Having read mixed reviews of Memento Park, we left it for our last day in Budapest. But we're glad we did it! This is a chance to see historical relics that you will not see anywhere in America- that's a guarantee.
We signed up for the bus and guided tour online (just google Memento Park and select the top link) rather than take the public bus. A bit more costly, but definitely worth it for the tour and probably worth the lack of hassle getting there. A word of caution on the bus though, make sure you know where you're getting it, and be ready to get on right when it comes. The tickets were oversold and some people had to sit on the floor and others may've been left behind. The bus (more like a large van) picks you up on Deak Ferenc Ter on the park side, where all the other tour buses pull up.
The guided tour was really great. It was just us and another couple who walked with the tour guide. She was very knowledgable and passionate about the park itself, and related stories from her life growing up in a communist country.
The statues are really special too. The park is not huge, and it really is just the statues and a strange instructional video on being a spy in the 1970's, but with the guided tour we found this to be one of the experiences on our vacation we've been talking about the most since we've been home.
