Had a lot of difficulty finding this place - the entrance is through a travel enquiries bureau belonging to a different firm. I think you would have to have an interest in metros to enjoy this museum. Great that they've gone to the trouble of...More

A small museum, but you can easily spend 90 minutes or more here. Some of the displays have a short English description, so it is wise to get an audio guide set up in English. The two women working the ticket desk spoke neither English...More

I was not looking for it, but there it was. It is only small, but inexpensive. It cost me 350 Florints entry, plus 500 to take pictures. There are three railcars, nicely restored, plus exhibits of how the railway was built, uniforms, tickets, maps, and...More

Don’t go out of your way to see this as it is incredibly small exhibition. Pricing is very reasonable though which is good. Took no more than 15-20 mins to look around.

The museum is located on Deák Tér, but it is not a big exhibition. You can see the oldest underground (M1 line), and old uniforms, tickets. With kids, it is a more exciting.

First off the cost after the museum is actually quite reasonable. unfortunately if you want to take pictures it’s 150% more than the cost to get into the museum. What a rip off. They do have a audio guide which is very good. There is...More

Ok, the entrance price of HUF 350 is cheap. But pay 500 extra to be allowed to use your phone to take a picture? Do these people still think photos are made with magnesium flash lites? Have they figured out we’re in 2018?

We happened to be catching the subway at this stop and noticed the museum. We decided to give it a try, since we were not in a hurry. The person selling tickets could not even communicate in rudimentary English, which makes no sense in a...More

A great little museum capturing the history of one of first rail transit systems in Europe. Great to see the artifacts, historical pics and scale models. Could we suggest some more English translations for some of the displays. Worth seeing at very reasonable price of...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
