#6 of 12 in Museums in Szentendre
Revisit the 1970s and 1980s at Retro Design Center, home to a big collection of bicycles, motorcycles, cars, household appliances, and other objects from those decades. Providing a look at life during the communist era, the center allows you to see how ordinary Hungarians worked, relaxed, socialized, shopped, traveled, cooked, and entertained themselves under a restrictive regime. A highlight of the center for many visitors, one room displays numerous LPs from the 1970s and offers a window into the country's past musical preferences.

  • Excellent idea! It brings you right back to the past with memories and emotion. I'm really amazed how the industries in Hungary and eastern Europe countries influence to so many other parts in the world. You can see again so many items that attached to your life in not so long a go, from a little toy, soap bar to a television, fridge and car. It's totally delightful to visit this center. It's fun, it's interesting, and it's memorable.
  • The retro design center is very easy to reach by foot and by car. It is very small but has many things to see. For the kids is a very good place to visit cause you can enter inside some old cars and in an old bus and you can show them how the houses looked like in the past. I was very happy to visit it. Our kids entered for free
  • Great to look back at life in the 70's and 80's. Good to see the selection of classic cars from the communist era. Well worth a visit.
  • Awesome trip down memory lane. Really interesting take on the past. Worth a look.
  • For lovers of old stuff, kitsch, cars, and history, all seen through the perspective of communist-era Hungary. Not too busy, and the staff leave you alone to just look and explore. Great place to spend an arvo.
