This museum has a very powerful message and is well thought out. Some of the film's shown are quite shocking but they need to be shown. This is definitely worth a visit and is worth the admission price which is very reasonable

Very sad place and difficult to rate in an 'enjoyment' perspective, it's a very sobering experience to walk around the names of those who were taken. From what I can gather there is an extensive archive of victims which can be researched to help families find lost relatives and find information about them. Not being Jewish myself I didn't deem it appropriate to enter the archives, I have no business just to gawk at these poor lost souls but certainly left a small donation to help maintain and run this establishment which honours victims of the holocaust and support their families today. May god bless you all.

Holocaust Memorial Center is a national institution established by the Government in 1999. In 2002, it decided to construct the building of the Center in Páva Street, outside of the traditional Jewish quarter, further emphasizing its national character. The Holocaust Memorial Center focuses entirely on Holocaust research and education. The visitors are welcomed into a unique space that was named as the most impressive in Budapest, beside the city’s panorama itself by Frank Owen Gehry, one of the leading architects in our time. The modern building is organically linked to the Páva Street Synagogue, an authentic venue that once used to be the second largest site for Jewish worship in Budapest. The Institution is a center for scientific research education and culture. It welcomes visitors with interactive permanent and special periodic exhibitions, experience-based museum pedagogical programs and cultural performances. Guided tours are available in five languages and special, thematically focused tours are offered regularly. A bookshop and a cozy coffee shop contribute to a memorable visit. A toilet is also available for visitors.

Very informative and a 100% recommended visit if you're in Budapest. Important knowledge about the atrocity of holocaust and Nazism is exposed. Explanations are also in English.
