The basics

The most convenient way to visit is to prebook tickets to this popular museum—and take as much time as you'd like exploring—or try your luck with same-day entry. For a bird's-eye view, stop by the control room and watch train movement on the monitor wall, or for an insider's look, book special tickets for a guided tour.

You can easily visit the Miniversum between stops on a hop-on hop-off bus tour as most tours stop along Andrassy Street (Andrássy út), or visit after exploring the must-see St. Stephen's Basilica and Hungarian Parliament. Both are located within walking distance.

When to get there

The Miniversum is open seven days a week but closes on Tuesdays in September for annual maintenance. Since the exhibits are located indoors, the Miniversum is a great rainy-day destination, though it's also a worthy stop to take a break from walking tours of historic Districts VI and VII.
