I had toured the Holocaust Museum at least twenty years ago. It was at another location and only one floor of artifacts. My son expressed interest in seeing this so I took him and his girlfriend on Friday. They are sixteen and seventeen. I was amazed at the new building and it's exhibits. The first floor is a permanent exhibition... More

I am very interested in the Holocaust, but found this museum boring. I believe in reading, but there was just way too much information to read. Too bad that there is not a more interesting way to tell the story. I can not see that this would hold the attention of school children at all. There are 3 floors to... More

Would recommend it strongly to young generation unaware of Shoah... Sculptures are astonishing, architectural design not to call it scenography very thoughtful...

Very interesting museum. If you take time to listen at all stations via the "head set", it can take you a couple of hours. You'll see a train wagon that carried people to the extermination camp of Treblinka, Poland. Very emotional to see that original wagon, still on its original rails. I think it is a must see.

You can go through this museum fairly quickly, don't plan on spending half the day here, It is VERY interesting and definately worth the trip. We used our Bank of America museums on us to get in free.. I had to pay for my youngest son so not a bad deal.

Until that day, my children didn't know anything about the Holocaust, all in elementary school. I am glad I brought them, though. The exhibit was well displayed, tasteful. It was sad, but informative. I may bring them again when they are a bit older, so they can understand more.

The museum does an excellent job tracing the perilous story of European Jews from the disapora to the allied victory of WWII in text and photos and artifacts and videos and personal stories of tenacity and courage. There is a balance of sadness and lessons to learn. The audio allows one to selectively read while listening to succinct segment summaries
