I think there are two attractions with the same name. The one I am reviewing is underground, in Parliament square (Kossuth ter). You may only visit for a short time, or you might stay for quite a while as my family did. There are first hand accounts compiled in videos along with photos, and a timeline to explain the events. There are some interesting audio-visual effects including a 3D tank that comes at you.

My father was in the square when this event took place. I wish he had lived to see this memorial (it only recently opened).

This is an underground exhibition and memorial to those people who died in the 1956 revolution and is located in Parliament square. Did not know a great deal about it so it was very interesting to gain all the detail of what happened. The story is told in a very understandable presentation regardless of language. Well worth visiting.

In front of the Parliament Building is a moving memorial to the people of Hungary who sought freedom in 1956. It is underground and not well marked.

On the grounds of Parliament (to the left of the entrance) you will find 3 simple metal walls with bullet holes and the year 1956 cut into it. This is the entrance to an important memorial - that of the Hungarian Revolution. The memorial is under ground. It is simple but significant and should not be missed. There are slides, movies, interviews and places to just sit and reflect.

I spent about 45 minutes ‘down there’ and found it very interesting. Placed outside parliament on the square where many were killed made it even more poignant. Made you think as you could look at it from different angles knowing what we know now.

One of the most heart-rending episodes of the failed 1956 revolution, an attempt by the Hungarian people to free themselves of the yoke of the Soviet Union, is paid tribute to here, in this solemn underground exhibit, complete with video and many pictures documenting this sad episode. A well designed exhibit in a small underground space. Recommended if you care about people.

Interesting to learn about the failed revolution, and sad to learn that not all of the victims were identified. Didn't take long and was free. Most complete story about the history of communism and its ultimate demise. Recommended.

This underground display is in honor of the ordinary citizens who died near Parliament in October 1956. They had come to hear speeches, but soviets came with tanks and guns. Various first-hand reports are presented along with photos. Visiting this memorial takes only a few minutes, but its message creates a horrified empathy for all Hungarian citizens endured..

Small but thought provoking museum dedicated to the people who died when the army fired out on a peaceful protest against communism in 1950s Hungary. This museum is located underground where the massacre in 1956 happened on the square next to the Parliament building. With short films telling the story from eyewitnesses and people who were directly involved on the day and how it subsequently effected their lives. This is a very small museum which is admission free but only accessible by stairs and can only hold 50 people at any one time.

This is a quiet, low-key "attraction" but you have to see it. The tank that "finds" you and aims its barrel straight at you is very frightening (even for an adult) and the memorial to the dead is desperately moving. Extremely well-conceived and designed all round.
