The Basics

A must-do for families and foodies, the Chocolate Museum is a scrumptious place to spend a few hours. Learn about the history of chocolate while tasting it (and attempting to make it), then head down to the Rákóczi Cellar to try some dessert wine. Purchase your admission ticket in advance, particularly if you want an English language tour.

How to Get There

Public transit to the Chocolate Museum from Budapest takes about an hour. Get on the M2 metro line in central Budapest, and get off at Örs vezér tere, the end of the line. From there, hop on the H9 regional train to Árpádföld. Getting to the museum by taxi is faster but more costly, since you’re traveling about 12 miles (20 kilometers).
