This museum of spying and atrocities, in what was once the headquarters of the dreaded ÁVH secret police, always attracts a crowd. While the shock value tends to obscure the depth of coverage, the wall of victims' photos speaks volumes, highlighting the friction and paranoia of the deeply scarring Stalinist regime.
This museum focuses on the crimes and atrocities committed by both Hungary's fascist and Stalinist regimes but the latter, particularly the years after WWII leading up to the 1956 Uprising, gets the most attention. The tank in the central courtyard is a jarring introduction but most disturbing are the reconstructed prison cells and the final Perpetrators' Gallery, featuring photographs of the turncoats, spies, torturers and 'cogs-in-the-wheel' responsible for these crimes.
