Part of the vast, interconnected caves beneath Castle Hill, Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum served as a nuclear bunker and emergency hospital during 20th-century wartime. During World War II, the 10 km (6 mi) of caves and cellars in this region were connected and used as a bomb shelter. You can visit the hospital portion, where doctors treated civilians and soldiers until July 1945, then again during the 1956 Revolution. Take a guided tour of the hospital, learn more about Hungarian history from 1938 up through the Cold War, and witness the difficult conditions under which doctors and nurses worked in these caves.

  • An hour that flies by! I have visited this museum twice now. I love that it brings the scenes to life with the waxworks. It's good to appreciate the importance of this place as a hospital in...

  • I had read about this place and it sparked my curiosity, but I did not expect it to be so big and so very interesting. The tour takes you deep into the mountain, past rooms set up as they were when...

  • The museum was awesome! We love going to these kind of museums and have been to many before. This one is definitely one of our favourites! The staff was super friendly and helped us to find the right tickets for us. Also our tour guide was really nice too. Her English was excellent and she had a lot of knowledge (there are audio guides as well). Definitely a must-visit!
  • We had an amazing experience with the tour given by Lilla. She was absolutely brilliant. She gave us interesting facts, with a clear tone and she is very approachable to ask further questions. The attraction itself was very good and maintained well. The history speaks volumes. I would highly recommend this place.
