- This museum's architecture alone warrants a stop, but it also played a major role in Hungary's history: Petofi recited his famous 'national song' from the steps here in 1848; there is a plaque to commemorate this famous event. The inside of the museum is also stunning, with lavish use of marble and ceremonial architecture. The displays give a thorough account of the history of the Hungarian nation. It's one of the most expensive museums in the city, but it's well worth it.
