Visitors reviews

  • It was really interesting to learn about the history of the area, as well as information about geology, flora and fauna, etc. It’s sad to learn about man’s intervention with the natural water table and that the lake will not likely exist in only a few more generations. The museum is a nice facility and worth the time to see.cyclejam

  • We enjoyed this museum. Interesting displays explaining the history of Balaton with good English. It’ll only take you an hour or two to explore it, but you should enjoy it.Bill T
