  • Best holocaust exhibit I have been to. Some very graphic bits, but informative. Staff were friendly and we left feeling like we'd learnt and grown as people.
  • A place you have to visit. Very impressive.
  • I really cannot say if I like it or dislike it. It was good, it was bad.. I'm neutral. It's a must see and know information, but in my opinion, not very well presented.
  • It was an OK museum, very modern and trying to be 'edgy'
  • A unique way to tell the story of the Holocaust, and the specifics of the Hungarian Jewish community. Very brave way to discuss the responsibility of the Hungarian authorities during the war.
