Permanent exhibition at the Aquincum Museum
The storerooms of the Budapest History Museum hold one of the largest archaeological collections in Hungary. From prehistoric times to the Migration Period, over one million archaeological finds from the Hungarian capital are kept at the Aquincum Museum. Following the refurbishment of the new exhibition building in 2007-2008, the Visible Storage opened with the purpose of presenting as much as possible of the vast, internationally-recognised collection, which had previously been difficult to access for professionals and visitors alike.
The Aquincum Visible Storage tells the history of Budapest and Aquincum through the chronological and thematic display of archaeological finds from prehistoric times to the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin. The exhibition invites visitors to wander in and explore the fascinating world of the Aquincum Museum’s storerooms. The Visible Storage has approximately 1,200 objects on display.
