Perfect for a rainy day, this interactive museum is a delightful way to introduce kids to the plants, animals, minerals, and environment of Hungary and the Carpathian Basin. The museum, founded in 1802, is the largest natural history collection in the region. The rock and mineral collection is impressive, and there is a fair amount of English signage. There's also a fossil collection, and a sizable exhibit on dinosaurs. Children may find the taxidermy a bit creepy, however. The museum is located next to Orczy Kert (Orczy Garden), a large park with more than 100 different species of trees, a small lake, and a great adventure park for kids.
