Budapest with children

Exploring a new city as a child is an especially big adventure. This could not be more true if that city is Budapest. The capital offers a multitude of sights, special experiences and exciting programmes for the little ones. But adults needn’t worry, they won’t get bored!

No child is immune to the charms of the Palace of Wonders. The theme park reveals the secrets of science in a playful, fun manner and is ready to awe all age groups with its 250 interactive games. We can visit a space station, demonstrate our aptitude in an escape room, solve logic puzzles or even carry out chemistry experiments. What’s more, we have the chance to immerse ourselves in a spectacular 5D movie experience or to see a science show. Not to mention that the science centre awaits families with different special programmes each day. It is worth buying a Budapest Card before visiting the Palace of Wonders as card-holders can enter the realm of scientific wonders free of charge.

The Tropicarium is an equally magnificent place. Upon entering, children are transported to the world of the seas and oceans. The aquariums are filled with huge sharks, lazy alligators and thousands of colourful fresh and saltwater fish. They even have rays that kids are allowed to touch! Visit the Tropicarium and marvel at these creatures’ beautiful blue habitat. Adventure-seeking families can witness something truly thrilling if they visit the establishment on Thursdays at 3 p.m. This is when the sharks have their lunch! Bringing your Budapest Card will be worth your while. You’ll enjoy 15% off your admission fee if you show it at the entrance.

Museums where visitors can touch everything are a rarity. It’s even more uncommon to let them play with the artwork. If that is something you’ve been craving for, you don’t need to look any further. The Budapest Pinball Museum combines both! This is Europe’s biggest permanent interactive pinball exhibition, which has gained worldwide fame. All the 130 exhibited pinball machines can be played, including vintage items that were manufactured back in the 1800s. You can even try the world’s very first pinball machine! Bring your Budapest Card with you, and you’ll be eligible for a 10% discount.

Timetrap exit game, which is situated in the heart of the city, boasts exceptionally unique escape rooms. Entertainment is guaranteed for fans of Harry Potter and their parents if they visit this venue. Teamwork is a must, since everybody will need to have all their knowledge for the family to escape from the confines of Azkaban. If you own a Budapest Card, you will enjoy 30% off the entrance fee.

Visitors are also eligible for a discount at the Miniversum Theme Park. Families will be dazzled by one of the world’s biggest model layouts featuring 5,000 miniature figures, 1,300 metres of rail tracks, 14 towns, 600 buildings and 100 trains. The latter can also be controlled by children. One thing is for sure: it’s not just children fascinated by railways that will enjoy themselves – their dads will also have a good time.

Let the adventure begin!
