Small museum but put together very well. Steve, our docent was extremely knowledgeable but a little to long winded on details. He was wonderful, but standing and barely moving around for several hours was a little tough. Understandable I guess, he is a retired history teacher! I felt as though I should be in an auditorium with a slide show,... More

Our docent, Steve B., was outstanding. He narrated our tour for 2 1/2 hours. He was very passionate and invited any questions. The props he used around the room were museum quality and you were able to actually feel the emotion he was trying to portray. A wonderful, sobering experience! No one should miss this museum tour.

Thanks so much for your visit and positive review. Steve is certainly one of our hard-working docents! We have several hundred original photographs and artifacts on display, as well as many reproductions of items from the time period, that help to illustrate the larger story. Many thanks to our community members who have donated these items so that we can... More

Visited the museum with our bible study group. We were privileged as a group to have a guest speaker who was a survivor. It was fascinating to hear about her families struggle during World War II. Afterwards we had a lovely tour guide by the name of Irene. Though the museum is small, they have a wealth of information that... More

We appreciate all of the groups that come to the Museum for a collective experience. Irene is one the of many Holocaust Survivors we are fortunate to work with and Millie is one of our exceptional docents. We hope you plan another trip soon! More

Small holocaust museum, consists mostly of photographs, but some limited artifacts. Make sure you go when a docent is on duty to tell the stories about what is on display

Visited as I've always had an interest in Jewish history, given I was raised Jewish, and my father-in-law's parents and siblings all died in Hungary because of the Holocaust. A bit of confusion, I went for the 1:00 tour, and when the docent hadn't shown up by 1:00, there was some concern. Staff found out that the guide they thought... More

Take the docent led tour, we got many personal family stories. But you could do it alone, as the displays explain the Holocaust tragedy well. It's a small museum worth a visit to learn more about survival as well as loss.

We took the guided tour with Si. It was tragic, shocking and covered so many atrocities in just a short period of time, it was overwhelming. We left and sat in our car, thinking of how we need to remember these events to avoid repeating this horrific history. Highly recommend this museum to everyone. We never want this to happen... More

The museum is small,but to the point. Interesting that the roots of this museum are Naples middle school students and whose majority were not Jewish . The highlights are really the docents especially Wednesday afternoon s,Elliot Katz. Brilliant talk. A must stop for all religious groups who have suffered persecution .they also have a fine lecture series

The museum tells the tragedy against humankind as if you are right there as it is happening. Our guide was excellent. She used her knowledge of the survivors that she knew to bring home the reality of the mass slaughter of human beings. She told the story of the rise of the Nazis and how they planned the mass annihilation... More
