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.

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

Tucked away in the citadel there were very few people in the museum. The attractions were well kept with some excellent technology. Exhibitions are divided into 19th Century, WW1 and WW2 and each is very informative. Entry prices are very reasonable, too.

If you are interested in the Hungarian history, this is a good place to learn a lot. There are mainly 18.-19. siecle exhibits, and to see them all you need at least 2 hours. The museum is at the Buda Castle hill
