  • Fascinating. Excellent collection of Hungarian Art. Best six hours spent in Budapest. Worth every penny! Didn't get a student discount (unfortunately). Would recommend it for art lovers. If you can spend hours looking at a painting, go right ahead. I wish someone had told us to have a big, hearty breakfast before going though. Hehe.
  • Wonderful. The paintings are a pleasure to see and the general organization of the gallery is well made. The floors are divided based on the styles of the paintings. Here you can also find beautiful sculptures. You can visit it for free with the Budapest card. Closed on Mondays.
