I've visited a number of times before and always learn so much more about the Holocaust, an inexhaustible somber subject. We owe Simon Wisenthal a great debt for his lifelong quest to unearth information about the Shoah & to identify the perpetrators, however long the time. Most meaningful are recollections by survivors and the opportunity to speak with them -... More

This is one of the best museums on the holocaust. I found the style of each section drawing you into that time to be an excellent way to describe how this tragedy could have occurred. Having visited s number of museums on this topic I find this style to be one of the best. Being given a card of an... More

My daughter & I recently toured a section of the museum. It was a very profound & emotional visit. I would have liked to have spent more time there. I do plan on returning the next time I am in LA. I highly recommend visiting this museum & bring your children. It is a very moving experience.

Absolutely everyone needs to take a few hours of their life and be here. You will be a better person for it. Teach your children: tolerance, compassion, peace, have a voice, love & appreciate one another.

My wife and I have previously visited the concentration camp sites of Auschwitz and Dachau, and I have visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. These were very moving experiences for us. We were curious what the Museum of Tolerance might present. We attended an informative 1-hour talk by a holocaust survivor, which was the highlight of our visit. We... More

A truly moving experience for our entire party that ranged from 9 to 76. You simply must attend one of the talks from a holocaust survivor if you have the chance. We all listened intently for an hour and could have listened for another few hours. Be prepared to be moved to tears even if you are not normally. A... More

My visit started on a sour note as they initially turned me away for not having reservations. Seems that there were some school groups and they were full. I made reservations for some hours later and returned. Also, the museum does not permit food, drinks, cameras and any sharp objects (all understandable) but they provide no place to put them...

This has something for every age, and is staffed by people who care. From learning about immigration for the younger set (an LA version of the NYC Tenement Museum tour), to being reminded about prejudice and hatred of every type for all ages, you can't go wrong at this moving yet still pleasant museum. Because we had a smaller child... More

This is an awesome museum that will shed light to anyone. Words can't describe this powerful experience. A must for everyone who wants to see what history has to tell and not to repeat it.
