Visited this museum as part of our planned itinerary. Some interesting sights but little in English. This detracted from the experience which, I am sure would have been far more interesting. Entrance fee was approx £6.50 per person during our visit.

This museum is a must-see for history buffs and/or any human being. Well curated and a chilling reminder of how evil people can be.

There is a lot of history and those who are really passionate about it will enjoy it very much. It was one of the main interested things to visit in Budapest.
