In a quiet corner of Buda, this house is where Bartok lived for 8 years before he had to leave to escape the Nazis and the war. It has his furnature with folk art carvings. The first floor is a small concert hall.

Bela Bartok lived outside of town in a quiet district. The museum is a treasure trove of his artifacts. You can see his piano and the equipment he hauled all over Europe and the Middle East - in search of folk music. He also collected...More
