Many more mull around in the more shallow, tepid waters, and hundreds sun themselves on the artificial beach, where tons of sand have been hauled to simulate the seashore. Refreshment tables and a promenade flank all the large Budapest pools, where, on Sundays, thousands spend the entire day in their bathing suits. Two of the unusual attractions at Town Park are the Traffic Museum, showing every device and appliance of the Hungarian State Railways, and the Agricultural Museum, displaying the history of agricultural implements from primitive times to the present, and also showing specimens of all the country's farm products.
