Owner description: The Holocaust Memorial Center is a national institution established by the Government in 1999. In 2002, it decided to construct the building of the Center in Pava Street, outside of the traditional Jewish quarter, further emphasizing its national character.The Holocaust Memorial Center is one of the few institutions in the world, established by the state, that focuses entirely on Holocaust research and education.The visitors are welcomed into a unique space that was named as the most impressive in Budapest, beside the city's panorama itself by Frank Owen Gehry, one of the leading architects in our time. The modern building is organically linked to the Pava Street Synagogue, an authentic venue that once used to be the second largest site for Jewish worship in Budapest.The Institution is a center for scientific research education and culture. It welcomes visitors with interactive permanent and special periodic exhibitions, experience-based museum pedagogical programs and cultural performances. Guided tours are available in five languages and special, thematically focused tours are offered regularly. A bookshop and a cozy coffee shop contribute to a memorable visit.

As always a very sobering place i have visited memorials all over the world and i am never shocked by the thought and care taken by the designers a place to sit and think.

It is a modern and well designed museum . Very sad and gives you a perspective of the cruelty under which thousands of hungarians jews were treated .

Very interesting to learn more about this countries history. Be prepared to be shocked, parts of the tour are a bit harrowing.

It is quite moving. You enter an area where you hear trains and footsteps and you walk through a narrow, dim lit corridor. The museum explains the holocaust in a very interesting way. You leave feeling drained.
