any human being must visit this historical museum. we did not encourage visit for our kids until they were 13-14 yrs old depending on maturity and interest. indoor and our door venues. must allocate at least 3 hours to do justice but could easily spend 4-5 hours. take break at coffeshop and continue. lots of info and exhibits to digest

It's been several years since I visited Yad Vashem but I just decided to write a review because I still remember the emotions elicited by the exhibits. As I walked through the museum, I became increasing upset as I tried to grasp the absolute inhumanity of a world trying to eliminate a group of people. Considering the current events in... More

But you must go if you value truth at all. Museum is very complete though probably not exhaustive. Sobering.

The Holocaust memorial museum at Yad Vashem tells the story of the anti semitism which led to the Holocaust and the events of the Holocaust. It is harrowing in parts but all should see it as a lesson for the future. The museum itself takes a long time to walk through if you want to see all that there is.... More

I didn't visit but my husband and his friend did. After several hours they had only seen half of the exhibit. They were glad to have made the visit but it was a very moving and at times harrowing experience.

Yad Vashem is a must see for anyone who wants to understand the Holocaust and how it led to the creation of the State of Israel. The exhibition is built in a chronological manner, like at the Holocaust museum in Washington DC. after which, I think, it was re-modeled. It is a very moving experience, offering an unrivaled wealth of... More

It's an amazing place. It's hard to see their content, the testimonies because it's hard to think and realize what happened. All the complex is impressive. The Hall of names with the pictures is something hard to explain. The Hall of Remembrance is another place to visit as the Children's Memorial, a dark place with thousand of candles, with the...

Was very nice and brought out the holocaust in a very unique way, praising efforts to relieve the suffering and showing video's with testimony's. I was a little turned off that I did not see any coverage on the Jewish people who did whatever they can to preserve they're religion which the Nazi's wanted to destroy. There were people that...
