Take the free walking tour first in the morning and then go for this. We just found this by accident when we were walking on the way to Heroes memorial. You'll see the Opera too along the same boulevard. For 2 Euro, we have seen...More

This is an incredible museum! Really gives you insight into the terror the Hungarians suffered during Nazi and Soviet occupation. Definitely purchase the audio. Way to much reading otherwise.

This museum is well presented and tells of the history of the communist and fascist regimes in Budapest. Get the audio guide! There are sheets of paper to explain each part of the exhibit but it is entirely too much reading!

This museum is based on filmed interviews and accounts and you need to have a great deal of patience to watch it all. The curating is as imaginative as is possible given the filmic nature of much of the exhibition. Each room has been interestingly...More

The museum looks rather good from the outside. A long line of people waiting to get in. Inside a great looking tank welcomes visitors. However, the setup is historically incorrect, ptoper displays are missing and some information is incorrect. In my view the museum is...More

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
