  • Events legalább kétszer elmegyek, mert mindig felfedezni valami Új dolgot: Új mozdonyok, motorvonatok, stb. Kiváló's szórakoztató időtöltés fiataloknak, időseknek, egyedül, párban's családdal egyaránt. Twice a year I visit this attraction, because always something new to discover: new locomotives, railcars, a hot-air balloon in the air, etc. The place provides an excellent opportunity for relaxation for everyone, regardless of age.

  • Wonderful from start to finish. Fantastic for kids and adults alike. Don't rush it! Not cheap, but worth it. 
  • Fine details and very well done and can be a great pastime if one has other things for themselves. This is probably something that kids can like.

  • A great place to take children. It is quite interactive as you can press buttons for the lights and sounds to go on, or models to move. However, it only shows Budapest under communism, and not the modern one. It also features other cities in Germany and Austria. There's a small cafe and at the end of the museum is a place for children to play with model trains and blocks.
  • I can't help comparing this to the Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany. This is a smaller and simpler version of that. Not that much detail, complexity or variation. The three areas are very similar, and only one small room was darkened. And even there the dark theme was not properly taken advantage of. Also needs more trains. Air conditioning needs an improvement. On the positive side, there was not congestion on Friday early afternoon, and the lady cashier was extremely friendly. There was a free open WiFi available.
  • We took our eighteen month boy to miniversum as he is obsessed with transport. It's a compact, but we'll laid out and very charming model world. I have an ambition to visit Hamburg's famous Miniatur Wunderland and I suspect this is a nice homage to it - is inevitable that comparisons will be drawn. The models are very nicely made though there aren't as many illuminations or actions as I see in videos of Hamburg. However, judged on its own merits, price and charm, it's a lovely experience. There are interactive buttons that serve as a kind of mystery game as you're never quite sure what they initiate, whether it's the turning off a wind turbine's blades or a tiny bunch of chickens pecking at their feed. However, sometimes you're left wondering if the button worked. You'll hear a relay clicking distantly but have no idea where to look. Part of the fun I guess. Near the end is a basic cafe and a play area for kids. The latter is a whole load of Brio train's and another system. It kept our little one entertained for ages and gave us a bit of relief after a few days of intense holidaying with him. Overall I would recommend Miniversum. For kids is a no brainer, though they may get saturated toward the end and grow bored. For older kids and adults, who may appreciate the workmanship and attention to detail you'll love just spotting all the incredible details that suggest the makers are fanatical about their art - there really is a massive amount of beautiful little extra details added as whims and indicative of the personalities of those behind the scenes - which I guess you might learn more about it you take their additional "behind the scenes tour". After all Budapest has to offer in terms of magnificent architecture and sights, the miniature architecture, effort and love that has gone into miniversum should be on your list of things to consider.
  • Nice exhibition with a lot of details. Really like the fun small hidden stuff - UFO, Empirial Walker and Dinosaur attack. Really good for kids and grown tech nerds. The control room was the final touch.
  • Awesome model layout exhibition about (mostly) Budapest with lots of content. Definitely a family-friendly choice.
