Good new Museum apart from the painfully slow entrance process but I guess this manages the amount of people in the museum. We enjoyed it - amazing history and video clips through the journey but some may find it not very hard hitting. The name...More

They don't hold back here. From the moment you walk in. While you wait in line you hear a man in tears talk about the aftermath of the revolt decades after the fact. From there, you start on the top floor and work your way...More

As others have said before me, this museum isn't all the well organised. It's quite hard to work out were to start etc. We had one audio system but which did help and is needed to understand what is happening!! Useful to bring own headphones....More

One of the best exhibitions I've ever seen. Modern, interesting for international tourists, with a few details that will stay in your mind (a carpet with the map - wow, it makes the things more realistic). Good place to spend a rainy day, for sure.

This place left me shattered and feeling compelled to educate myself more. The exhibition is amazing. It's powerful, unrelenting and a must for history and museum lovers. This is in my top 10 of things to do and visit in Budapest. Don't miss it.

A great place to learn about what the people in Budapest had to endure as a result of both the Nazi and Soviet occupations. Cost 2000 florins per adult and another 1500 for audio guide. (cannot be sure as I did not choose this option)...More

It is not a cheerful place but a great insight of the half century of comunist Hungary. The basement looks still the same as it was before it's a place to see.

Deeply disturbing but very interesting look back into communist Russia's power and control after WW2.

I went early on a Sunday morning as I had only an hour to spare. Even before opening there was a short queue. Later I saw the queue becoming quite long. The museum can become quite cramped under such conditions. While a... More

I would say that an hour would be the very minimum. Two to three hours could easily be spent seeing everything there is to see.
