Museum of Contemporary Arts
The museum which is also known as Ludwig Museum is located at the Lágymányosi Bridge in one of the most exclusive buildings in the capital city. The museum has some contemporary exhibitions with pictures of Picasso, Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns.
The Hall of Arts („Műcsarnok”)
The Hall of Arts is located on the right side of the fascinating Heroes’ Square. The museum presents the largest exhibition of contemporary art in Hungary. The museum does not have an own collection, but its frequently changing exhibitions encompass all the fluctuations of worldwide art.
After the changing of the political system in Hungary, 1989, all the statues of the communist dictatorship were taken off the streets, and eventually relocated to the Statue Park, the first outside museum of communist statues in the world. Here you can meet the statues of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Ostapenko, Dimitrov, the Soviet Soldier, the Martyrs of Communism and many others.
Museum of Terror
In the Museum of Terror you can follow more than a half century of Hungarian history. This building was the seat of the Nazis, and after that of the communists. If you go down into the basement, you will still see the torture chambers, where these regimes kept their victims. The huge building is now equipped with the latest technology and while walking through the floors you can listen to narration, see survivor's eyewitness reports on large screens, view the cars of the leaders, different display rooms, and you can get answers to your questions about these desperate periods of history. Part of the building, which is not open to the public, is still an active police jail.
