We visited this museum on the recommendation of Lonely Planet's Budapest guide, which listed it as a "Top Choice" and "a gem." While the museum is interesting and the staff friendly, I don't think it lived up to the description and was a little disappointed...More

This museum is in a suburb of Budapest, easily accessible by bus or metro/tram and should be a must see for any visitor. This official name suggests a dreary, dusty old -fashioned relic of the communist era. It is anything but! The exhibits do cover...More

Very interesting displays (with good descriptions in English) of commercial aspects of Hungarian life, including hotels, spas, shopping, coffeehouses, etc. There's recreations of old grocery stores, drug...More

My wife and I had a personal reason for visiting the museum and didn't know what to expect. We were entranced by the collection. If one is interested in retail, advertising, consumer goods, life in Budapest in the 19th century and since, or hospitality and...More
