The park is located kind of far, but it has good public transport access. The statues are insane as well as good guy at entrance. If you are interested in soviet history, it’s must see for you.. Really great place for uncommon photos.
May be a bit of trek to find Memento Park, a 15 minute bus ride from the end of the M4 metro link out of Budapest but it well worth it for a place that is less tourist attraction & more labour of love preserving...More
Having a tour in Hungarian National Museum (also recommended) I was confused and tired by the plots, the marriages, the machinery of dukes, Kings, queens etc. But These statues make honor to the power of simple men when inspired by great purposes.

This is really a spectacular cemetery of communist era kitsch. Most countries have had the terrible habit of tearing down and destroying the artifacts of a bygone era. Instead, Hungary moved its communist period statues to a park away from the city center. Here the...More
Learn a little about the communist past with these intimidating statues commemmorating some pretty unpleasant 'heroes'.

A long busride nr 150 from Budapest, better is to take the direct shuttle from Deak Ter at 1100 am. This shuttle brings you back at 1pm. Two hours is plenty of time.
At Memento Park there is no coffee or lunch establishment.
What a great place to learn about Communism and their Secret Service. The park itself is the retirement home for a lot of the monuments that celebrated the Communist era, plus there are archives and training films for the secret service.
Memento Park is a...More
We caught the bus connected to Memento Park from a main square in Budapest. We boarded at 11:00, and they returned us by 13:30. With the 20-30 minute drive that allowed 1.5 hours at the park, which is plenty of time. We participated in the...More

I honestly don't remember for sure - I know we didn't have any florins so we either paid by credit card or used euros. Many of the Hungarian sites are very kind to accept euros so you don't have to get florins for a short... More
I honestly don't remember for sure - I know we didn't have any florins so we either paid by credit card or used euros. Many of the Hungarian sites are very kind to accept euros so you don't have to get florins for a short stay. Sorry I can't be more definitive.
