Budapest History Museum (Castle Museum) Tours

star-3
1 review
Budapest History Museum (Castle Museum)
Located within Buda Castle, the Castle Museum has served as headquarters for the Budapest History Museum—with several locations across the city—since 1967. More than 2,000 years of the capital’s history are present across the museum's five permanent exhibitions spaces, through multimedia displays, restored rooms, and ancient artifacts.

The Basics
Budapest history comes alive at the museum, and with a city discount package, you can access to the Castle Museum along with other top city attractions. Start your exploration of the museum’s four levels beginning in the basement, and then work your way up for comprehensive insight into Budapest’s religious, social, and political heritage.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Castle Museum is a must-do for history buffs.
  • The museum is mostly wheelchair friendly; however, some underground spaces are inaccessible.
  • Budapest Card holders enjoy free entry to all main branches of the Budapest History Museum.
  • Tours may include admission; otherwise, there is a charge to enter the museum, and an additional fee to take photographs, and for some temporary exhibits.

How to Get There
The museum is located in Buda Castle’s E Wing. Visitors can enter the main foyer from ground level or access the underground vaults via the Royal Gardens. Hop-on hop-off bus services provide easy access to Buda Castle, as does the Castle Hill Funicular and city bus No. 16.

When to Get There
Castle Museum is closed on Mondays and has reduced midweek opening hours in winter. Buda Castle hosts a program of annual events, including a summer craft festival and winter wine festival, and access to the museum is often included with a festival ticket.

Budapest History Museum
Now a multibranch organization, the Budapest History Museum dates back to 1887, when the Municipal Museum first formed. The archaeological Aquincum Museum followed in 1894. The collection was exhibited in several locations over the years, with several name changes, and eventually expanded to include Budapest Gallery and Kiscelli Museum. Today, the group is responsible for these four main branches, as well as some smaller attractions, including Bartók Memorial House.
Address: Szent György tér 2, Buda Castle Building E, Budapest 1014, Hungary
Admission: Varies

Rockhoppers' Ottoman Turkish Budapest

Rockhoppers' Ottoman Turkish Budapest

The Ottoman Turkish Tour in Hungary may sound strange. However, today’s Budapest and a great part of Hungary used to constitute part of the Ottoman Empire. Today’s Budapest was an Oriental city back in the 16th and 17th centuries. Mosques, Turkish baths, oriental shops, caravanserais, and several other elements of a Muslim city were present. Even Hungarian language contains approximately 600 Turkish words. Some elements of this fabulous Oriental world can be seen even today. The house from where coffee spread towards Europe, a small Turkish cemetery in the impressive Turkish baths; four of them still work and you may enjoy the comfort of the 16th century Turkish luxury. Turkish baths in Budapest can be even better than the ones in Turkey, since the ones in Turkey are in short of water, but most of the ones in Budapest were built on top of hot springs even with curative effect.

The end of the 19th century was the time when arts rejected the rigid historicism and mass production, and emphasised a new ornamentation. The 3 hours programme, where we shall visit the most miraculous wonders is a light walking, supplemented with public transport from time to time. The itinerary is always different; tours will be tailored to your personal needs. For the more than 700 reference reviews please, visit our site on Tripadvisor!
