Don't Miss! Artifacts are amazing....small but powerful

There are wonderful artifacts from hundreds of years of Jewish history. Easy to view in about an hour.

Went read reviews and literature told couldn't take camera when we got there everybody else had them, everything was in either Hungarian or Jewish and no translation available the grave bit and tree were lovely and the synagogue was lovely but other than that, not worth the effort or money, the Holocaust Museum is far better other than the synagogue...

See the rating for the Grand/Central Synagogue, as the National Jewish Museum is included in the price of a tour ticket. Well worth the visit.

The Budapest Synagogue is one of the largest in Europe, a wonderful architecture. In the same spot there is the museum, where you can have an insight in the history of the Hungarian Jews.

Many old items are displayed representing the Jews history and culture in Hungary. It would be probably better to have a guided tour as there is not enough information for stand alone visit.

We spent 20 mins maximum inside. There are some 'free' guided tours you can join, maybe they can bring some more value and experience. Very few things to see. Definitely does not worth the price.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
