House of Terror

Budapest is home to one of the most powerful museums in Europe

Illustrating the grim decades of Nazi and Communist repression, from the early 1940s to 1956, the House of Terror is the former headquarters for the secret police of these past governments. Although sombre, the museum is a necessary memorial to Hungarian victims who were tortured, beaten, killed, or starved by members of these brutal and terrifying regimes. Visitors to the House of Terror can take a step back in time alongside the amazing if sinister collection, including original torture rooms and prisons in the basement, discover what conditions were like in a gulag and get a taste of period propaganda.

Getting to the House of Terror: Take the Millennium Underground (M1) to Vörösmarty utca or 10 min. walk from the hotel
