Located on one side of the Szentendrei ut motorway, the Aquincum Museum is home to sundry vestiges dating back to the Roman era (35 BC). Back then, Aquincum used to be a borough guarded by a Roman garrison in charge with defending certain strategic objectives along the Danube.

At present, the ruins are located nearby the HEV metro station, in a suburban area of Budapest. The main highlight of the museum refers to a water organ (hydraulic organ) which dates back to the 3rd century, recovered and restored during the 3rd decade of the last century. The Roman amphitheater is also of significant tourist interest.
