A small museum but interesting and a must for railway buffs. Perhaps could have been improved with better presntation and titling og exhibits to ensure all are in english and German to assist visitors.

Although cheap to go in this is a very small museum in the nearby underground station. Go in the lower ground main ticket office to enter. Lots to read and period pictures about its history to look at. Few old trains with a few mannequins in them to see. One to sit in other one was locked off. About as... More

We had some difficulty finding this museum thanks to the different directions on the website and Google maps - not really surprising considering it's actually underground. There are no signs that we could see, and you have to actually enter the station and go behind the ticket office to get in. We paid for admission (350 HUF each) and a... More

This little museum is tucked away behind the ticket office and was under £5 for 2 people plus photography licence. You must enjoy looking at old photographs and be interested in how the underground system developed. Captions are in Hungarian and English. We spent 1 hour looking at all the exhibits. If you want interactive or moving exhibits then forget... More

We have visited a few railway museums in Europe and London and looked forward to visiting while here on holiday. Unfortunately it was a really big let down as there was hardly anything to see and our visit was over in around five minutes maximum!! There is an entrance fee and you have to pay extra to take photos!!! Needless... More

If you are a museum / history buff Budapest will not let you down. This documents and displays the construction of this wonderfully fictional part of this great city's history.

This is the kind of a small place with interesting info and exhibits that you can visit for some 30 minutes or less. If you are into history, or railroads, or just have some time before taking a metro from Deak Ferenc ter station, this is the right place. I mean, for some 20-30 minutes you go back a century;...

Hardly worthy of the title "Museum", it is a single corridor with three trains, and a selection of information. Very unimpressive considering the fantastic network of Budapest

Small museum. It is located through the information booth next to Deák Ferenc tér subway station. You do not have to actually enter the subway system to access. Entry fee was 320 HF (~$1.10 USD in Nov 2015). They do charge to take photos (I think 500 HF) - which although cheap, probably isn't worth it unless you really want... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
