    It was an interesting and informative visit to the beautiful synagogue and you can stay inside as long as you want. Buying a ticket in advance in convenient, although the queue in front of the shopping booth wasn't that long. This is basically a ticket to get inside the synagogue grounds, as there are organized guides on site. The tours in various languages start in the main synagogue, every half an hour with different guides. Don't hesitate to take multiple 25-30 minutes tours, as each guide tells their own story. Also, don't forget to visit the smaller synagogue located in the backyard and, especially, the exhibition in the basement about Budapest Ghetto. Hungarian Jewish Museum and the Lapidarium can be skipped – I found them boring.

    The guides are very informative and the tour quite interesting. There are parts of the history that are extremely sad but are necessary to learn and understand. A very surprising visit that is both beautiful (the interior of this non-traditional synangogue) and makes you reflect on man's inhumanity to man.

    I liked the visit, but it seems expensive to me, the guide lasts about half an hour and the rest you see and you can be as long as you want. The guide within the character of the area was nice and funny. Something that has to be taken into account is that the Jewish museum and the one with the photos of the time is that if you don't know English you don't know what each thing is.
