To tell the truth, the Museum is not so interesting but you can get some informations about the history of the Abbey. You can see a statue of Károly the IV. (Habsburg), the last hungarian king who spent in this abbey his last day in Hungary, with his wife, queen Zita.
The lapidary is more interesting: you can see here a couple of old statues from the XI-XII. century, reconstructed parts of old and destroyed churches and monasteries found by the archeologists.
