Overview

The Holocaust Memorial Center is a national institution established by the Government in 1999. In 2002, it decided to construct the building of the Center in Pava Street, outside of the traditional Jewish quarter, further emphasizing its national character.The Holocaust Memorial Center is one of the few institutions in the world, established by the state, that focuses entirely on Holocaust research and education.The visitors are welcomed into a unique space that was named as the most impressive in Budapest, beside the city's panorama itself by Frank Owen Gehry, one of the leading architects in our time. The modern building is organically linked to the Pava Street Synagogue, an authentic venue that once used to be the second largest site for Jewish worship in Budapest.The Institution is a center for scientific research education and culture. It welcomes visitors with interactive permanent and special periodic exhibitions, experience-based museum pedagogical programs and cultural performances. Guided tours are available in five languages and special, thematically focused tours are offered regularly. A bookshop and a cozy coffee shop contribute to a memorable visit.

ホロコースト博物館。ここは「地球の歩き方」には出ていない。 地下鉄3号線のColvin Negyed駅が最寄り。4つ先のCava通りを入ると見えてきます。 入場料は1400HFです。内部は撮影禁止です。 映像と写真がほとんどですが、ナチスの行為を映した映像は見ておく必要があるでしょう。 中にはユダヤ教の教会もあります。 館内は新しく、キレイですよ。図書館も併設されています(けど、私には読めない^^;;)。 時代の証人として重要だと思います。是非どうぞ。 Holocaust Museum. Here it is not out to "walk the way of the earth". The nearest Metro Line 3 of Colvin Negyed station. Four ahead you will see upon entering the Cava street. Admission is 1400HF. Inside...More

Obviously a very sad history. The museum was laid out well, plenty of information, an eye opener, some pictures very graphic, but necessary to show just how atrocious the Jews and gypsies were treated across Europe under Hitler's rule.

Very understated but informative museum about the Hungarian involvement in the holocaust- and the truth about both parties involved. It is not a concentration camp but the figures are shocking! Cheap and worth a visit

There are still many without sufficient knowledge about the events during WW2. Hungarian Jewry was annihilated during a short time in 1944, but signs were to be seen many years before. The events preceding and under the Holocaust are shown both on a personal and...More

Unless they are particularly sensitive they should be fine there are one or too disturbing photos but it is more about people's stories than anything else
