There are tours several times a day given by well informed docents. Much memoriabilia to remind us of this sad time in our history. Very well presented. The docents shared stories from survivors.

We had family visiting who wanted to attend a tour so we went on the tour and was a amazing but sad reminder of what people lived through or died there. Sad to imagine that in this wonderful world there are still people who treat others so horrible.if you have a choice , think before you do or say something... More

We have visited this museum at least six or seven times. Each time it is a moving experience. We have taken the docent-led tour a few times and it is recommended for anyone visiting the museum for the first time. However, if you miss the guided tour, the museum is small and is laid out in such a way that... More

Thank you so much for this great summary of our Museum. We try to present at least 2 temporary exhibits each year to keep people coming back - we are so glad that you do! We realize the our current exhibit, "Dearest Pauline", needs some edits to make it better. We have included a short power point/film that highlights some... More

Thanks so much for visiting! Our docents really try to craft their tours so that our visitors have a good experience here and keep coming back. We do plan to stay in this location for the foreseeable future. Although we are certainly outgrowing our space, we have no plans to move yet! More

This is not a "fun" attraction, but you will walk out enlightened and better informed of the horrors suffered by millions during WWII. Originally started by local grade school children as a history project, this museum provides an incredible opportunity for all of us to learn about the past so that it is never repeated. It is well organized and... More

This is one place everyone, Jewish or not should visit. The displays are well done and our guided tour was educational and very well informed. It is hard to believe this was started as a school project. The staff is very well informed and go out of their way to make sure you see and understand it all.

This museum thoroughly makes up for their small size with the vast quantity of displays and information. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgable, and they have a wide variety of speakers that come in. You'll also want to tour the restored box car if it's not on tour, the experience really puts history into a whole different perspective. I... More

Stopped in halfway through a Docent's tour. He was a fountain of information. Displays were nice and educational. Some of the stories were pretty graphic...but that's history.

I've been reading a lot of books written by Holocaust Survivors. I was drawn to go to this Museum for that reason. I went on Saturday, October 18. The receptionist was very friendly, showing me different books available for sale. At 1:30 I participated in a Group tour that included a Gentleman that was a SURVIVOR. Just being in this... More
