You don’t have to be a huge fan of parks to enjoy your visit to Budapest’s City Park because it happens to be home to some of the city’s top attractions. Several amazing museums are located on its premises, and here are three that you shouldn’t miss while exploring the most popular park that the Hungarian capital has in store.

Museum of Fine Arts

Heroes’ Square serves as the entrance to City Park, but that’s not the only thing that makes it special. Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts is located right next to it and it features 100,000 artworks, ranging from an extensive Egyptian collection to European art from different periods.

Museum of Transportation

If you want to explore a completely different subject matter after a visit to one of Budapest’s leading art museums, the Museum of Transportation is a place to be. It features an impressive collection of locomotives and railway cars and it’s one of the oldest museums of its kind in all of Europe.

Hall of Art

Located in a 19th-century neoclassical building near Heroes’ Square, the Hall of Art is a heaven on Earth for fans of modern art. The fact it doesn’t have a permanent collection doesn’t make it any less impressive because its temporary contemporary art exhibits are a joy to explore.
