  • Worth while going to. Very good exhibits and I happen to encounter a delightful museum guide in the first room that brought some of the exhibits to life for me and my partner Easy access. Have an informative interesting 2 hours
  • Great musem about Hungary's military history, wit lots of uniforms and weapons. Not a lot of English, but enough to understand what is being exhibited. At 10:30 and 2:30 each day there is an English guided tour of the armoury where you can handle weapons from different periods while listening to an explanation. Exhibits are constantly being reviewed and updated.
