Why visit: history of Budapest, medieval ruins, Castle Hill
The Budapest History Museum (Budapesti Történeti Múzeum) is dedicated to the history of Budapest. Archeological items uncovered in various local excavations in Pest, Buda and Óbuda - the three cities which make up Budapest - are on display. The oldest finds date back more than 40,000 years. Unfortunately not many artifacts survived from the once famous medieval palace, however lower levels of the museum feature some remains and a modest selection of restored rooms. Finds from new and ongoing excavations keep adding new items to the collections.
Getting to the Budapest History Museum:
The museum is located within the Royal Palace, in wing 'E'. Take the Funicular from Chain Bridge, the public bus (Várbusz) serving Castle Hill from Széll Kálmán tér or one of the many paths leading up to Castle Hill.
