Budapest Museum of History / Budapesti Történeti Muzeum

Budapest Museum of History, located in the Royal Castle, takes its visitors through turbulent times of Budapest's history from the first settlements to the modern-time Hungarian capital. Launched in the end of the 19th century, its collection holds artifacts that have been found during archeological excavations, at reconstruction sites as well as items obtained from private collections. Its exhibits cover a vast period of time, dating back to prehistoric age, with some relicts being even 40 000 years old, Roman times and the Great Migration Era when several ethnic tribes interchanging each another in this area. During the Middle Ages, Buda became the center of the royal power, giving way to large scale construction works. Lots of daily life household items have been preserved since then, e.g., plates, tiles, coins and fine Gothic carvings. The collection spans from the beginning of the 17th to the beginning of the 20th century. Highlights of the collection are outstanding artisan creations - clocks, pieces of furniture, silverware, porcelain, glass, garments, etc.
