The House of Terror is a very stylised museum with a big emphasis on video documentaries. It was both very interesting and very crowded - it must be on most people's "to do" list whilst in Budapest! As other reviewers have commented, many of the exhibits are in Hungarian only - we skimmed the English paper information sheets as we... More

Very interesting place to go and get to know better the history behind the last century. There are some creative areas that makes you feel bad and really into the reality.

This is awesome! Very well presented with every room having explanatory leaflets in 2 languages that you take with you as you go around this place that was a Nazi headquarters.Such evil done is incomprehensible!!

The musuem depicts the history of Hungary under Nazi and Soviet rule. It is a dark story and a stark reminder of the horrible things humans can do. However, it is extremely interesting and worth a visit. If you are an EU citizen, take proof of ID for half price entry.

I think the rooftop says it all. Ironic as the Russian embassy is just a little further up the road and I'm sure it hasn't been lost on them too. The exhibition outside is powerful enough to remind us all not to take our freedoms for granted.

Wanted to see a bit of what happened from the 40's to the collapse of the soviet Union. Wont be disappointed as there is a lot of information etc. For a really good Langos (Hungarian fried bread with different toppings) across the street there is a indoor and out door market

The exposition is detailed, well done and rich of audio/video material. I didn' t take the audio guide and I didn't miss it. In every room, there are some A4 flyers with plenty of information on it.

Got it would be more informative. A lot of presentations in only Hungarian language. More art than history. Of course the cellar and torture rooms were so sad

The House of Terror, on Andrassy, took us by surprise. The museum provides an intense and personal experience for visitors--- and leaves us with haunting questions. Very professional and bold, confronting the ugliest times in Hungarian history.... at a time when some of the same questions are being raised again.
