My teenage son and I almost didn't go to this museum because it didn't sound like a real museum. It was! It had so much interesting information in the form of videos. It was incredible to hear and see real people talking about their horrific experiences. It was a treasure trove of victims' voices of the violence of World War II.

It was amazing seeing the museum of terror however we had to wait in a massive queue.. Took is 40 minutes to wait, once we got to the till we got told we only had 40 minutes till the closing and had to look around very quickly! I recommend going early in the morning.

Why this is rated this high on tripadvisor, I truly don't understand.
Personally, I don't think the exibition honours the dead nor those left behind.

When we arrived we were met by an extremely rude staff, and when we entered the museum we found that 2/3rds of the exibition consists of flatscreens with running video, which displays what you could just as easily have found on YouTube. Also, since these videos are often quite loud, it is waste of money to buy the audioguide headset experience, as you can't hear it properly anyhow. The "preserved" basement consist of empty rooms, which looks like any other old basement.

My recommendation: Save you money on this one, and visit a real museum instead.

If you dont speak/read Hungarian, don't bother. Also, if you are familiar with WW1/2 history, don't go. If you want to witness Hungarians feel bad about siding with Germany during WW2? Then this is the place for you.

On a personal note, I am a touch claustrophobic. This place made me panicky and uncomfortable the whole time. Will advise people to avoid.

A museum that highlights the nazi and soviet occupation of Hungary. Very informative. The guided tour is extra 1500 forint but worth every bit of it. You get a tablet with additional information on items in the rooms. If you really can't afford it there is information in each room that you can take for free. Discounts for students and young person available also!
