  • Housed in the old barracks Palatine, this museum shows parts of the wars in which Hungary took part. Uniforms, flags, maps and weapons make up the acquis.

  • Something difficult to find (on the Castle Hill) it offers a good collection of the military history of Hungary. While there is little large appliances, this is not, however as hidden elsewhere behind glass or not easily accessible through barriers.

  • 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.
