No vacation is complete without a visit to a museum. When you are in Budapest, you can’t go wrong with a visit to the National Museum. This is unlikely to be your most inexpensive trip to a museum, but it is worth every bit of the admission price. The building itself should be considered one of the most beautiful sights in Budapest. Aside from the physical beauty of the structure, it is plays a huge role in history. The museum is the sight of the writing of the national song by Petofi.
The inside of the museum is no less exciting. Inside you will find lots of marble and amazing ceremonial architecture. The displays themselves are a lesson in Hungarian history from the beginning to the modern day. The National Museum shouldn't be overlooked in your quest to see all of the Budapest attractions. Be prepared to spend most of your day in the museum trying to see it all.
