It manages a collection related to urban history and fine arts of Budapest. In its permanent exhibitions you can find fabulous furniture, trade signs, plans and silver artefacts, modern and contemporary paintings and sculpures.

I had a very nice experience at the Kiscelli Museum. It is a charming building constructed around the remnant of a church. I visited the exhibition "Design without borders", and everything was beautifully showcased. I saw another temporary exhibition on feminist artists, and the permanent collection of Hungarian artifacts and street signs.
Consider it if you want a cultural day and a change of atmosphere

First - it is not easy to reach the museum. you need to have car or to use taxi. Building is not good maintained. Some expositions is interesting, but the general impression - could be much better.

Kiscelli Museum is set in a beautiful building in a leafy courtyard, a short distance from Budapest's city centre. We enjoyed getting out of the craziness and into a more normal, lived in part of the city as we journeyed on the tram.

What was particularly interesting for us were the old guild and shop signs, however the content of the museum is varied and, at some points, unexpected (as a few rooms also house art exhibitions and displays).

Today the management of the museum closed the building before the official closing time without any warning on the online forums. We planed our afternoon to view the exibition but this way we didnt have the chance...

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.

Kiscelli Museum is an out of beaten track attraction: while not very central, it is located in a beautiful old monastery building, in an area full of natural beauty: forests and caves nearby. The Museum itself is focused on municipal treasures of Budapest, objects of arts, daily life, paintings of the city before its full glory. The museum has always some very interesting temporary exhibitions, which are housed in the old church, which by itself looks amazing. Highly recommended! (Can be combined with visiting nearby caves, and hilltop views)

An interesting museum for those who are interested in the urban history of Budapest. The museum has a nice collection mainly focusing on the Óbuda part of the city dating back to the late 18th century.

The variety of the things on display is absolutely amazing! Be it trade, furniture, textiles and clocks, just to name a few. A big historical photo collection, a painting gallery...
The building was a former monastery with a long history.
A gem not in the center, but history and art lovers will like it! Tram no. 17 from Margit Bridge or Bus no 160/260 from Batthyány tér(= Square)
