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 synogogue is beautiful, must visit. The tour takes about 40 mins. Very interesting insight into Jewish religion and why the community congregates near a synogogue.

Very special synagogue. A real must experience for all of those that visit Budapest. Gives a strong insight into the Holocaust as well.

Wonderful landmark. Important history to see. Don’t expect a warm reception. Greeters and guide were gruff but the content was good.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to us
