The Közlekedési Múzeum or Transport Museum of Budapest is one of Europe's oldest transportation collections.
It is a must for railway connoisseurs and amateurs. This museum has a unique collection of locomotives and wagons on a 1:5 scale. This means that a locomotive of, for example, 10 m length is reproduced with all details in a 2 m length model. The models represent a wide range of railway technology. The museum shows also a locomotive and wagon in real size with a railway station of the 1900s.
In other parts of the museum are shown :
The history of road traffic: horse-drawn and machine-driven vehicles, road and bridge building with a collection of old cars, motorcycles and bicycles.
The history of sailing. Sailing from the prehistoric ages; the history of Hungarian boat manufacturing, showed by models.
On a location deeper in the park there is a permanent exhibition about the history of flight and space flight, including original Hungarian and foreign airplanes, including a Junkers F-13, the first all-metal transport aircraft. It also has the cabin of the first Hungarian astronaut, Bertalan Farkas. The development of engines and instruments and Modern rocket-techniques are demonstrated.
