Hungarian National Museum & Múzeum Cafe And Restaurant

Aloha Everyone,

Today is our last day to enjoy Budapest. We decided to visit the Hungarian National Museum.  

Founded in 1802, the museum has seven permanent displays with explanations in Hungarian and in English. It is a vast collection of art and archaeology chronologically displayed. There was also a small theater where they were playing historical films including Hungary under Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

The Múzeum Cafe And Restaurant is located in the adjacent building. We were informed that at the turn of the century, these cafes were used by members of parliament, writers and actors as meeting places where politics, arts, culture and current events were discussed. Today, there are but only a few remaining. Our choice of trout was prepared to perfection. For more detail, go to

J.J. and I would like to acknowledge Laura and Peter, part owners of The Ebony Apartments, for our wonderful stay in Budapest. Based on the location, quality and value, and strong WiFi, we are happy to recommend this accommodation to fellow travelers.
