Built in 1847, this museum has the most important and comprehensive collection of Hungarian artefacts and relics. Starting from the history of the Carpathian Basin, you move through the Magyar tribes’ exhibit and follow the shaping of Hungary from the conquest of the Basin to the end of communism. In the basement, artefacts from Roman and medieval times are displayed and in other rooms you can find the treasury’s collection of gold Celtic jewellery, the baroque library with Beethoven’s Broadwood Piano, and memorabilia from the socialist era.
