The exhibitions in the Budapest History Museum focus on the turbulent history of the 2000 years of the city now known as Budapest: what the once separate towns of Buda, Pest and Obuda were like. Some of the fine displays from the Middle Ages are the coats of arms of medieval ruling and aristocratic families on carved stones and stove tiles. Detailed information of each period of the Buda Castle is provided on touch-screen displays. You can learn about the various ruling families of the Buda Palace, including portraits, seals, coins, coasts of arms in pictures and through interesting anecdotes and legends. Visitors can peek inside the life before 1873 when Buda and Pest were united, life during the Habsburg monarchy when Austrian noblemen ruled over Hungarians, and after the Compromise creating the Austro-Hungarian Empire with some power equilibrium. Much of the exhibits were lost in WW2, but you will still see many interesting items on display to feel the splendour of the Castle.
