The park does not have as many statues as we expected. There are about half a dozen that are really interesting. The entrance fee is 1500 HUF, but it is not easy to get to the place which is 10km away from Gellert Hill. So...More

Very niche, but if you’re into this kind of history, this is really cool! It’s a very inexpensive admission, quite a bit more expensive if you take their bus. We just took a cab, had him wait, and still saved money. The park is full...More

Memento Park is some 20 km out of Budapest and is not well serviced by public transport, but once you get there it is well worth the effort. For about A$100 our hotel concierge arranged for a taxi to take us out there, wait about...More

The park is a great visit while in Budapest. You can reach the park easily on the public bus, 101E I believe. The admission price was fair and includes the statue park and the exhibit hall outside the gates. It was very informative to us...More

Memento Park tells an important part of Hungary’s history, from WWII to 1989. The only monument remaining in Budapest to the Soviets is in Liberty Square and memorializes the approximately 300,000 Soviets who died liberating the city from Nazi occupation. The other monuments were removed...More

Best to look at the webpage of Memento Park, but I would think that the bus will be running, possibly at a lower frequency because of the holidays.
