  • The museum is pretty far outside the centre of Budapest and has no other attractions nearby . It's a nice museum with a cheap ticket. Only problem we had was that no-one told us where to go in order.....  more »
  • It a little small for a natural history museum and you can see everything in about 2 hours. However, what is there is great. A very impressive mineral exhibition. A cool exhibition of Noah's ark...  more »

  • An excellent museum, with nearly all explanatory information in English as well as Hungarian. It covers geological and biological evolution, with particular focus on Hungary. The exhibits of minerals, including gemstones and industrial raw materials were extremely impressive and very well explained. The cafe had limited offerings for lunch, but did provide an excellent cup of coffee and a very good example of the local poppy seed filled pastry.
  • Small but lovely place for young and old to learn. Entrance cost is cheap (not sure why kids can't go in for free) and the place is nice and plenty of exciting things to see. They have a 🦕 exhibition in the park where the kids can see various types. Good place and when my kids will be older I will definitely will be back.
