A wonderful museum to learn the history leading up to and during the Holocaust. During the year, they have speakers and exhibits too. There is also a gift shop and the volunteers are very nice and helpful. Not many cities have a Holocaust Museum, some have centers or memorials, so this is truly a special place.

Not every museum is one that I would do more than once and this is probably one of those. Definitely moving emotionally and you will learn about what really happened. Train car brings it all to light. Take you time as you will likely go just once.

Very well thought out. The upper floor was very interesting highlighting areas in the world where people are/have been persecuted. The wagon displayed downstairs very poignant. History shouldn't be forgotten and this is a valuable resource to teach children and remind adults regarding the horror of that regime

It is always good to stand back and remember what has gone on in our world to humanity so our hearts will not be hardened to injustice.

One of the best museum to educate us all and especially age appropriate school age children. Bravo! It involves a number of prejudices against other faiths as well; necessary for all of us to remember injustice can happen to any group at any time. There are always special additions that build on the permanent displays and teach us from the... More

Well visited with its own free parking. If you are there on the first weekend of the month and are a Bank of America account holder, you can get in for free. Most impressive was one of the actual wagon trains where Jews were transported by the Germans. On the second floor, they had a special exhibit on the civil... More

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
