The Habsburg Nádor crypt is also open to visitors.

Budapest History Museum - permanent and temporary exhibitions revealing restored sections of the medieval royal palace of Buda, chapel, Gothic statues and the history of Budapest.

The nation's largest library, the National Széchenyi Library, preserves medieval codices and the most comprehensive collection of King Matthias' "Corvina" volumes besides staging regular temporary exhibitions.
