  • This is a grand display to remind visitors to never forget that man has an evil streak that attacks other people who are different from them. The Jews and Gypsies were both targets of the atrocities l...  more »
  • Nice museum with the story of her Jewish culture and the war time. There was sometimes very nasty images which made a great impression, there is nothing left out.

  • In our case not locate guided tours on the website or on the Internet (stating that I read on tripadvisor to comment that says it was with Guide) by which opted to go to the memorial center directly. At reception of the Centre they let us pass to the exhibition almost without checking our tickets. Upon entering I saw that the exhibition had numbering to follow it with audio so I went to apply for them and they showed me that the system did not work. For this reason the exhibition became go reading posters in English and videos subtitled in English. The exhibition is 90% pictures and videos of the Holocaust in Hungary and is tired to see it in this format. Some curious elements such as reproductions of posters of the era are in Hungarian, so pass by them without knowing it. Part of the photos are the characters or moments in history and without more context information can not locate them. In short, with guide or audio guide you can have meaning. To visit in these conditions I do not advise it. It seems a pity.
