  • Good place to go and spend an entertaining hour strolling through its galleries, if you do it from 6 pm, you will do it in complete darkness, lighting up with a candil that facilitates you. It's not an attraction to be afraid, but with the atmosphere you recreate you're in tension (no monsters or anything like that). Highly recommended. It is next to the Fisherman's Bastion a 5-minute walk

  • Interesting and fun exhibition! It's entirely underground and some part of it were no light at all to let you experience walking in the complete darkness. When you get to Dracula stories, the place just get steamy and cold with some creepy exhibit. Recommended go as a group and enjoy the fun of spooky atmosphere. (Watch out your friends who might want to scare you in here)
  • I've been here twice now and honestly couldn't recommend it enough. It's something completely different to do whilst in Budapest. Whether you enjoy history or horror stories it's worth the visit. It costs the equivalent to £8 each and it took between 1-2hrs to walk around (depending if you read everything or not) It's a cold and eerie experience which makes you even forget the time of day so once you return to reality you have a whole new appreciation of your surroundings.
