important administrative and military center. It was part of the elaborate border protection system designed to keep barbarians out of the Roman world. Visit the museum to take in the city's history and explore one of the largest archeological collections in Hungary. The neoclassical main building is surrounded by partially reconstructed ruins that give you a sense of the city's layout. You can also see a fully reconstructed Roman house. Take a guided tours, which are given in English, French, and German. Be sure to book your spot in advance. Plan my day in Budapest using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • It is interesting unfortunately not very atttactive. Why not planting some nice roman garden with uncommon plants? Or putting in function one or 2 fountains with fishes, nice place but it feels desolated and lifeless unfortunately
