Expert review of House of Terror
The imposing apartment at Andrássy út 60 looks much like any other on Budapest’s main boulevard. However, its respectable façade masks a dark history. Agents of successive terror regimes based their headquarters behind its walls during the 20th century – first the Hungarian Nazis in 1944 and after that the communist secret police. It was a place of interrogation, torture and execution until the 1956 Uprising. Today it hosts a moving exhibition – something of a mixture between museum, memorial and gallery space – that uses videos and photographs to tell the story of those years.
Entrance 1,800 forints (adults), 900 forints (EU citizens aged 6–26 and 62–70), free (disabled visitors, EU citizens over 70).
