Set in a former synagogue, Holocaust Memorial Center focuses on Holocaust research and education. This institution was established in 1999 and opened to the public in 2004 in the old Pava synagogue outside of the city's Jewish district. Learn about the history of the Holocaust through the state-run museum's permanent and visiting exhibits, as well as its cultural programs. The structure dates to the 1920s but was renovated by architect István Mányi before opening as a museum. Take a guided tour of the memorial center to pay tribute to Hungarian Jews killed during World War II.
