If you're in Budapest this is a must!
It's about the terror regimes that Hungary has been under during the 20th century but is also an interesting introduction to Hungary's history.
Very modern, very big, very interesting and very scary.
The only minus is that it's hard to understand some of the things shown if you don't understand hungarian.
House of Terror!
The House of Terror on Andrissy (sp?) is the best museum I've ever been to!
It's not in the Guide Books because it only opened on October 4th 2002, I only heard of it through word-of-mouth from other travellers.
Located in the old headquarters of the Communist Party (and Nazi Party before them), it is a memorial to the suffering of the Hungarian people from the start of World War 2 to the departure of the last Soviet soldiers in the early 1990s.
Downstairs they still have the old jail cells and torture chambers, including the original furniture, etc - not for those with a weak stomach!
Cost is 3000 Forint, which includes an audio guide in your language. Stronly recommend the audio guide, as most of the museum itself is in Hungarian. The guide sometimes rambles on a bit, but simply move to the next room, and the commentary moves on too.
