The museum building itself is a real gem. Beautiful architecture, impressive interior, huge stained glass window. The exhibition is about animals, agriculture, but also fishing and hunting. The National Horse Exhibition is very nice.

At the time of my visit, there was a temporary exhibition of objects from utility collections, which are rarely publicly exhibited, partly because of their monetary value (gold, silver, pearls) and partly because of conservation problems (for example a gorgeous silver cup from the well-known jeweler Adolf Laky).

Cash only/no card was a frustrating start, as couldn’t find a ATM nearby and it made payment difficult.
Overall an interesting collection from early period to about the 1890s period. It doesn’t really have much related to mechanisation and modern technology or the Hungary agricultural industry today. Overall Some areas very good, some areas could be improved.

Wandering around the wonderful Vajdahunyad Castle I chanced upon this great looking building and what a great find.
Turns out this museum ,Hungarian Agricultural Museum ( Magyar Mezogazdasagi Muzeum ) is a purpose built museum building specifically built for this museum in the 1800's ,the facade is superb, its such a photogenic building that's most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate in Vajdahund Setany.

The building is really impressive and the exponations are interesting. Texts are also available in English and German. Many things appear to be set up since a long time without redesign, but in the essence a nice place to visit

The Hungarian Agricultural Museum is worth visiting.
The interior of the building is so impressive. The exhibition is a little more outdated but it is enjoyable. You should also see the cellar in which the wine making process through the ages is explained.

If you’re looking for a really good overview of the history of Hungary, this is the place! Although it says Agriculture Museum, it is much more than that. The timeline of Hungary (going back to the first settlement in the stone ages) was so informative and interesting without being too much information to take on board and much better than the one at Buda Castle; which focuses more on the history of the castle rather than the people. The actual agricultural section, laid out throughout the castle in the City Park, was better than expected but a little bit niche and the upstairs housed a record breaking amount of deer trophies and other taxidermied animals. This was personally not for me but the building was beautiful and the park around it was lovely. The museum also had a cellar in which the wine making process through the ages was explained. Seeing the machinery was lovely and it was very interesting to look at however the information did not have translated plaques in this section.
I think it is worth the visit solely for the history and visuals and would say to go.

The structure is stunning and absolutely worth the visit - however the exhibits themselves are a little worn and less interesting. Still decent, but nothing special.

So much more than you would expect from a Museum of Agriculture! Located not far from Heroes Square. The building and grounds are so beautiful, light-filled and look more like a palace, but no, it was purpose-built as an Agricultural Museum, in the 1800's! The displays are life-like, interesting and informative. Be careful on the lovely marble staircase that goes down to the entry foyer. The steps are quite narrow and I must have looked up at the amazing decor as I was descending, and I tripped. Luckily, my husband was a few steps ahead of me and he was able to grab my arm and stopped me rolling to the bottom - quite a dramatic exit! Highly recomended and our Seniors status allowed a considerable concession price for entry.

The comprehensive museum ticket allows access to the two adjoining towers. The museum is about the development of agriculture, forestry, and related industries and the social history of hungary. It provides a good window into magyar culture, the ordinary day-to-day history, not the history of battles and upheavals. I found the wing to the left of the kiosk as you enter the most interesting. If you see a large yurt, you’re there. Nearby you find some panels explaining in good detail the history of land reforms, taxes, and other changes that affected ordinary magyars. It shed light on the grander themes of hungarian history for me.
