"It is a House of Terror" Terror Haza - Terror Museum Tip by MLW20

Terror Haza - Terror Museum, Budapest: 35 reviews and 67 photos


The House of Terror is a good place to visit to get an understanding of what life was like under communism.

This building was the headquarters for the Arrow Cross-Hungarian Nazis and the AVO/AVH-communist terror organizations.

In the basement you can see the cells that the captors had to live in.

They say that "this museum commemorates the victims of terror , but also reminds us of the awful acts of the terrorist dictatorships"

There are lots of good, informative fliers that you can read about the rooms you pass through. I heard that the audioguide goes into to much detail and is not necessary.
