The House of Terror holds exhibitions concerning the successive Fascist and Communist regimes which ruled Hungary throughout the 20th Century. The building itself was the former headquarters of the Fascist Arrow Cross party, and the building was subsequently used as a prison and torture venue by the State Security services of Hungary.
