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.

Very intense and grotesque museum in a very informative way - not for the faint of heart. I learned a lot about the Holocaust and Hungary's role in it. The museum did great in informing through different media, thus making it both more accessible and more vivid - I really got a sense of how horrible and excessive Holocaust was, in a way I wasn't aware of. I would have liked some more instructions on how to use the museum - just some more headers would have been helpful, or information that the first family stories were to be continued later on.
Very impressive museum, I think this is a must if you visit Budapest. It only costs around 1.400 or 1.700 HUF, can't remember exactly but it's really worth it. I was there for about 2 hours but you can spend a lot more time if you listen to all the videos and read all the texts. I don't speak Hungarian so some stuff was not understandable for me, but that was limited to fragments from papers etc. They definitely made an effort to make everything accessible to non-Hungarian speakers.
We spent 2 hours in there, didn't even notice.m the time went so fast. It's very calm in there, with interesting information in Hungarian and in Englisch. It really gives one a feeling of how it was at that time.
Very informative and with a unique design. It really guided us trough the devastating history of the Holocaust but we left knowing that we can now better understand our history. The people were really nice and because it was the last Sunday of the month we came in for free!!
It is a big place that evoke big thoughts. Many visual representation and ample descriptions. I learned a lot about the history. The interior design was just perfect to present this topic. If you have been there, you will understand what I mean. :)
