#6 of 15 in Museums in Szentendre
Revisit the 1970s and 1980s at Retro Design Center, home to a big collection of bicycles, motorcycles, cars, household appliances, and other objects from those decades. Providing a look at life during the communist era, the center allows you to see how ordinary Hungarians worked, relaxed, socialized, shopped, traveled, cooked, and entertained themselves under a restrictive regime. A highlight of the center for many visitors, one room displays numerous LPs from the 1970s and offers a window into the country's past musical preferences.

  • A very nice museum with a lot of interesting things to see. Think it was my favourite museum while visiting Hungary. Wish there was some sort of souvenir shop so I could buy a memory from this place. Lovely staff,very friendly.
  • Avsome place. I mainly recommend it for people who actually lived in the 60-90s and can enjoy the most of it because they can recognise all the things they had back than. I took my parents as a surprise and they absolutely loved it. Personally the thing i liked the most was that the rooms were decorated exactly like back in the days. I recommend checking out this museum if you are visiting Szentendre. It is a small but packed museum so it dose not take too much time to check all the things + the price is totally fine. + You can take your dog inside if you put it on a leash!!!
