House Of Terror, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review
This is a really well thought out museum. Being housed in the original building used by the various oppressive authorities and devoting different halls to different topics and the amazing reconstruction of the basement cells and terror apparatus make for a memorable visit. You cannot come away untouched nor without learning much interesting and important history. The combination of audio visual and lighting as well as abundant authentic artifacts create the relevant atmosphere. Entry price is very reasonable at 2000HUF. Cafe, bookshop and toilets on site.
Very interesting and well made museum which details the life and suffering of the Hungarian people under two oppressive regimes. Some may feel that the images and cell exhibits are too much, however it is important to see the reality of these things. Definitely an important thing to see while in Budapest. Get there early as the line can be extremely long during the day. Added 02/11/17: Get the audio guide, the museum is much better with it, and many complain that the experience is confusing and poor without it. The English guide is actually pretty well done.
Not worth the visit, unless you pay extra for a video/Audio Guide, which is expensive. The staff say there are text to read off walls at the exhibitions. When you actual go in the museum, there are paper sheets with essay style literature which take ages to reading and not engaging and annoying. Especially, when you are a tourist and on holiday. as you want quick, simple, easy to read and understand literature to understand the subject. Waste of money and takes to long to read and understand, get the Audio guide which is 5 Euros extra i think to hire. i forgot ho much i paid. Nice building, Also at the paying desk there is a sign stating no complaints after visiting because customer are unhappy with the experience and price and the fact you have to read essay.
I would recommend going as early as possible. The rooms are small and when they get crowded they take away from the experience. Everything on the audio guide is printed on paper in each room. The audio and paper have lots of historical details. I would have preferred to have no audio and read at my own pace because it was sometimes difficult to understand just by listening.
Not a fan of museums, but it was quite interesting. It have real t-52 (I think) tank. Unique roof casts shadow to the ground and walls. Also a peace of Berlin Wall could be found there.
