Museums are closed on Monday, except where noted. Museums sometimes offer senior discounts for E.U. citizens or student discounts with an international ID; however, if it is not posted, ask anyway. If a senior discount is posted, there are times when a cashier is willing to bend the rules in your favor, so I have listed senior discounts here to let you know to attempt it. Up until January 2008, a good portion of museums had free entry to the permanent exhibits. The good times are over; there are few freebies any longer. Entry fees are usually posted in English next to the ticket window. A few museums offer a family rate. Many museums are open on non-religious holidays and some actually have free admission on those days. All museums have coat-check rooms. You are expected to check your coat and bags, but women can keep their purse. This is a fairly standard rule. Unlike many countries, museums in Hungary allow photos and videotaping, which thrills a shutterbug like me, but they charge for the privilege. In the listing details, I have included the cost of a photo and video ticket if they offer it so you can determine if it is worth your while to carry the equipment. Where photos or video are not allowed, there are no ticket prices.
