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 we made special effort to see it. It's somewhat out of the way, small, and... 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 many aspects of trade - market places, banks and shops but it is in the... More

For me one of the most interesting places in Budapest. All those cool small and bigger objects linked with trade from 19th/20th century shall give a creep to every vintage lover. But I believe that the museum will be interesting for everyone as the exhibition is just excellent.

The name of the museum is not terribly inspiring but it is a little gem. I was taken there by a friend who works in Budapest and would probably not have thought it worthwhile making the effort otherwise. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The permanent exhibitions centre around commercial and domestic interiors from around the late 19th early 20th... More

We took here a 13 year old teenager girl who hated the idea to got to museum. Finally we stayed there for more than 3 hours and she said it was really good and she wanted to return again soon! This is the merit of the organizers for sure! To catch the attention of children is really something to acknowledge.... More

This fascinating museum deserves to be in the center of Pest, not in out of the way Obuda. 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 stores, dining rooms, coffeehouses, and many cool advertising posters. You take cake the number 9... More

It is about the looks and feel of turn of the century (19-20th) Buda already part of Budapest. One can walk trough a cafe, hotel lobby, candy shop, & even a private home. There are numerous travel posters and related businesses. There is a separate history of selling cars in Hungary from the turn of the century trough the 70's.... More

If you don't mind getting a little out of the center of town this is a gem (in Old Buda). This museum has visual stories in English and collection of period pieces make this a enjoyable and interesting museum. It is more a historical cultural look at life years ago. This would be great for families and even children as... 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 gastronomy, this museum is a jewel. We particularly appreciated that some of the newer exhibits... More
