This Holocaust Museum is exceptional. It tells the story of this darket hour in an intelligent and comprehensive way. This is a must stop when in the area. The Docents are very knowledgeable and offer free tours at prescribed hours. I recommend taking the tour, plus the tour is included in the price of admissions.

Considering the relatively small size of this museum, there were an amazing amount of artifacts there. The docent was especially well versed relative to all aspects of the Holocaust.

We didn't anticipate the number of guests who would be joining the tour with over. With over people to listen, the docent explained his role and shared his wealth of info with us. The museum is mainly a large room divided into timelines and numbered to follow if you chose not to listen to the docent. I highly recommend that... More

My husband and I enjoyed our tour of the holocaust museum. The docent was so interesting to listen to. Some of the pictures were shocking, so brutal. He did mention the movie "The Pianist", which we watched that evening. So emotional. This museum is well worth the visit and is rated a must see if you are in or around... More

We are so glad you took advantage of our Museum. This Museum is an outgrowth of a 7th grade student exhibit, so education of young people is our main focus. We serve an average of 15,000 students each year through our various programs, including many homeschool groups. Thanks for visiting! More

Small but powerful. Well worth the time and small fee. Docent was excellent. I learned a lot. My 16 year old son was so moved that he thinks he might like to study the topic in more depth when he goes to college.

For a small museum there is a lot to read and look at. I really enjoyed the tour and feel the history is so important to know. I have been to the camps in poland and the history here matches what i have seen before. Worth a trip for family

The Holocaust Museum in Naples is located in only a few rooms but offers a ton of information and many artifacts, over 1,000 World War II and Holocaust artifacts and original photographs. You can take both self-guided and Docent-led tours. The Museum has afternoon hours and offers a docent tour at 1:30PM. I strongly recommend taking the docent tour if... More
