A must see when in Jerusalem! There was a large group of very young soldiers being shown around Yad Vashem. The exhibits were moving and informative.

Huge memorial with unique design that direct the visitor to follow the exhibits from the entrance to the exit. You could spend the whole day watching videos and seeing historical photos and objects.

The physical structure is serene, quiet, a perfect setting for the horrors of the holocaust. It was a profound experience, I only wish I had more time. If you are short of time skip the audio tour, it is lengthy and everything is explained thoroughly on the exhibitions.

It was a moving, important thing to experience when in Israel. As a commander of an Officer Candidate class for the IDF told me, "we bring all of the soldiers here, they have to know that without this, Israel wouldn't be here." Yad Vashem not only teaches about the atrocities of the Holocaust, but it makes you appreciate how Israel... More

I saved Yad Vashem for my last day in Jerusalem; it was the only planned site on that day (along with Mount Herzl.) A quick little light rail ride brought me to the best museum I have ever visited that easily took most of my day (and all of my heart). The physical layout of Yad Vashem is an aspect... More

A comprehensive display of the worst crime ever commited in history. Extremely disturbing and depressing facts with photos coupled with audio and video inputs.

I have been to several holocaust museums and Yad Vashem is the best and my favorite. It is very well planned and thoroughly covers everything by time period and by country. The Children Memorial is beautiful. Make sure you have a full day to explore.

Set in beautiful surroundings near Mt Hertl, easily accessed from Jerusalem by the modern, air-conditioned Light Railway (just under 7 NIS) It is walk-able from the station but there is a free shuttle bus located on Ha-Zikaron St every 20 minutes (its a 5 minute walk!). The Memorial Museum gets busy so get there early as there is a lot... More

You need at least a full day for this museum, or even more. 3 hours, the time we had at the museum, was not nearly enough. The architecture and design of the main building is striking and unique. Even more interesting is the story behind why it is designed the way it is.. like an endless maze. The amount of... More
