Accessible by Metro with a 5-10 minute walk, this museum is small but worth a visit if you have the time. It's not near anything, but is a fascinating museum. Everything is written in French & English, and has lots of pictures, texts, videos, and memorabilia.

There is a lot of information here that deserves the time to take it all in. This place gives you a lot to think about our history and what wasn't done to help the victims of the Holocaust. This is a definite must see.

I've previously been to Holocaust museums in Dallas, Washington DC, Oswiecim, Paris. and Jerusalem, but this one still added to my understanding of the inconceivable. A key feature is the living witness testimonies: each section has a video in which survivors describe their experience and perspective (at the time and in hindsight). I really appreciated that there is an emphasis... More

A very interesting and moving experience. Displays very well done and really brings the Holocaust to a personal level by telling specific stories of individuals...as well as giving a good historic perspective. Always something new to learn! Bring kleenex

Truly a special place to visit. Stories are movingly told by survivors' posted testimonies. Told from a very human perspective recounting one of history's most inhumane periods. Creates a heartfelt impression that never should be lost. Easy to self tour, very reasonably priced and can be done in about 1 1/2 hours. Recommended for all ages and all backgrounds.

A wonderful display of Jewish artifacts from the holocaust. The entrance fee is inexpensive and it is easy to go through. For those who want to see and read about this period, it is very well documented. You will definitely learn something! Enjoy.
