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

Most unusual museum. It was working when I first went many hears ago. Fascinating trains and architecture. Well worth a visit. Only a couple of feet under the road!. Travelled a year before the date optons, but it has not changed.

It’s about £1 to get in so it won’t break the bank, most of the exhibits are in Hungarian, if they were in multiple languages then you may stay longer but there are some English translations. Informative and interesting

Even though it is a small museum in nowhere, it is a good one for just 1 euro. I was hoping i could enter the wagons but in the time i visited it was locked. You have to go just for a walk.

In Budapest under Deak square on the underground pedestrian walkway, close to the Király Street exit, is this small but very well organized and hugely informative transport museum. That makes it most interesting is the authentic setting. The foundation received a place in one of...More

the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
