Budapest History Museum reviews
The time-line on the 1. floor is fantastic. It really tells the great, dramatic story of Budapest in a good, chronology way. Because Budapest has been involved in almost all greater conflicts of Europe, it was a good reminder of this piece of history. The rest of the museum was ok
Very informative n museum is very big. Exhibits were not so interesting.
