No sign of anything before the carve up at Vienna, but then an excellent coverage of Hungarian history onwards. Mostly uniforms etc in cabinets, but some more lively displays. Very quiet so you could concentrate, friendly staff. Opens at 9am now.

If you haven't already, read nccarraway's review since that's what convinced me to go. Very few people visit the museum, so you'll mostly be viewing the exhibits on your own. Definitely do the armory tour. It costs a bit extra but was my favorite part...More

Let me express our gratitude to our guide at Artillery exhibition! I'm so sorry but it was so interesting that I forgot to look for your name. I learnt so much about the weapons and was allowed to touch it and even "shoot"! From Russia...More

I had to go two times! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend the advertised armory tour. I paid $3 and got a private tour because I was the only person who signed up. For two hours, I did nothing but hold weapons and talk with my guide...More

A lot to see. Not the most organized museum and missing some parts of history I am quite interested in but overall pretty well done. Lots of uniforms and weapons. Some interpretation in English.

We went here just to spend a couple of hours out of the cold. We didn't think it was open, as there was hardly anyone around and the huge wooden doors were shut and looked very imposing! There is lots to see and read inside,...More

Set over 3 floors (not all of which were open at the time of my visit) this interesting museum is inexpensive but requires entry to be paid in Forints - no cards. It covers the period from the repulse of Napoleon by the Austro-Hungarian Empire...More

Very informative museum, for history buffs and minor fans alike. Had not really considered the impact the world wars had on Hungary and Central Europe; this museum explains it well. Spent 3.5 hours here and weren't able to read or look at everything properly..
