Being amongst the most stunning architectural masterpieces of the city (and that is making quite a statement), the museum is frequently used for film shoots and weddings. Worth a visit, if only to marvel at the truly breathtaking exterior!

If your purpose for traveling is to explore different cultures, then you must to see the Ethnographic Museum featuring the cultural history of Hungary. The building itself was once the Supreme Court, explaining why the ceiling fresco of Justitia, the goddess of justice adorns the entrance ceiling. The permanent exhibition named "Folk Culture of the Hungarians" displays the everyday life and festivals of the Hungarian peasantry with dioramas within thirteen rooms. Although this is the primary focal point, temporary exhibitions are continuously opened and cover a wide variety of topics.
