With so many things to see and do in Israel, it is easy to miss this special place....but you MUST allow some time to go through this memorial completely. I have been there two times and enjoyed it both times....and would go again. I learn more each time. Take your children if they are school age and above...they need to... More

I took my teenage daughter here during her first visit to Israel. It was a very moving experience for both of us. The only previous time I had been there was during my first visit to Israel, when I was a couple of years older than my daughter is now. They have changed and added to the exhibits and their... More

An impressive memorial and museum in any sense - from its location, architecture, display to its memorials, sculptures, historical archive (including a video archive with interviews of thousands of eye witnesses), the alley of the "Righteous among the Nations", and the "Children memorial" for the 1.5 million children that were killed. In the center stands the holocaust museum, which gives... More

nobody can understand the essence of Israel without visiting the Yad Vashem Holocust Memorial. It's not an easy or fun visit, but a very educating and very important. It's suitable for everybody. Maby it's a good idea for families with young children to take a guid.

no matter where are you from, what religious you belong to, how old you are, or what are your political views. Visiting Yad Vashem is a MUST. No need to describe the museum, it speaks for itself. warmly recommended to ask for a guide to take you along the site. if not available, take the Audio Guide to walk around... More

I've been to several holocaust museums around the world, and I would rate this one as the second-best, only to the museum in Ukraine. It gave a lot more detail than the museum in Washington, DC. Definitely visit if you are in Israel.

This is a gorgeous memorial, one of the best I have seen, it is amazing that they were able to make it so beautiful when the material itself is just heartbreaking. Be prepared for an emotional day, especially if you have personal connections, and even if you don't. The quality and detail of the exhibits was phenomenal and there is... More

"Yad Vashem" is in Classical Hebrew a memorial It is dedicated to the memory of the millions of Jews killed by the Nazis and honours the memory of those courageous non-Jews who resisted the Nazis. The memorial can be reached on the Jerusalem light railway from town.
