Elevator in Parliament Building in Budapest?

I read that there are many, many stairs on the tour of the Parliament Building. Any elevator access for older seniors (89)? Thanks.

I do remember that there was an indoor elevator that one could take, rather than walking up the grand staircase. You'll be able to look back down at the impressive staircase after you've ridden up.

Edit: In their Important Information section, they say:

The House of Parliament is accessible to people with disabilities. In order to ensure smooth access, we kindly request that visitors in wheelchairs inform our staff about their arrival in advance by e-mail at idegenforgalom@parlament.hu.

I'm not sure you would need to do the same to use the elevators, but you might be able to ask more questions via that email address.

We were just there in January -- no problem getting the elevator. Once up the elevator, the tour is all on one floor. I also got the elevator ride down (don't do well on stairs without handrails.)

We were there in December. Definitely an elevator option, or stairs.
