My family and I spent a good two hours looking through the FHM today while on vacation and while I was a little hesitant to visit (I generally don't "do" heavy stuff on vacation), I'm glad I did. It wasn't as depressing as I thought it would be, but rather soul stirring with lots of artifacts and stories about individuals.... More

I like visiting this museum and getting a huge dose of history all in one place. It is a calm, quiet place, with easily accessible exhibits. The staff are always helpful and kind when I attend. The museum is very clean and open, informational wands are available, and it is accessible to all walks of life,whether they need strollers, walkers,... More

Lots of story boards and very little artifacts. This is a sad time in our history but I could have got the same info and feelings from Bing or Google. No cameras which made no sense. I was told everything is copyrighted, which I get, but there is so little there to take pics of. I personally feel the no... More

This is a smaller museum, but very well done and worth visiting. There are 3 floors and a majority of the exhibits are on the first floor. The second and third floor exhibits take much less time to look through (in fact the third floor is only an art exhibit.) Overall this is a well done museum that is worth... More

People should just go and experience this information for themselves. There is a lot to absorb but it is well laid out and very do-able for visitors.

I truly encourage everyone in the area to visit this museum. It is enlightening not only from a historical perspective but also an inspirational perspective. I particularly enjoyed the focus on those who did everything they could to save Jews.

We spent close to three hours in the museum. They have an actual railroad car from Poland that was used to transport Jews to the extermination camps. The car has been left in its original condition. The first floor of the museum starts with an explanation of why there was anti-Semitism and then continues explaining the reasons for the holocaust... More

This museum is small in size, but big on content. It took about two hours to explore all three floors fairly diligently. We took the audio tour (hand-held audio wands that you program the exhibit number into) of the 1st floor, which added a lot of info beyond what was posted on or in the display. The second floor contained... More

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.
