  • The Museum is excellent! The exhibition of local history can be many things to know about Lake Balaton, shipping ... The retro part of something huge, amazingly good atmosphere ... The temporary exhibitions are also impressive, mostly painting and photo exhibitions, these beautiful pictures ... You do not need to pay for parking! :) I recommend it to everyone! Pleasant for everyone! ;)

  • The Museum was opened in the year 1898. It's an interesting historical and local lore museum of Hungarian culture and history of the area. Constantly changing exhibitions. For children conducted interesting training sessions.

  • We enjoyed this museum. Interesting displays explaining the history of Balaton with good English. It'll only take you an hour or two to explore it, but you should enjoy it.  more »

  • I just improved a lot over time with a rather fine exhibition on the top (1st) floor. Which highlights the lake Balaton and everything attached to it from flora, fauna, animals, tourism, shipping and so on...Very informative and fun at the same time. Not overly complex but still highly recommended to visit for those who want to know more about the lake and its wider area.
  • Good overview of the history, animals, flora and founa.... in hungary, german and english, nice information for adults and children
  • Huge place to go around with well detailed information plates about the whole history (archeological, geological and natural sciences, too) of the lake and area. Very interesting, recommended to visit.
  • A bit "oldschool" but very interesting.
  • Very detailed history of Lake Balaton. Worth the money. You have to buy photography ticket if wants to take photos.
