The National Museum Wiki PageHungarian National Museum, that also covers history from former Hungarian territories such as Transylvania, comprises of a History, Art and Archaeology museum; located not too far from the Great Synagogue and Kálvin Tér.
The museum has permanent exhibitions including relics and artifacts from the roman times and ottaman empire as well as Hungarian collections.
Permanent exhibitions include the Mantle ExhibitionMantle Exhibition (the gold Coranation Robe), East & West ExhibitionEast & West Exhibition (History of the Copper, Bronze and Iron ages, Hungarian Conquest and Early Migration) and Roman-Lapidary ExhibitionRoman-Lapidary Exhibition (The Museum’s collection of Roman Stonework).
It has to be said, although there is a clue in its title, that this museum is more or less for Hungarian schools and for those who like Hungarian history. Tourist-wise, I do not think there is much to keep you interested.
