In this museum take your time and reas the brochures that they offer in English. Also I would recommend getting the earphones if you are a history junkie.

This is the first place I've ever seen in my life that actually report the story for what it is. The information aren't affected by any political leaning and this make this place unique and very interesting

Like other historical sites where abuses have occurred, the House of Terror acts as a memorial and a museum chronicling the atrocities committed by Fascist and Communist authorities alike. This is apparent from the black metal plating that borders the top of the House of...More

Great lack of original artifacts. The museum consist of a series of tv screens (only some with English subtitles) that you stand in line and watch. Also they probably felt that the TVs did not convey enough information to the visitors, so when changing “rooms”...More

While this place is likely great if you can read Hungarian, the info in English is either not there or very, very lengthy. We did visit on night of the museum so maybe it would be better on a regular day.
