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.

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. I am happy...More

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

Traveling with several from the former Soviet Union, we decided Memento park was a necessary addition to our travels around Budapest. Rather than keep all of the statuary up, all over the city, the Hungarians collected them and brought them to create a park. Make...More

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. A lot...More

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

Best to look at the webpage of Memento Park, but I would think that the bus will be running, possibly at a lower frequency because of the holidays.
