Lonely Planet review for Underground Railway Museum
In the pedestrian subway beneath V Deák Ferenc tér and next to the main ticket window, the Underground Railway Museum traces the history of the capital’s three (and soon to be four!) underground lines, and displays plans for the future. Much emphasis is put on the little yellow metro (M1), Continental Europe’s first underground railway, which opened for the millenary celebrations in 1896 and was completely renovated for the millecentenary 100 years later. In fact, the museum is housed in a stretch of tunnel that once formed part of the M1 line until it was diverted in 1955.
