The true face of war and the value of peace: this is what the Hospital in the Rock wants to show you
Plunge into the bloodcurdling and thrilling world of war medicine and civil defence! Explore the exhibition, which covers over 2,000 square metres. The Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum is located in the heart of Budapest, under Buda Castle. Its claim to fame is having functioned as an emergency facility during the Second World War and the 1956 revolution, when the Hungarian people revolted against the Stalinist dictatorship. With the original furniture, hospital equipment and more than 200 lifelike wax figures, we guarantee you’ll have a realistic and unforgettable experience.
Did you know that the hospital was classified as top secret in the early 1950s? The institution was only able to rid itself of its "top secret facility" classification in 2002. A few years later, it finally opened its doors to the general public. Since then, the purpose of the Hospital in the Rock has been to show the true face of war and highlight the value of peace, and to faithfully commemorate the “everyday heroes” conscientiously serving their fellow human beings, even during the most difficult times.
