Well priced visit full of history. Much of it is self lead with reading and watching videos. There is also a underground prison which you can visit which is obviously a bit upsetting but really interesting. There is a small cafe and toilets if you want to stay longer.

This museum is very interesting and the material is sensitively put together. If you are interested you will learn a huge amount about Hungarian history in the 20th century, and hear many personal stories. It is a very sobering and thought provoking experience. One small point - it's very warm inside the exhibition so dress accordingly!

Interesting place to visit. The display is fine but most of the museum is in Hungarian. You can't take pics inside but when we took out phone to translate from hungarian to english, the Museum staff thought we were filming and tried to stop us. We explained that we are trying to understand what is written, and he tried to... More

It took me about two hours and a half to see everything without audioguide. In nearly each room they explain a specific moment in the history of Hungry, and they give you a piece of paper with all the information about it (two different papers, one in Hungarian and one in English). It's a shame some of the models you... More

Really interesting place to visit. Superb display, great theatre and mood music throughout the exhibits trekking the sorry tale of the past century in Hungary. Pretty brutally honest about the Nazi era and extremely hard on the time of Soviet occupation. I've heard that some visitors are critical of the focus on the Soviet era but I suppose their occupation... More

Get an audio guide, its well worth it. Most of the museum is in Hungarian and very little translatio s, you have a sheet of paper in english in every room but not convenient. The audio guide explains perfectly in a story tell fashion the history of Nazi occupation followed by communist occupation of the soviets. The rooms depict the... More

I felt so sad walking around this amasing museum, these people have suffered not only from the Germans and the from then from the Russians.

Museum is not even located in the actual building it is based on. Very confusing, very long, and not worth the money.
