The House of Terror Museum also awaits you with its permanent and temporary exhibitions in the heart of Budapest, on Andrássy Avenue.
Our permanent exhibition includes four levels: basement, ground floor, first and second floors. Our visitors can see contemporary objects, furnished cellar murals, all with spectacular elements from the modern technology that make the exhibition more lifelike and creepy.
The cellars of a former cellar prison in the basement reveal the shattering, fatal human reality in the eyes of those interested. As we descend into the basement with the elevator, in a small film, the method of the cruel execution was revealed by a neutral person, neutral in its terrifying simplicity. When the movie finishes, the elevator stops and arrives in the basement - here the dramatic silence becomes almost tactless, the space and time around us disappear.
The ground floor rooms, as well as the staircase and the inner courtyard, do not belong to the tightly-presented exhibition space, but can be seen as unalterable parts of the museum at the exhibition. The premises on the first-floor showcase collective pursuits following the Second World War, illustrating the process of migration and deportation.
The permanent exhibit of the House of Terror Museum begins on the second floor, where there are eight exhibition rooms and one showroom. Through these chapters we can follow the chronological order of the total dictatorships in Hungary.
During our periodical exhibitions, we always try to present a topic that is directly related to the Terror House. The 1956 Hungarian Revolution and War of Independence are just one of these, yet objects and memories left over from this era are one of the foundations of our periodical exhibitions.

With the theme, design, and atmosphere of the museum, it seeks to preserve the past and link it with the memory of commemorating the victims of bloody decades. Using the technological innovations of modern times, it brings even closer to its visitors to the 20th century. century Hungarian history.
