    MUSEUM OF HUNGARIAN AGRICULTURE

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Museum of Hungarian Agriculture is the biggest museum of agriculture found in Europe. It is situated in one of the lovely buildings of Castle Vajdahunyad on the Széchenyi-island in Városliget.

    If you read my earlier tips on this Castle you would have read that many different styles were used in the building of it. This one is different to many of the others, as it's Baroque from the 16th to !8th century. The Baroque palace is the replica of Austrian palaces in the Austro-Hungarian empire.

    The museum of agriculture has been here since 1897.
    I wasn't interested in this Museum, but after reading what the interior is like, I think I should have gone inside just to see that!
    It is described as having a marble arched court up to the first floor via marble staircase, enormous crystal chandelliers, carved pillars and stained glass windows.
    The website gives the dates and some information on the upcoming exhibitions.

    The permanent exhibitions are ......
    The History of Hungarian Agriculture from the Beginning to 1945
    The Development of Domestic Animals
    Hunting Exhibition
    Forestry
    Hungarian Grapes and Wine in Europe
    The History of Fishing in Hungary
    Natural Values, Conservation
    From the Kingdom of Plans

    Well, too late for me to return now, just shows that you never know if it will be interesting or not - unless you go inside!

    The Reinassence building of the castle is today the Mezogazdasagi Muzeum (Museum of Agricolture). Here you can fund Magyar things used to work the land and many things about the agricultural life in Hungary.

    Hungarian Agricultural Museum / Vajdahunyad Castle

    by Airpunk Written Sep 13, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small castle was built in 1896 for the millenium celebrations of the hungarian state. It shows a crazy mix of different styles from the past centuries. Today, the castle is used by the Hungarian Agricultural Museum which shows items from agricultural life in Hungary. I didn’t enter the museum, so I can’t say much about the exhibition. The castle itself was nice enough. Ist name, Vajdahunyad Castle, comes from a castle at the city of Vajdahunyad. The tower of Budapest’s castle is a copy of that castle’s tower. You can enter the inner court during daytime and have a look into the chapel. Another point of interest.is the bronze sculpture dedicated to the Anonymous Magister.
