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.

“A hidden gem - truly worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

We were a group of 6 college kids - some who wanted to dive into Holocaust history and some who were a little more hesitant about it. This was the perfect happy medium. It was not graphic, but it made some of the really important pieces of the Holocaust much more real. This did not take too long and was really enjoyable for all of us.

A must see regardless of your religion. Studied in school but this brings you to reality. A moving memorial.

“Must visit for any visitor to Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

We took the neighborhood tour which was very informative and interesting. This enabled us to find a good kosher restaurant for lunch, and excellent pastries for snacking. The tour of the center was also excellent: great historical perspectives, sad stories and hopeful wishes for Hungarian Jews.

“Very moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

All the names of the Hungarian Jews who were killed are on the walls in the court yard. This is very moving. The museum is well laid out and the stories from real people very moving.
