Amazing place. How it started is amazing, you will get to really talk to someone who was there. It's a very difficult place to be, but very, very well done and interesting. It's history. It's painful.

Most wonderful guide who personalized our tour through the history of the Holocaust through many interesting photos and artifacts. Loved it more than any other Holocaust tour I have been on.

we went when the guide was going to speak. It absolutely made the whole experience thought-provoking, and made the holocaust come to life. He told of his survival and took us through the beginning to the end in pictures from the ghettos and the concentration camps. We must remember what happened for sure!

Truly an important reminder of history that must to be shared . It was a remarkable journey for that 1 1/2 hour tour . I am humbled by the experience and so fortunate to have made the journey to listen and appreciate those that have shared so much memorabilia.

A wonderful presentation by Herb Berkely. He had lots of stories about survivors from Naples and his talk was helpful in reminding us, yet again, how important it is to educate our children so that they too can spread the word, so the Hoocaust can never happen again.

So much more could be achieved if these people had more space and the Museum was more centrally located.

We are so glad you were able to find us! We know it's difficult to find us here in the Sandalwood Square Plaza and we are certainly bursting at the seams, but we do our best in the space we have. The Museum is working on a new strategic plan that includes a permanent home and we look forward to... More

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
