Found this place while out on a walk around Castle Hill. Surprised by the breadth and scope of the material in the museum. If you are interested in military history or just Hungarian history, then you MUST visit this place. Simply outstanding!

Visited on a whim. Worth the trip. Lots of exhibits inside and bigger stuff outside. Knowing nothing much about the Hungarian military, I learned a lot and that made it worth the visit.

I was extremely pleased with this small but informative museum. Dealing with the period from 1815 exhibition areas deals mainly with the 1848 Revolution, the Great War, World War II and the era of communist rule, including the 1956 Uprising. Other wars covered included those...More

The museum was interesting. Bad layout, didn't flow. Though I'm sure if we were given a map at the beginning we would think differently. Ww2 section was closed which is a shame because we only went for this bit. Tickets were around £4.50 each for...More
