By far and above one of the must see exhibits in any trip to Budapest, a really incredible collection of history, preserved and displayed in just the right way. Would recommend visiting the Budapest Museum as well/before, to get a grasp of context, but could very easily be enjoyed on its own. Guide book a must.

I agree with other reviewers-- adjust your expectations that this is essentially a field with random statues and sculptures from Hungary's Communist era, and you will appreciate it for what it is worth. 1500 HUF (about $5USD/5E) admission per person. We were not offered a written guide with explanations to the numbered statues, but we saw others with them. I... More

Really interesting park containing statues etc from soviet times, very enlightened they they were moved to here and not just destroyed. It's a small park, easily reached on public transport ( metro and bus) and enjoyable for an hour. The ticket desk sells a guide, and the odd but if memorabilia. Well worth an excursion.

It's nothing but a yard full of statues. If you're into Soviet history or curious enough to be self motivated, it's a great place, but if you only having a passing interest, it's not worth it. The building with the newspapers, documentary, etc are ok, but nothing to write home about and the statues are just that-statues without explanation. For... More

This is slightly off the beaten path, but really, just a 10-15 minute bus ride from the central area of town. Their website has all the information you need to get there and is quite humourous! The folks who run the place have quite the sense of humour in general. In addition to the enormous statues you can look at,... More

Don't expect too much, but there are some interesting statues from the communist era. It is worth a visit, but it is not a must see I admit. There are only a few statues there, I thought the park is bigger, but it was a bit of a disappointment. If you never experienced communism, you can't appreciate these statues either.... More

Despite having only 41 statues within the park, Memento Park definitely would leave you with a deeper insight about the Soviet past of Hungary and each statue has a story behind it (I'd definitely ask you to purchase the guide). Another interesting point to note is the central patch of grass has a Soviet star pattern in the middle. Also,... More

After the fall of the communist system in 1989, all these statues were moved to the outskirts of the city so it’s not the sort of place you’ll come across accidently! However it’s worth a visit for its curiosity value if you have time – it took us about three hours altogether. Cheapest way to reach it from the centre... More

We booked ahead for the bus and guided tour, which saved money. The bus picked us up on time and we had a pleasant ride out of the city. Our guide was very interesting, telling stories of the statues and their significance. She also had information about the revolution. My husband had been longing to see an old Russian car... More

A graveyard for previously heroic Communist statues; nice idea, but I would have appreciated a bit more advice about individual statues (their locations, histories, significance, etc.). In an outer Buda suburb, so slightly tedious to get there by Metro and then bus, so this is not a good choice if you are pressed for time. Stalin's boots are located here... More
