Budapest History Museum

Interesting
is a way to summarise the contents of this museum. Archaeological, Middle Ages, the modern period (the important monuments from the city's history), the building of the castle are traced back through a series of room exhibiting varied collections: items from excavations, jewels, pottery, objects from day-to-day life, etc. Do not miss the Gothic sculpture room on the ground floor, which brings together very beautiful limestone statues and statuettes, which are often very expressive and are at their best under special lighting. Visit the lower floors and basements, the Medieval part of the castle, to discover the beautiful diagonal ribbed vaulted rooms (imposing large room with an earthenware furnace), which mostly date back to the period of Sigismond of Luxembourg, King from 1387 to 1437. You should also not miss the royal chapel, built in the 14th century, under the reign of the Kings of Anjou. Lit by three low windows, it is decorated with a three winged altarpiece.
