About Holocaust Memorial Center, Budapest
Holocaust Memorial Centre does not only house a heart wrenching permanent exhibition but also has various temporary and travelling exhibitions that add a little more to the historical aspect of Budapest. The permanent exhibition is a reflection of the torturous past that the Jews had to deal with. It also shows that Germany was not the only one hit by the unfortunate mentality of the Nazis but every place that Germany invaded thereafter had to suffer a lot. The Hungarian government had started curtailing human rights, liberty after the start of the World War. But after 1944 invasion of Germany, things got completely out of hand. Today, it functions as a synagogue which is dedicated to the memory of Hungarian Jews who lost their lives during the Holocaust.

Holocaust Memorial Center, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review
Really interesting museum, with a lot of personal history about the Hungarian aspect of World War 2. Captions are in both Hungarian and English, however there is a lot of reading involved. Some of the video footage is a bit overwhelming, but I think that it is important to witness to get a better understanding of the atrocities committed against the Hungarian Jews and Roma people. Very moving and informative - allow a few hours to visit!
New looking museum, many information and media /interactive elements, life size pictures, a lot of efforts to create attractive place for different age visitors, however - children and sensitive people can find it depressing and upsetting. All exhibition halls in the same level of intensity, after the visit you feel exhausted of extremely bright lamps in black rooms, hypnotizing design elements cause you focus on media elements, but not the problem itself.
Very interesting and, at certain points, a bit moving. But there is a lot to take in. There is a lot of text and at times the timeline walking through seems to jump around a bit. But, I definitely think it was worth the trip and only 5mins walk from a metro station.
I really loved the way the museum is conceived. The corridor, the shadows and the footsteps noise makes you go back in the past. The stories, the photos were so well selected. All the stories and memories of my family during the war came back to life.
A great, but tough museum. Definitely worth a visit and a must see! The way they show what happened is very powerful, yet horrible to see.
