Lonely Planet review

In the pedestrian subway beneath V Deák Ferenc tér, next to the main ticket window, the Underground Railway Museum traces the history of the capital’s three (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 and station (called Gizella tér) that once formed part of the M1 line until it was diverted in 1955.
