Very emotive and well constructed Memorial, and well worth a visit. Parking nearby, but you won't need more than 45 minutes to an hour - lots of quarters required.

I stop here on my way home and I have to say that it was really impressive. The artist really captured in sculpture the sorrow and sadness, even desperation for all the people who had to live the horrors of the Holocaust.

This memorial is remarkable units architecture and art work. It's a remarkable hidden treasure locator on Miami Beach that should be visited by people of all faiths. While it's a Jewish memorial to be sure, it's really a memorial to all mankind and the notion that we are all one human family a fact that should never be forgotten. Enjoy!

This free memorial to those who died as a result of a leader who convinced millions that other humans were really not humans is extremely moving. If you have any relatives who died as a result of the Holocaust or were liberated after being detained in a concentration camp then you will find it difficult not to shed a tear.... More

It looks impressive, nicely maintained, but I found it hard to understand why it was important to dedicate its message to holocaust only while it would be just the same reasonable for other genocides of the past and the present too. Miami has no more relations to this sad history then the others.

The Holocaust Memorial is free and I think everyone should visit when in Miami. We need to remember the past so we don't make the same mistakes in the future. Its very peaceful.

We visited the Holocaust Memorial as part of a segway tour and were blown away by the beauty and the architecture of this memorial. It is a wonderful tribute to all of the lives lost. Highly recommend.
