Really enjoyed the informative video at the start of the tour. Plus a quick walk through the process and various buildings before being offered a couple shots of 2 different kinds of Zwack. Then, my favorite part, the mini-bottle collection. This place is definitely worth seeing in Budapest. You should also check out their TV commercials if you haven't seen... More

You'll see these bottle all around Budapest, so you might as well learn all about it and visit this museum. It was very informative. Lots of memorabilia. Information placards are written in Hungarian, English, and German. We had a guided tour and then we watched a movie. Sometimes it is done in the other order, but we got there shortly... More

We had to wait a few minutes until the visit started because it is in groups. Meanwhile we checked what you can buy in the shop: Unicum and gifts and various Hungarian vines. Then we watched a film about the history of the Zwack family, and some commercials. Then we could go to the part where you can touch and... More

Definitely a quick stop and worth it. Thw information is incredible. We learned a few things and it was easy with the Hop on Hope off bus. But my advice is to take the Big bus tour.

If you like Unicum, this place is a must. If you don't, it's well worth a visit for the history and smell! We got the no 2 tram to the museum but you could walk frothed centre. Keep an eye out for it on the left out of town. We arrived and purchased a ticket from the shop then the... More

Unicum is an acquired taste, but learning about its history was fascinating. The reasonably-priced tour includes a great 20-minute video, a tour of the underground distillery, samples of the liquor, entrance into the museum, and a discount in the purchase of any alcohol. I had a great time learning about this family business. Highly recommend.

In order to make this review valuable and useful for you, I have to disclose that I'm a big fan of the Unicum liquor since my drinking age (11 y.o.) It's a tradition for my family as well a long historical tradition for Hungary. The museum and the visit can be quite dull if you're not interested in the unique... More

We went to Zwack museum, because our hop on hop off bus had a stop there and it was worth a visit. Firstly we had an interesting presentation and testing of Unicum and after that you could buy Unicum. Unfortunatly we didn't see the movie.
