    Amazing exhibition that does a great job in duly establishing the connection between National Socialists and Communists as different factions using terror to fight for authoritarian power.

    Key to understanding 20 century Hungarian history, the museum show how little difference there is between fascist and communist regimes. Must see.

    Amazing museum about the Nazi and Soviet occupation in Hungary. You should definitely visit when you are in Budapest. Very impressive.

    Fabulous place! You get special price for students but you have to be patient with exhibition which is in hungarian language. They have only sheets of information in English.

    Interesting exhibits into the terror caused by fascist and stalinist regimes. The building is the former secret police HQ where a lot of the interrogation and torture took place.

    Such a well designed museum, really like the concept of the exhibition. Makes you feel the way you are supposed to. Must visit.

    Nice museum, but is was impossible to read and watch everything. In the end you go into the cells and guaranteed you walk out feeling strange. Must do in Budapest to learn the brutal side of communism

    The Rick Steves Budapest book does a good job describing each of the rooms. You can skip the audio guide if you have the book.

    They did a great job seting up the museum in order to tell the history mainly of the soviet ocupation (and hungarian nazi party). we were not expecting much but ended up spending almost 2h there...

    Daunting history of communism in Hungary. Must visit but you need the audio guide to get value out of your visit.

    In this museum you feel the atmosphere. The entire museum is interwoven with images and sounds, until it passes the eyesight. Definitely worth a visit.

    Better than expected, very emotional even for me who has no real connection to Hungary and the opression imposed upon them. They need to improve English signs though.

    A place with potential, but badly organized. Not one exibit carries a description tag, if there is, it's in Hungarian. The only info come from loose sheets, impossibly long. Disappointing & irritating

    Great way to glimpse Hungary's history w/ authoritarian regimes. Cold basement w/ prisons gives a realistic sense of what went on here. Audio tour is good; ongoing music & visuals overwhelm at times.

    The information leaflet in the very first room is very biased (trying to absolve Hungary's participation in WWII). The top floors aren't that well planned/confusing, the basement is very confronting.

    Make sure to get the guided or audio tour if you don't speak Magyar. And you will have a whole new appreciation for the people and the country.

    Worth a visit, especially for the price. Well laid out. Focuses heavily on Hungary after WW2 - the forceful introduction of Socialism.

    Pay extra 15€ for the audio guide if you don't have patience to read the long description papers! It really worths!

    Brings to life the Nazi and Soviet influence in Hungary during the 1940s and 1950s. None of the exhibits have English captions, though, so the museum is difficult to follow at times.
