An excellent musuem on the Buda side of the Danube, north of the hubbub. It is possible to walk to this musuem from the HEV train station. Great enclave from it's surroundings. Great artwork and museum pieces. Very enjoyable.

If you want to know more about the urban development of Budapest, this museum is a must. Nice collection of furniture, trade signs and textiles and more... The only disadvantage is the lack of English texts.

Getting to the Kiscelli Museum is a bit tricky. From Pest, cross either the Széchenyi Chain Bridge to Clark Ádám tér, or the Margit híd bridge. At the Buda side, find the bus stop near either of this bridges for bus 17 (direction: Bùecsi út)....More
