The Hospital in the Rock, Nuclear Bunker Museum is located in the heart of Europe, under the Buda Castle, in Budapest. The Budapest Card also provides a good service here, as you can get a great discount on the price of your museum ticket.

In Hungary, the hospital has always played an important historical role as an emergency facility both in the Second World War and during the 1956 revolution, and to this day. In Hungary, the level of treatment is outstanding, a very high quality is provided by our excellent specialists in the hospitals and in the healthcare industry.

The place was developed into a nuclear bunker during the Cold War and was kept strictly secret until 2002, when it began to uncover the whereabouts of the Rock Hospital.

The museum opened its doors in 2007 and has now seen more than 1,000,000 visitors. Quite an amazing number! The mission of the institution is to show the true face of war and highlight the value of peace. Maybe this topic will never fade away, especially nowadays. It commemorates the everyday heroes who proved to the country and showed heroism during the most difficult periods of the twentieth century. In the spirit of all the above mentioned reasons, the museum’s primary goal is to preserve and present the eternal values of these times, the medical devices and tools of war care, and the tunnels under the Buda Castle District.

There is also an exhibition at the Rock Hospital about Friedrich Born, who, as a delegate to the International Committee of the Red Cross in Hungary, saved the lives of more than 15,000 people during the Holocaust.

In addition, we can learn about the siege of Buda Castle and nuclear weapons if we visit this completely unique and interesting place.

Guided tours are available in the more than 2,000-square-foot museum; trained guides will show visitors the history of the underground facility and all its exhibits in 60 minutes. The Budapest Card provides a 25% discount for visitors here.
