We were interested in this tour as one of our party is a nurse and one works in the nuclear industry. We both loved it! Our guide was very informative and spoke excellent English. The wax models were extremely realistic and brought the scenes to life. We found the tour both harrowing and humbling. Would highly recommend going here. My only criticism is the tour behind us was close at times so if you ended up at the back of the group you could hear what their guide was saying were unable to hear your own guide so stay up front.

At first we weren't sure why they insisted that it was only a guided tour (we like to explore places ourselves), however, we did discover rather quickly, that it is because the Hospital In The Rock is a labyrinth, anyone would get lost. Timi, our guide was fantastic and very informative, always happy to answer questions throughout the hour long tour. Great for those that love their communist nostalgia.

My son and I found this one-hour tour of the Hospital in the Rock to be the best of museum visits we had in Budapest (disclosure that we did not end up getting to many museums). What a fascinating story of labyrinths that were connected and turned into a hospital that went into dormancy after WWII and then came into use again to aid the Freedom Fighters in 1956 and then was re purposed into a nuclear bunker in the 1960s cold war era. I had honestly never been to a WWII museum from the Axis viewpoint before...always visited museums in Allied countries. Our guide took a very balanced approach and very much touched on the price Hungary paid for being on the wrong side of history. I liked the narrative arc of the museums message and my 15 year old sone and I both found the experience thought-provoking and interesting. The physical layout occasionally made it hard to hear the tour guide, so keep to the front or middle if you are in a group of more than 15 people. English tours run on the hour so plan ahead to get there about 15 minutes before an hour.

Really enjoyed our tour here. A fascinating place with a great tour guide. It’s a bit of a climb to get there but the area around the museum is beautiful and very clean and new with plenty of restaurants and shops and fantastic views of the city and river.
