In a quiet corner of Buda, this house is where Bartok lived for 8 years before he had to leave to escape the Nazis and the war. It has his furnature with folk art carvings. The first floor is a small concert hall.

Thoroughly enjoyed this visit to Bela Bartok's house. Loved the manuscripts hanging down from the ceiling through the stairwell. I did not know much about this composer before the visit and was happy to have this learning experience.

The museum is pleasantly located in a villa district to the north of Budapest in the house which Bartok and his family rented in the 1930s before he left for the US. It is easily accessible by a short walk from a tram stop. The...More

Bela Bartok lived outside of town in a quiet district. The museum is a treasure trove of his artifacts. You can see his piano and the equipment he hauled all over Europe and the Middle East - in search of folk music. He also collected...More

A visit to Bela Bartok's house in Budapest is a must for serious music lovers. It is set in a quiet neighbourhood in the suburbs (be warned if you have ambulatory problems: it is an energetic uphill walk from the bus-stop to the house). The...More
