Concierge.com's insider take:

By no means appreciated by all when it opened, partly due to the word "TERROR" writ huge on the building's facade, this museum sets out to expose the ways and means of two 20th-century systems of oppression that held sway here—right here. From 1937 to 1956, this 1880s neo-Renaissance town house harbored first the ultra-right Arrow Cross Party's HQ, then the offices and interrogation rooms of the Communist secret police. Creepiness has been amplified to the max with re-creations of torture chambers, screenings of propaganda films and survivor interviews, and walls full of coerced "confessions." It's part chamber of horrors, part memorial.

Closed Mondays.
