Every man woman and child should visit this museum to learn and relearn the horrors of war. Brought tears to my eyes. We must never forget the horror people suffered and never let it happen again. Wonderful! A must for everyone! Learned so much there.

The Holocaust Museum was better than expected. I brought my 2 children – 9 and 12 who have studied this time period in history. It was laid out very nicely and walked through the time line of Pre-Holocaust to after the release of the prisoners. I found it very educational and enlightening with quotes and artifacts from real survivors. Would... More

Not as large or as good as the one in New York. Interesting but not as powerful. Too many exhibits on the rise of the Nazi party and a lot of statements from local survivors only.The original boxcar used for transport was important and emotional to see. If you haven't been to another one, it is still important to see.

They have an actual boxcar that was used to transport people to the concentration camps. It is certainly not someplace you want to go to lift your spirits. But, it would s very educational and should be seen

Low lighted and quiet if you fall into our group of chronic neuro/cdh/migraine etc. A lot to read. Some of the reading light was bright, so I just skipped those. Unguided, but you get a listening bar for different stops. I took our 11 year old and he was interested and had a lot of questions.

This museum is a tear-jerker. Very informative and well appointed. If you need an audio tour you're provided with a handheld speaker.

This museum did not impress. I guess I had some preconceived notion of what it could have been. My bad. That said, it's okay. It's still very sad. Lots of photos and things to read.

Great entry price, great museum, well curated, great parking (metered tho) and they even had holocaust survivors speaking the day we were there. Wonderful experience, even though it was eerily somber... as it should be.

A great place to get a perspective of the Holocaust. You may do better with a docent tour if you aren't up on the history of that time.
