I am glad we visited. Many of our ancestors perished in the Holocaust. The self-guided iPad tour was informative and interesting. Easy to follow. To ignore the Holocaust is to betray it.

We had a volunteer guide and it made it even more real. Very good and so glad we took the time to go on a Sunday afternoon. It is always shocking to hear all the terrible events of the Holocaust and each museum has something different. The guide was the daughter of a surviver and was used to educating children... More

Found my way to Montreal Holocaust Museum by Metro. Not hard to reach, about 3 walking blocks from Metro. I can not say enough about this memorial! The history that has been obtained and on display is phenomenal. You are given iPads for when you put a number from the display case, it gives you more details about that item.... More

A must see. Make sure you have time to go through, small but lots of things to take in. Very reflective.

Montreal is fortunate enough to have a Holocaust museum in comparison to the size of its Jewish community. The small but extensively archived Montreal Holocaust Center is a mere 15 minute drive northwest from the downtown core in the middle of what was once the Jewish ghetto (still very Jewish) and could be a better experience if taken on a...

This museum is small but has so much to see that we needed more than the 2 hours we had. The personal narratives of the survivors that are shown throughout the museum were so moving. They stay with you and you want to share them with others. The narratives speak to determination, perseverance and hope.

A small, but special place. I most liked that there was a focus on the lives of pre-Holocaust Jewish communities. The loving and living that preceded hatred and death. Felt the humanity, dignity of people. In some ways a relief from other memorials, but in a way made the sense of loss for what was, and might have been, even... More

We visited this out of the way museum at the request of our high school daughter. Compared to some other similar museum and exhibits we thought this was really well done. It worked hard to provide context and didn't focus just on the atrocities. The survivor video testimonials were very moving. Our middle school boys spent 90 minutes here and... More
