Although emotional and sad throughout, I think everyone should visit this museum to learn not only what happened in the past, but to understand what humans are capable of and what could (already is) happen again.

This museum is one you should not miss. It leaves you with strong emotions and understanding of the impact made by the people who were involved in the Holocaust. A must see.

In a town full of upbeat artwork, beautiful views, magnificent high rise buildings stands a building that chronicles some of the worst history of humankind. It is filled with the horrors that people of WWII endured at the hands of the Nazis and shows how awful people can be. The museum will take you to a time and place that... More

Be prepared to be emotionally touched. Very educational, especially for people who only read about this horrific event in history books.

Worth the visit. Learned a lot and seeing a box car up close was a bit sad. It did bring it into focus. Never again!

We were not sure what to expect. It is a very nice display from the children's art to the polish boxcar, you can be engaged with the story, history and peoples lives. We were allowed in for free with our teacher Id's but the cost would be worth it. In the end we spent several valuable hours of our time... More

This was well worth the visit. Next time we will make sure we can spend more than 2.5 hours. Very informative and well laid out. First class museum.

We had a docent take us through the Florida Holocaust Museum and it was exceptional. If you don't know the history (and I thought I knew a lot), the volunteer's knowledge was endless and her father was a holocaust survivor. Much of the art and artifacts in the museum came from families of survivors or their families. I had no... More
