An excellent insight into the history of Hungary. Harrowing testimonies from people who expetienced the cruelty of the communist regime. It was very busy so arrive early.

We decided to make a visit here and very interesting it was too, my friend and I are both recently retired and so we got a reduced entry. There is literature in each section for you to take home as we did and it makes...More

Give yourself time to listen to the videos in each room. Nazism and communism were harrowing experiences for the people who lived through them. The basement rooms where people were tortured and killed are stark. A very well designed museum that makes you ponder on...More

Weekend visit with a 30 minute queue (one person taking payment). There is a huge amount of detail and information available, some of it truly shocking and made all the more personal through the recollections of those involved. We spent about 2-3 hours walking through...More

If there was more signs in English it would've been much better, audio guides were available but at an extra cost but these were tablets hung around the neck which I felt would distract from the exhibits. Just a few signs in English to explain...More

Good new Museum apart from the painfully slow entrance process but I guess this manages the amount of people in the museum. We enjoyed it - amazing history and video clips through the journey but some may find it not very hard hitting. The name...More

As others have said before me, this museum isn't all the well organised. It's quite hard to work out were to start etc. We had one audio system but which did help and is needed to understand what is happening!! Useful to bring own headphones....More

One of the best exhibitions I've ever seen. Modern, interesting for international tourists, with a few details that will stay in your mind (a carpet with the map - wow, it makes the things more realistic). Good place to spend a rainy day, for sure.

I went early on a Sunday morning as I had only an hour to spare. Even before opening there was a short queue. Later I saw the queue becoming quite long. The museum can become quite cramped under such conditions. While a... More

I would say that an hour would be the very minimum. Two to three hours could easily be spent seeing everything there is to see.
