A former barracks built in 1830, it is used to house this museum marked by two rows of cannons. Obviously this is where you will find arms, uniforms, decorations, etc. On the ground floor, you can however discover Hungary’s role in the missions for good offices, especially during the the Vietnam War. On the 1st floor the Hungarian revolution and the War of Independence find their place, the same as the Second World War and the insurrection of October 1956.
