Please go free admission, do not rush your time there. A living history that should not ever A be repeated. 10 minute walk from the light rail or take a TAXI

It is some years ago when I went to Israel. I have a lot of wonderful memories of this country. But the most touching experience I ever had in my life was the Memorial. I was most moved about the area where you must go through a dark room along a line.Names of Jewish murdered children are read and you... More

People visiting were very respectful and quiet, it is a moving place, with short film accounts from survivors of this horrendous act of genocide. What happened should never be forgotten and Yad Vashem is a very fitting tribute

I have already been to the places like Auschwitz and Oscar Schindler factory museum therefore had general understanding of the subject. This memorial however provides unique enough view so it is worth visiting even if you already been to similar places. The entrance to the memorial is free (parking will cost you NIS 28 and audio guide another NIS 20).... More

You need loads of time here - there is so much information - I wanted to read and look at everything. Architecture is beautiful. DOn't miss the view as you exit which is breathtaking and sums up the Jewish people - always looking ahead and to the future. The children's memorial is stunning, very moving - I felt as though...

Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem is one of those places that is a must see by all people, regardless of their creed, ethnicity or national origins. The museum houses artifacts and items that are a testament to the atrocities committed by the evil nazis (word deliberately not capitalized) against the Jewish people during World war II. The layout... More

The entrance is free and the audio is worth every penny. Inside you can see everything, from how jews used to live before the war and the ghettos they would stay in. Pictures, shoes of those who died, prison uniforms. They have lots of original stuff and at the end they tel you that they are still trying to gather... More

This is a place where any human being, stand shocked faces the cruelty of others whom build a mass destruction machine that was tuned for one kind of a "production" - to eliminate the Jews and to erase them from the planet. Yet -horrible as it is, it is a must visit place and it puts all your small difficulties... More
