It was incredibly interesting and a very unique experience. I highly recommend it. It was great that the tour lasted an hour so we could get on with our day without it feeling like it consumed the holiday. Really great, emotional displays and an incredibly sad history. Good value for money and an impressive tour with lots to see. It was incredible how many real items were there and seeing the actual machines and items used in real life. The wax figurines were of high quality and tastefully done. The medical helicopter and jeep were excellent surprises. My only criticism is that our tour was off to a bad start because the guide just walked off with the group and left us and no one had said how to access the lockers or what we needed to put in. We were struggling to use them as we needed a Euro but we had HUF only in Notes and the sign at the entrance said no jackets but bags ok but we later realised this meant no coats in the lockers!!! No-one helped us and it was very embarrassing. We had to catch up with the rest of the group inside the underground hospital having missed some of the introduction and the elderly staff member seemed really annoyed with us for not knowing what to do. Two of them just watched us struggle with frustration. As we had booked an English speaking tour, someone should have said this is where you can put your belongings and this is what you need to put in. However, the overall experience saved itself.
Amazing value and such great fun Felt like a child Some of the machines I haven’t seen and played on since I was a kid and it’s not just pinball, there was air guitars, asteroids, Pac-Man as well as hockey etc Loved it Could have spent all night there
Interesting museum, it is a good engaging way to learn about Hungary's tragic history. It's laid out very well with many interesting historical items. It's worth getting the audioguide (although slightly overwhelming sometimes as there is music in the rooms already). A good way to spend 2+ hours.
This is a must-do experience. It’s eye opening and there is a wealth of information available. I really liked that it explored all of the different groups persecuted by the Nazis. Emotive, but reliable exhibitions. The staff are also very friendly!
Really enjoyed our visit here. It starts with a video all about the origins of Unicum and the family, then a little tour including tasting two types of Unicum. Our tour guide was very informative and his English was excellent. The tour ends in the museum with time to look around freely.
I really like the exhibition, the statues are very cool! 🥰 Fanni our receptionist was very nice and helpful! We even bought a small statue from her which was really worth the price! 💥💖🥰 You can get the most unique souvenirs here. I totally recommend going, you can't miss it!
We took a bus out of the city centre out to Memento Park to see this quirky collection of over 40 statutes, busts and plaques from Hungary's communist period. It was really quiet when we visited which meant we were able to really enjoy the place without too many people. I would highly recommend buying the guide to the park so you can read about the monuments that you are looking at. An interesting hour's visit to a fascinating collection and worth the excursion out of the city.
The synagogue was beautiful and the guide very informative. The ghetto almost impossible to read the information as so many people all standing in front. This was January, later in the year must be a nightmare
Good fun and worth going if your in Budapest to pass time. However it ended a lot quicker than expected ( it only took us about 20 minutes to go around the place) so unsure if £8/£9 is worth the price. Definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.
This is a museum with massive trains all over. I was able to see a "fordito korong"-ot that allows the trains to be redirected in a a relatively easy way. When I went to the museum it was the beginning of November, clearly not in season and there was hardly anyone there... The entrance ticket prices stay the same for the seniors, unless they are over 99 years old. (Really? )
