    An hour that flies by!

    I have visited this museum twice now. I love that it brings the scenes to life with the waxworks. It's good to appreciate the importance of this place as a hospital in multiple wars.

    Tour is guided, enter with a tour once an hour and takes an hour. Can be a little cold but we were fine in our summer outfits.

    Nice traditional bulding, an interesting tour with fancy chocolates. We came with a gift coupon, took part with a group of 15-20 people. It was wholesome. Recommended!

    Once you locate and enter the memorial, you realise how quiet it is. Despite being close to busy roads and restaurants, there is peaceful feel to the place. The information throughout is translated from Hungarian into English, and you can use your smartphone for additional audio guides (if you have QR code and Internet enabled). It's a harrowing place to visit, but important in history. The synagogue situated in the building is spectacular.

    A short walk along the hillside and this wonderful building appears... And it is very popular, so many people taking photos. Plus, it offers wonderful views to the river and across it...

    Away from the city centre and all of its wonderful attractions, this place was a real surprise and very much worth a visit... Plus, the spectacular castle is just across the road...

    The magic was definitely real and the security guard is adorable. The collection itself was impressive and informative for a new Houdini fan like myself :) Highly recommend visiting if on the Buda side of Budapest!!

    Not what I expected but still very worthwhile and something that all visitors must see. Educational, thought provoking and historical. Tip: Get a taxi there (6500HUF) and ask them to pick you up after 90mins.

    Nice gallery with cool sculptures, kind staff, free. Pictures were allowed as well. Worth a visit even if you only spend 15 minutes there

    It is a huge and impressive building. A lot of historic monuments and findings. So be aware that it will take a long time to walk around all of it. Down sides were that the toilet facilities were a bit outdated.

    This was easily one of my favorite experiences in Budapest! My 21 yr old daughter also really enjoyed it. Following Hungarian history through the lens of this one family was very interesting and accessible. The museum was well laid-out and everything translated to English (sorry, I can't remember if there were other languages as well)

    We had a hilarious time with their green-screen instant Unicum postcard.

    The tram ride out was fun and easy, with maybe a 5 minute walk to the place.
    There is one English tour a day but we were there earlier and were fine without the tour.

    I wish there was a book of Unicum advertising. I'd buy it in an instant!

    Whilst I found this museum to be very nicely presented, the exhibit rooms really are excellent, I also found that there was a lot of material that was not in English and so my level of enjoyment, understanding and educational value was diminished somewhat. The basement prison cell areas were eye opening and I loved the fact they had an actual Soviet T54 tank used in the repression of the brief 1956 revolution parked in the museum. The admission ticket price for an adult from the UK (non-EU) was 3000 Ft (GB£6.50), which I think was worth it. A great place to spent a hour or two on a rainy day.

    It is not very large so doable and you will see and learn. I was amazed that some swords were out to see/touch.
