Budapest’s City Park is home to some of the city’s must-see attractions, and some of them just happen to be museums. If you want to experience the largest park in the Hungarian capital to the fullest, make sure to check out these three museums during your visit.
Museum of Fine Arts
Located in Heroes Square, right next to the entrance to the City Park, this is one of Budapest’s most notable art museums. Its collection of more than 100,000 pieces covers all periods of European art, but the museum also features an extensive Egyptian collection and an old sculpture gallery.
Hall of Art
Located on the other side of Heroes Square, the Hall of Art is housed in a 19th-century neoclassical building, but the art inside it has a more modern feel. This gallery mostly hosts temporary contemporary art exhibits and it doesn’t have its own permanent collection.
Museum of Transportation
If you want to take a break from art museums and explore something completely different, this museum is just the thing you need. It’s home to one of Europe’s oldest transportation collections, and it’s best known for its unique collection of locomotives and railway cars.
