Other than having to pay to get in and have a look, this place is an interesting visit and had some tours and other things to offer tourists. We did not do any of it, though, just walked around the outside and got some good pictures. It is close to many other places to see in Budapest, so don't miss out if you are walking around downtown.

It was the first time to see and got inside a synagogue. It was amazing! It also has memorial for the holocaust victims. A good way to learn some history.

It was closed to the public(as it was a religious day) on the day we wanted to visit so we could only look at the outside.

Although the synagogue itself was very impressive, the signage was very poor, with several people like ourselves wondering where the entrance was.
