If the weather isn’t good enough to be outdoors, but you still want to leave your flat, it’s best to check out a special exhibit. The Hungarian capital, Budapest boasts a number of interesting, special exhibitions and museums. These museums are guaranteed to provide visitors with a lifelong experience.
You can see everything from 19th-century toys to the most modern machines in Budapest Pinball Museum. In the nearly 400-square-foot area, you can’t just watch the games, as they have more than 130 testable, playable machines. Arcades are no longer as popular as they were a few decades ago. So the museum showcasing pinball machines also serves as a kind of time machine.
Stunning lights, colours and sounds fly us back in time.
Owner Balázs Pálfi received the operating license in April 2013 to establish a museum exhibition space. He designed this exhibition to be exciting and enjoyable not only for pinball fanatics but also for those less familiar with the game. The museum in the 13th district of Budapest is open from Wednesday to Sunday. The machines can be used indefinitely after the one-time entrance fee, so you can leave your coins at home!
The Museum of Sweets and Selfies is Europe’s first sweet and selfie museum. On two levels, in a total area of 400 square metres, we can find many sets. You can create unique images here that you won’t even know which one to share on social media. Out of the 11 different rooms, everyone can find their favourite. Due to the great success, they have already opened a second place, as the owners do not run out of ideas.
“If you try what it’s like to lie in a tub full of money or gallop back in time on white horses and then drink your favourite coffee among meringues, this is the place for you!”
They are open every day of the week, and you can choose from different ticket types. In addition, it is possible to hold events and marketing photography.
The Zwack Museum and Visitor Centre can be visited in both Budapest and Kecskemét. The exhibition presenting the history of the Zwack family answers questions such as where the first neon signs in Hungary came from. In the exhibition space, we can also learn about the history of Unicum. The Unicom based on a secret recipe of more than 230 years. You can also check out special bottles and liqueur specialities. We can see the distillery building built in 1892, where the Unicum is made. Of course, tasting is also possible.
