We visited a number of museums while we were in Budapest for two weeks. This was one of the best museums we visited, hands down. The current building (2016) is amazingly beautiful. (We will be sad when the museum is moved to an ugly modern building in the next few years.) The children loved watching the videos and seeing all... 更多
Originally, this building was used as a court, ("Curia"), but after WW2, during communist times it was changed to house the Museum of Ethnography. Consideration has been given to move it to another location. The exhibitions it presents are always of a high quality, now it is about the tradition of "Betlehem". This pre-Christmas Nativity play is performed with different... 更多
You cannot miss this museum, its bam in front of the Parliament and its just inviting you to enter. First impression was the architecture of this building, the inside was simply splendid, sort of quaint. I really enjoyed their temporary collection, they had one from Congo and I really wanted to read more about the collector and his experience in... 更多
Incredible insight into folklore and culture. Gives great background and helps understand the people. interesting to note how resilient the people are in holding onto their traditions. The temporary exhibition on Emile Torday was fascinating not only for the respect he showed to cultures and traditions of people not known to the Western world.
If you want how the people lived this is the place for you. I loved the displays on crafts, like pottery, which were accompanied by videos.
Right across of the Parliament building. We went on Independence Day when just about everything else was closed. The museum was therefore quite busy. The permanent exhibit on the first floor showcases all facets of Hungarian peasant life from the middle 1800's to the early 1900's. Peasant clothing, hunting gear, agricultural and cooking implements, wine and dairy gear...pretty much anything... 更多
The inside of this building is truly remarkable. if you do nothing else, try to see inside the atrium of this astonishing piece of architecture. The permanent exhibit is lots of pieces of rural life from ~1850-1920 in parts of Hungary that mostly now belong to other countries, particularly Romania. If you like axes, hoes, baskets, bowls, and ethnic costumes,... 更多
The most uncomfortable place I have ever been to. Most of the exhibition rooms are empty, there are hardly any signs or explanations of what you are looking at. It is such a massive building and we were the only people there. Really uncomfortable noises in the background. There is a room full of bible quotes and then photos of... 更多
