Kiscell Museum

Top choice museum in Óbuda & Buda Hills

Housed in an 18th-century monastery, this museum contains three excellent sections. Downstairs you’ll find a complete 19th-century apothecary brought from Kálvin tér; a wonderful assembly of ancient signboards advertising shops and other trades; and rooms dressed in empire, Biedermeier and art nouveau furniture.

An impressive collection of works by contemporary artists József Rippl-Rónai, Lajos Tihanyi, István Csók and Béla Czóbel is upstairs. The juxtaposition of the stark Gothic church shell against the temporary multimedia and art exhibits is visually arresting.
