This somewhat dingy museum at the top of Castle Hill dedicated to the history of Budapest in all its manifestations, sounds like a boring slog, but it's actually interesting, and afterward, everything about the city will start to make a whole lot more sense. The evidence list starts with chipped Paleolithic stone tools (ca. 50,000 B.C.) and includes pottery and glasses from the Roman town of Aquincum. Later arrivals—the fifth-century Hun and seventh-century Avars—also had settlements in the area before the Magyars arrived in the tenth century to found the modern Hungarian nation. Each era is extensively documented with archaeological artifacts, and signs explain the collection in both Hungarian and English.

Closed Tuesdays.
