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

A good review of Hungary in the terms of modern military events (1800-2016). To survey every exhibit, it might take some time. Plan on at least and hour and a half.

We are particularly interested in the history of WWI and there was a new exhibition which highlighted Hungary's participation which we found particularly interesting. There is a lot to see so allow a couple of hours.

Went to this museum today and looking at the reviews I appear to have missed some of it... the problem is non English speaking staff and the lack of a map/brochure. What I saw was great and worth a 4+ stars - what I missed...More
