Ground floor

The ground-floor rooms, the staircase and the inner yard do not strictly belong to the exhibition space but is an integral part of the concept of the House of Terror Museum. 

The two marble memorial slabs at the steps in the entrance hall and the short documentary played in the lobby, the interior of the café, the documentaries shown on the screens on the wall and the tank in the yard all warn us about one thing: this block of flats is not a usual one, similarly to this dark period of history which is presented in relation to the history of this block. The set of statues in the stairway allude to the contorted and bitter tragicomedy of dictatorships, to illustrate how lame and ridiculous their effort was to force their own way on the order of creation.
