Natural History Museum, Budapest: 2 reviews and 2 photos


This museum is in among the best of his
kind in the world. When I heard there was a
temporary exhibit about flying dinosaurs
I wanted to have a look.

The museums history is also almost 200 years
old but it is a very modern building.
The temporary exhibition about the dinosaurs
wasn't that big , but very interesting.
It had a lot of interactive and high standard
educational material for kids and adults.
I enjoyed the pictures of 'Frans Lanting' in
king size on the wall. Fantastic. I got some books
from his ''lens' . So far the temporary surprizes.

As for the steady collection I advize you to
snoop around on their website

There is a very interesting parth about polution
and local biodiversity. A giant mammoth
will catch your attention for sure and the
king size ark of noah.

The museum has an international
character and is very up to date... so if
your into natural history , make sure you
got some time to spend in this museum.

Free with the Budapestcard , but they charge
admission for the temporary exhibits.

Address: Ludovika tér 6.
Directions: Take the blue (No. 3.) underground line
'Klinikák 'or the 'Nagyvárad tér' station,
- Use tram No. 24 to 'Nagyvárad tér'
