We used public transport metro 4 and bus 150 with no bother. An interesting place for a wander about. The grounds could do with a bit maintenance

We caught the bus connected to Memento Park from a main square in Budapest. We boarded at 11:00, and they returned us by 13:30. With the 20-30 minute drive that allowed 1.5 hours at the park, which is plenty of time. We participated in the...More

If you go to Budapest, this Museum is a must see. Even if the weather is not perfect, you still can enjoy this outdoor museum. They also screen a film, and have an indoor exhibition. The experience of seeing these statues in real life is...More

Particularly if you are a history buff, this is an excellent exhibit. These are original statues from the Soviet occupied era in Hungary, celebrating Stalin (Enormous), Lenin and others. It is larger than I expected. Make sure to get a guide book. Ample free parking...More

It's not easy to get to but the collection of Communist statues is worth the trip. Get the guide book at the entrance and walk around. Other cities/ countries have destroyed these kind of statues but seeing them in this park setting is a jarring...More

Rather than destroying all those gargantuan Soviet era statues after the fall of Communism, the Hungarian authorities collected a number of them here and they really are worth seeing. The park is laid out with interesting symbolism that is explained in the guide book and...More

This is a ways out of town, but definitely worth the visit. We went in the late afternoon, and practically had the park to ourselves. It was fascinating to see this remnant of Communist history.

We used the minibus transfer company to get there. It's called the Red Star Tour half way price between taxi and public transport. The daily visit leaves Deac square opposite the Ritz Carlton Hotel at 11 am. Buy tickets on the bus or alternatively book...More

Don't leave Budapest without a visit to Memento Park. Fair play to the modern Hungarian regime for avoiding the temptation to trash these monuments to Communism. The trade-off is that they are now housed miles from the city centre, but don't let that put you...More

I honestly don't remember for sure - I know we didn't have any florins so we either paid by credit card or used euros. Many of the Hungarian sites are very kind to accept euros so you don't have to get florins for a short... More

Best to look at the webpage of Memento Park, but I would think that the bus will be running, possibly at a lower frequency because of the holidays.
