House Of Terror, Budapest Reviews
Great exhibition you cannot leave unaffected. Eye opening as this part is omitted in Western European history schoolbooks. An absolute must visit when in Budapest and worth five stars. However, as many visitors reviewed already, it could have been so much more, non Hungarians cannot do without the audio tour and this audio is not in sync with the exhibition.
The topic deserve 5 stars unf the execution is overall very poor. Half an hour waiting queue outside, no possibility to buy tickets online, no audio guides available once arrived at the ticket desk, staff could learn how to smile to clients. Inside available the English printed paper at room entrance, no explanation (except Hungarian). Then you arrive at the cellar and not even English paper is available!! Many video documents with English subtitles. Might consider taking example from the Schindler Fabric museum in Krakow to understand how much they could improve.
Amazing museum. By nature, it is a museum of events that many people would like to forget, but I'm glad that it exists. Growing up, my schools didn't spend too much time teaching about the topics covered in the museum, it was more of a small section within a larger chapter. Visiting this museum was a great learning experience. Everything was easy to follow even though I only spoke English.
I went there in the end of the afternoon, and as I expected it, it was too short to completely enjoy it. The museum is very big, with a lot to see. Videos, objects, official documents, a memorial... The atmosphere is kinda gloomy, but it’s part of the visit. I’d suggest planning at least 2 hours to really enjoy your visit and fully understand everything. If you have no knowledge of Hungarian historian and don’t speak Hungarian, they have documents (that you can keep) that tell you everything about the rooms you’re seeing. Too bad they don’t explain what the objects are. A lot of museums make a list, this one doesn’t. On a less positive note, don’t expect the staff to be friendly. The cashier was not nice at all and speaking very fast so I didn’t get all the information. No smile, and she didn’t answer to my hello or « goodbye, thank you. »
House of Terror? It is in fact a history museum talking about the tragic experience of Hungarian people during the Nazi Germany and Soviet Union Communist Party occupation. Many of the rooms tell the stories via TV screen and audio recordings in Hungarian language. You will need an English audio guide to understand what it is about. There lacks sufficient English to tell the stories which are very disappointing. If you do not understand Hungarian and there is no English audio guide available, you would end up knowing very little from the limited subtitles on TV screens and English leaflets. (There are limited numbers of English audio guides and during peak season, you are most likely than not to not getting one. Many rooms tell the stories via TV and audio recording and some has a small number of military equipment or interrogation settings to look at. Two stars is max.
