    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...

    A sobering glimpse into Hungarian life under brutal Communist rule after WWll German Nazi era & Russian occupation from 1946 to 1991. The museum is a must see!

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

    Very impressive, and sad.

    Hungarians know a thing or two about making perfect museums. Do yourself a favor and visit this one.

    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.

    Michaela Hanková · April 25
  • Pebbles D.

    An Audio Guide is advised to take you through for a more informed tour.

    Pebbles D. Lim · April 22
  • Abdallah H.

    Ask for the audio guide which gives u a nice tour of the place.

  • Mikael A.

    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.

  • Elena E.

    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

    Elena E. · March 28
  • Honza K.

    Amazing exhibition. The start is on the 2nd floor!!!

    Honza Kolář · March 28
  • Pelin D.

    it is indeed a house of terror!! it takes you back to the history of budapest/ hongary, it was interactive as well

    Pelin Dura · March 19
  • Shaileshwori S.

    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.

  • Levent Ahmet

    Must see this place! Dont miss

  • Birand E.

    I think this the most impressive museum here in Budapest. I really felt like lived those moments due to the presentation of those hard times..

    Very moving, well put together

    Orsolya Clancey · February 25

    The best museum!!!

  • Petar K.

    Must see! So unfortunate to see what is human kind capable of doing to theselves

    Petar Karabatic · January 30
  • Simon C.

    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.

    Simon Chan · January 22
  • Barkley H.

    Worth the wait. Amazing museum and purposely makes one feel uncomfortable. Well done.

    Barkley Han-Nunez · December 30, 2014
  • Razvan B.

    A history that must not be forgotten

    Razvan Barsu · December 29, 2014
  • Nadia P.

    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.

    Nadia Prutskova · November 8, 2014

    Error háza.....

    Strongly recommended for tourists from Russia

  • Rajmund F.

    A must see museum...

    Rajmund Fekete · October 1, 2014
  • Vishnupriya B.

    Very interesting and wonderfully designed and structured.

    Vishnupriya Bhandaram · September 25, 2014
  • Michael R.

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

    Michael Riksman · September 24, 2014
  • Jaana P.

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

    Jaana Pinheiro · September 10, 2014
  • Pei H.

    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.

    Pei Ho · August 19, 2014
  • Simone P.

    First museum where Nazist & Communist crimes are in the same level of terror...

  • Ilkim A.

    Informative but very depressing museum. You enter to dungeons from a very slow and airless elevator which is according to me done by purpose.

    Ilkim Altinordu · August 15, 2014
  • Ernie

    It's possible to see everything in about an hour, but for the full experience rent the audio guide and take your time

    Ernie · August 10, 2014
  • Vitālijs G.

    Hungarian specialty - pancakes with meat and paprika sauce - very delicious!

    Vitālijs Gaičuks · July 30, 2014
  • Anna S.

    Don't miss the basements. I like the concept of each exhibition.

    Anna Sierocka · June 22, 2014
  • Eva H.

    A must see while in Budapest to get an overview of the fascist and communist regimes oppression of its own people. The suffering of innocent Hungarians is indescribable.

    Eva Hody · June 1, 2014
  • CarrotMiku

    Not a light-hearted visit at all - but well worth the visit. Be prepared for some very brutal videos/photos.

    CarrotMiku · April 29, 2014
  • Alexandre G.

    Amazing ambience they have created for the museum

    Alexandre Giani · April 18, 2014
  • Krokodilgemuese H.

    This is not a museum. It's some kind of anti-communism Disneyland. There aren't any explanations to the exhibits. You don't get to know where the pictures come from. It's a sad joke.

    Krokodilgemuese Hi · April 11, 2014
  • Iskander S.

    The exhibition is well set out but the English explanation sheets in the rooms are not easy to digest. Makes it hard to get the story. Probably better with audio tour.

    Iskander Smit · February 28, 2014
  • Onenc A.

    Audio guide is a must (subject to additional fee) for those who are not able to speak Hungarian. Otherwise you will have to read lots of leaflets to understand what's going on around.

    Onenc Alkis · January 26, 2014
