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

A little confusing at the front door since you have to go through a metal detector (no backpacks allowed but they will securely store them for you). The first floor has audio guide wands which was nice and again a little hard to find the numbers on exhibits so I just put in any three digit number and listened. Once... More

I agree with a few people who visited and felt there were too many story boards. Having said that, we spent two and a half hours walking around, listening to the audio presentations, the videos, and reading about the events of this horrible era and all the atrocities at that time. The few artifacts and the boxcar were indeed the... More

The subject matter is very important and I understand that, however I wasn't real impressed with the museum. A lot of story boards and such explaining what happened and some testimonials by video of some who went through this horrible time, but I was expecting more artifacts that a museum should have. The boxcar was of course the highlight of... More

This was a wonderful place to visit. Very heartbreaking, but yet so educational at the same time. I stood at the caw car and cried. Wonderful exhibition. Can't wait to return. Really bummed about not being able to take pictures though. Will definitely go back!

I've been to several Holocaust Museums throughout the world. This one is rather small but extremely thorough. We could have spent more time listening to all the recorded explanations which are very well done. They are informative and interesting. There are also interesting art exhibits in the upper level of the museum. I was very impressed with the presentation and... More

We enjoyed our visit to the museum. This is a self guided tour and you are provided with an audio wand to hear more information besides what is show on the story boards. There is parking at the building which is free or there is 2 hour street parking in that area. We have been to many museums in our... More

We did not know what to expect here as we have previously been to the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam and that takes some beating. However, we were not disappointed as it extremely well done and very professional. The displays are extremely good being well presented and accurate. There is an audio wand provided for more detailed information if you... More

The museum is a fascinating place to visit and I am glad we took the time to visit. We stopped on Monday at 4pm and were told to come back another time as they closed at 5pm. We returned Tuesday at noon. Because we are traveling with our one year old grandson - we needed to take his stroller inside.... More
