A must-go even you’re not that much interested at history. A place brings education. I was fascinated, touched, impressed, and inspired. Hope the world would be forever peace, hope everyone can have the freedom and the kind of life that he/she wants. Detail: price for 3000ft, audio guide 1500ft, reduce price only for European citizen under 26y.
Impressive museum about the different regimes Hungary has suffered under. The exhibition was nicely laid out but at one point there is a lift and if it's very busy you either need to wait for a pretty long time or walk all the way back to the basement (and back through the exhibit) and then reveserse walk through the last bit of the exhibit and then walk back again, so just keep that in mind.
Great experience, whole thing takes roughly two hours but it is well worth the 5 euros, well maintained. Discount for European passports. If you have more than 2 days in Budapest worth a visit.
Sad but absolutely amazing. If you are in Budapest, this is a must see. It is so important to be educated and to honor the lives lost to socialism and communism. It is very moving with great, informational exhibits. I will not forget my visit.
Museum is very interesting and has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, most signs are in Hungarian so you don’t actually know what each room shows. I’d recommend getting the audio guide!
