We visited during a day long trip to Buda. This museum is worth spending time in. There was an excellent collection of Hungarian art, presented with the history of art in the country. Learned a great deal and and the art was excellent.

This gallery (not to be confused with the National Museum) is located in the palace on Buda Castle Hill and is huge. It is well laid out and highlights many Hungarian artists. The audio tour is worth while.
