  • Free entrance with the Budapest card, including the dome. Just mind the opening hours and last moment of entry. The exhibitions are stunning and there are temporary international exhibitions such as Picasso as well. Being part of the castle it is truly extraordinary and the view of Pest and the Danube river are exquisite. Don't forget to see the fountain outside as well!
  • Great gallery. 3 floors of art. Art lovers definitely need to check this out.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. They have some lovely collections. The staff were a little abrupt though.
  • Excellent galleries, wonderful exhibitions, and amazing views from the dome and courtyards.
  • Beautiful gallery. Inside the Buda Castle. Worth a visit!
