This museum had a lot of great information about the Holocaust and had videos from some of the survivors. You could easily spend a couple of hours in this museum looking at all of the displays and watching the movie. It is a pretty good walk from the Cote-St-Catherine subway station, but was well worth it. If you are in... More

This museum is better than I thought!!! It's a little bit of a hike to get there from the metro. The sidewalks are pretty bad. The museum is completely wheelchair accessible. They have an elevator to take you up and down to the different exhibits. They have some cool short movies dispersed thought the museum. The artifacts that they have... More

Although it's not located in downtown, it's not difficult to get here by subway (it's a 5-minute walk from the Station Côte-Sainte-Catherine). It's a small museum located in the Jewish Centre. The staff is very friendly and they're eager to teach and tell you their story. It tells not only the story of the Holocaust but also the story about... More

Sobering reminder of what among the most cultured of humanity are capable of. Excellent emphasis on life in the wide range of European Jewish communities prior to the rise of the nazis.

It's a museum focused on the histories of the victims, their families, the testimony of survivors, how their life was before and then during the war. I went to the museum with my wife, "it's mid afternoon, we can take a look at it quickly". No way... two and a half hours later we were at 2/3 of the exhibitand... More

Had one day left in Montreal and already seen a couple of museums. This was not my first choice, or second, but the only one open on a Monday! No problem finding - the Metro is so convenient - and for $8 a good deal. The museum is divided into three sections - first the pre-Nazi life of Jews in... More

This was a very educational and interesting experience. I loved this because it including little clips and amazing artifacts from the time of World War II. It was very touching and it reminds you of how bad things can be, and it motivates you.

This is one of the best memorial centers I have seen in the world. Everyone who cares about history should visit this center. I already thought I knew a lot about holocaust but I learned even more especially for the period of time before the 2nd world war. Prepare yourself to spend 2-3 hours, take the time to read all...
