If you have any interest in the history of World War II and the Cold War, you have to see the Terror House. First of all the museum is set in an impressive building on Andrassy Avenue, which is one of the loveliest tree-lined streets in Budapest. During World War II the Nazi-allied Arrow Cross Party used the house as a place of secret imprisonment, interrogation and execution. When the Soviet liberated Budapest, they discovered the Terror House and decided to use it for the same thing. Inside the museum you can see various instruments of oppression, including jail cells and torture implements.Recommended for:

The House of Terror is a thought-provoking and somewhat disturbing museum. It contains exhibits related to the fascist and communist dictatorial regimes in 20th century Hungary and is also a memorial to the victims of these regimes, including those detained, interrogated, tortured or killed in the building.Recommended for:

Дом террора — музей на проспекте Андраши в Будапеште, располагается в здании бывшего Управления государственной безопасности Венгрии и посвящён трагическим периодам тоталитарной истории Венгрии. В здании, построенном в 1880 году по проекту архитектора Адольфа Фести, в послевоенной Венгрии находилась тюрьма, где, подвергались пыткам противники режима.

Very interesting museum detailing the terrors of the political police, first under the Arrow Cross (Nazi) leadership during WWII, and then under the Soviets. There are English language pamphlets in each hall, but not all of the displays have translated plaques to say what they are. Still, the basement jail cells and torture areas speak for themselves.
