About
The final resting place for fallen Communist statues, including those of Lenin, Marx and Engels, plus memorial plaques that were removed after the downfall of the Communist regime. Soviet model made gigantic sculptures from the Cold War, from behind the Iron Curtain. Gigantism, waving comrades, Stalin’s boots, and the Red Army soldiers. The barrack-documentary explains the political secret service.

You can reach Memento Park by public transit although it will take a while. It is worth visiting for a “Back to the USSR” experience. The entry for adults is 1800 HUF and you could probably tour all of the Soviet-era statues in about 30 minutes. There is also a small museum outbuilding with an exhibit of material on the fall of Soviet dominance. That exhibit is in a dark area and needs better lighting.

The place is just amazing, and Judit's passion for the Park and statues is simply contagious. I can't thank her enough for being such a wonderful host and providing so many useful information about the Park's design and contemporary uses. I would recommend to anyone coming to Budapest to just go there and experience the magnitude of the communist propaganda.

Joined the 11am tour minibus outside the Ritz , spent 90 minutes in the park in total.
Quite a few monuments to see and also an exhibition room with english translations and a small documentary showing.

The statues have no English descriptions so either buy / bring a guide book or pay extra to join the English guided tour.

Guided tour quite good, went over about 2/3 of the statues on site and you have half hour left to roam about yourselves before the tour bus goes back to the hotel.

Can easily spend 2+ hours there to go over Everything. Getting there by public transit is not the most convenient.

Memento park is a beautiful park: it's a home to a number of gigantic statues, and other communist monuments. It is spacious, the statues are fascinating. There is a bunker, which houses a number of extremely unsettling statues of Lenin (and one Stalin). There also is a barrack which shows the communist history of Hungary.
The staff is fluent in English, very friendly and helpful!

You hear of communism being massive and how the world changed when it fell...Honestly the amount of exhibits and statues on offer here was pitiful. It was a £20 taxi ride each way miles from the city. Very dissapointing. I was expecting it to be a little bigger. Photos online make it look huge and more interesting.

We had a guided tour of Memento Park with Judit and it was fantastic - so interesting and informative. She's a great guide, passionate about her subject and very knowledgeable about Hungary's history. We, and our young adult children, were really glad we visited and would highly recommend a tour. It was easy to book our visit and also to get there on Budapest's fantastic transport system.

This park is quite interesting to see (and also to get to). The lady at the entrance was extremely kind and recommended us to buy an English booklet with further information, which was quite helpful to know more about the statues. Especially the large statues are impressive, and it was also fun to sit in the Trabant car. It is true though that it doesn't necessarily have to take much time for the full experience. Visiting the park and learning about the communist era could nevertheless be considered important to commemorate a part of Hungary's 20th century past. Greetings from The Netherlands!

Overpriced and a trek to get to. You need to buy a guidebook to really understand the statues. They do student discount but if you don’t find you card in time there are no refunds! Really not worth the travel time to get there and back unless you are fanatical about soviet era statues. Plenty of better places across this part of Europe.

Excellent guided tour of the open-air museum. Judit was our tour guide, who was warm and friendly throughout the guided tour. Highly recommend the tour, cost 5,500 HUF (worth every forint).

Judit delivered an excellent insight into the Communist life and kept the tour interesting.
