What to expect

This product is a skip-the-line entrance ticket to the House of terror. An English-speaking tour guide will wait for you in front of the building and give you your ticket. After entrance you will visit the museum on your own.

The House of Terror was built in memory of the victims of the fascist and communist dictatorships in Hungary. Learn more about the dark events that took place here at the helm of the Hungarian secret police. Gain a better understanding from Hungary's complex political background through the exhibits focusing on the brutality of Communist dictatorship in the 1950s.

The building was once the seat of AVO (State Protection Authority). See the main interrogation and torture chamber of the building, which remained untouched since the 1950s despite the multiple reconstructions of the building. See many documents of the life and economy of the period: the food quota ticket system, the practice of compulsory deliveries and terror against the peasantry. The exhibition leads you to the office room of the dreaded director of the State Protection Authority, with his original desk restored. Go through the "Justice room" to see the process of politically organised show trials against people who were declared enemies of the regime.

The last part of the exhibition is about the 1956 national revolution against Soviet occupation and Communist rule, and its consequences, the retaliation and mass emigration. Finally, you will see the Hall of Tears commemorating all of the victims, the Perpetrators' Wall and a memorial of the Soviet troops leaving Hungary in 1991.
