You have to be really into applied arts to appreciate this museum. Totally passable for most visitors!

It's a different building, with many ornaments and it's really an architectural treasure to the city.

I visited the permanent collection and In the mood for colour -exhibition. Both had amazing, ornamented art pieces, ceramics, glass and jewelry. I was slightly confused of the separate ticketing for the exhibitions, it's worth to buy the ticket to all.

It was a very old fashioned museum with few interesting rooms. The pedagogic was poor, and the staff was very passiv, only asking to see your ticket every time you entered a new room.

I really enjoyed going here. A variety of exhibitions to look through. However, you are constantly being followed, as if people dont trust you. (You will soon realize this happens in all museums in Budapest) so get use to people following you around!

Applied Arts museums like this were created to promote both industrial and non-industrial design in the late 19th century; Budapest being a world center of some design areas, this is a promising venue. In that light, the museum disappoints. The orientalist building is quite decorative but not as amazing as one might think; it is indeed crumbling, but almost in... More

This was a very interesting museum. Although the exhibits were interesting, some of the glass & china was quite beautiful as well as their vast collection of antique clocks, I was even more impressed with the building itself. The roof of green & yellow glazed tiles is so unique that it really stands out from all the other buildings a... More

The exterior is uncompromising, but inside is lovely Islamic shaped decor. The exhibitions are disappointing though.
