We had a wonderful private tour of the museum. It was interesting to get the Hungarian perspective on 19th Century history and hear about their revolution. They have a remarkable collection of weapons. Absolutely a great visit.

I am judging this based on the experience that I had last year at the Austrian Museum in Vienna. This was not as good because there was very little in terms of explanations. I wish they had audio guides that explained more of the history...More

Very god museum, but very spread out, and a little confusing. But has one of the most extensive collections of ww1/ww2 equipment I’ve seen in a long time.
