  • The Museum presents the military history of Hungary through a very large number of exhibits presented in chronological order. For those interested in the particular topic is worth visiting, the rest can overtake.

  • Pretty decent Museum! The exposition tells about the military history of Hungary from the its beginning to the present day. The Museum has collected a tremendous number of exhibits, some of which you can touch and hold hands;) A large Museum. You need to be prepared for two-three hour walk. But it's worth it! Located within walking distance of fisherman's bastion.

  • Very interesting with a large range of history in Hungary. This museum takes about 2-4hrs to go through. Great for war history buffs!

  • 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.
