Budapest may not be as renowned for its museums as nearby Vienna, but culture vultures shouldn’t despair: you’ll find plenty of excellent galleries and museums in the Hungarian capital. From the former secret police HQ to an array of world-beating art institutions, there’s no shortage of cultural mooching to be done here. Stray beyond the usual fine art, archaeology and artefacts, too, and you’ll find a whole host of quirkier museums and attractions that’ll certainly get those brain cells whirring. Whether you want to find out more about Hungarian agriculture or the country’s most famous spirit – or just play some retro pinball – there’s a museum in Budapest for you.
