  • A great place for those who enjoy educational trips. Learnt lots here about the history of war in Budapest and got to see some impressive weapons. Lots of explanations written in English.
  • Nothing is in English. Everything's looks interesting but it's impossible to understand the history. It would be nice if they had English translations to read. Entrance was 1500 Hungarian
  • Very interesting. The most interesting museum in Budapest. Miss some English signs, but museum crew can and are ready to explain everything.
  • Considerably little to see. Perhaps a couple interesting items for uniform enthusiasts but even then the cloths look new, remade and not original. Only some parts explained in English; thus its difficult for non-Hungarians to read about the details.
  • Nagyon tetszett, kellemes hely időtöltésre.
