Well worth a visit to see some of the history of Budapest under German then soviet occupation. They were not very nice times to be Hungarian! Plenty to view, suggest pay the extra for the earphones as the notices were sporadic and some exhibits I had no information on at all. However plenty of friendly staff and interactive items to...

Spent a couple of hours in the museum. We didn't buy the additional language guide and missed out on a lot of information. Which i now afterwards regret.

spent 2.5 hours here but could spent longer if had the time. used the audio guides which gave a really good details together with the displays. came away with a real sense of understanding the history of Budapest in the 20th Century and the 'terror' of living through communism and Nazi rule and the cruelty of 'government'. don't hesitate -...

The place itself was worth the visit with a rich history told and presented in an effective manner that leaves an impact. The staff however gave us an unpleasant start to our trip. We requested for 2 adults tickets and 1 audioguide. However, the cashier or receptionist, shown in the picture below, keyed in 2 adults and 2 audioguides. When... More

An otherwise fantastic sight that is spoiled by a horrible experience at the ticketing counter. I was at the museum at around 10am in the morning. There was a brunette and a blonde, I was served by the blonde (please see picture). My sister specifically asked for 2 tickets and 1 (one) audio guide but the price of the tickets... More

Puts into perspective the impact of a nazi govt and then stalinism on the people of Hungary. Told very well through audio and visual guides.

We left the House of Terror until the last of our 4 day break. It would have orientated us better in understanding Hungary if we went there earlier. The address is ordinary '60 Andrassy St' but the place is extraordinary. Comparing the relatively recent sad & brutal history of Hungary with the fine city that is Budapest shows the resilience...
