  • We really enjoyed our trip to the museum. The artwork and sculptures are great for art lovers and we loved the interior design of the museum. Hallways are nicely decorated and you get a real feel for Hungarian history from visiting here. Highly recommended for kids, the outdoor grounds are great for kids running around the museum inside is a good learning experience for them too.
  • Really loved this museum. Beautiful historical artifacts and art pieces. The session silver collection exhibit is very well done. The museum is very easy to get to and centrally located. All of the staff were very helpful and nice too. Highly recommend.
