Museum of Military History (Hadtorteneti Muzeum) Tours

Get an overview or go in depth into Hungary’s military operation and history, from traditional uniforms to key battles and important historic figures. The Museum of Military History is located in the city’s original army barracks, which date back to the 1830s. Exhibits trace back time to the Middle Ages, through revolutions and major world wars, to the present day. There’s an impressive display of flags, coins, armor, and weaponry that collectively show how they have each evolved over the ages.

Most of its artifacts are from the period following the 1848 War of Independence, offering a fascinating look at both Hungary’s own history and role in World War I and II. Cannonballs are still visible in the museum’s walls from the fighting that took place during the revolution. 

Much of the museum is interactive and hands-on, making for an informative and immersive visit. There’s also a chance to learn about the separation of Hungary from Austria, as well as a collection of battle themed art.
