The Hungarian National Museum is a historical museum that is the oldest of its kind in Hungary. The museum documents the history of Hungary from the prehistoric age till the modern era. The museum has a number of permanent exhibitions on display, which explain the history of Hungary in a chronological fashion with archaeological finds and historical mementos, including a 14.000 years old decorated moose ulna and a rosetta necklace. A separate exhibition is devoted to the Hungarian royal mantle. Every few months there is a new temporary exhibition.

The Museum is fine if you speak Hungarian, this is NOT a destination for tourists! The staff are unkind, unfriendly and unapproachable. I asked the staff to buy a ticket to a different exhibition, not realising the exhibitions were separated, nor being told this at the front desk when I asked for 1 Adult ticket (They assigned me one random ticket, not explaining what it was for or any other options). They made no attempt to communicate/help me and I was pushed out. The staff glared at me whilst I was the only English speaker visiting at the time. This kind of Hungarian hospitality has put a real damper on my trip, I am writing this still in shock. Being a solo female traveller can be challenging, but this made me feel truly isolated, and unwelcome, when I actively wanted to learn about Hungarian culture. From the small amount I did see inside, very few signs have an English translation - all of the signs are in Hungarian. I would've listed 0 stars if it was possible. I wish I had seen the reviews before visiting. Workers in the tourism industry should not discriminate against English speakers. We are actively paying to visit your country, to experience what it has to offer, boosting your economy. It's astonishing the majority of staff speak no English at all.
