The museum, along with the entire building, has now become one of Hungary’s most important historical monuments. The building is unmistakable, because with the help of letters cut out from the metal frame on the roof, the sunlight itself paints the heavy word on the Neo-Renaissance façade: TERROR. The shadow projected on the building's past thus becomes visible from afar. The museum’s shocking permanent exhibition reveals the atrocities and victims of the dictatorships in Hungary, including those who were detained, tortured and murdered in this very building. In the interactive exhibition, you can learn about and understand Hungarian history more closely.
