We visited to see a traveling exhibition of the Greek Holocaust Museum about Jewish Greek partisans. The exhibit has left but this is a well curated museum that effectively packs a lot of history in a small place. But it is not too small to have an actual European Forty and Eight boxcar inside the museum. There is adequate free... More

The museum is well organized and very educational, detailing the rise of Nazism and the horror of the concentration camps. The most poignant of the visit was seeing one of the cattle cars that transported men, women and children to the camps. The "prisoners" were packed into the train without water or facilities and many died en route. The cattle... More

This exhibit brought tears to my eyes. That so many people could be duped by Adolf Hitler is beyond me. This museum is a must for anyone visiting Saint Petersburg. Let it serve as a reminder to all that we should NEVER let anything like this occur to mankind. Photography is excellent .

First visit and loved it. Spent 45 minutes reading information next to many photos. The boxcar on display impressed me a lot. I was sad and scared while there. Scared because on 2016 we are still practicing atrocities. The shoes from 2 small children made me so sad. They were so fancy and beautiful. Learned a lot details about that... More

Very interesting museum. It provides a lot of information through texts, pictures, timelines and audiovisual content. It's a 2-3 hours visit.

You HAVE to visit this museum if you find yourself in St. Pete's. "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." So very true, especially in light of our current political state ... I left this museum in what felt like a state of shock, a feeling that stayed with me for a very long time afterward.... More

This museum is smaller, but full of so much history. They take you through a timeline of the events that occurred, with the final room being an actual box car used to transfer jews to camps. It was a touching visit, full of sights everyone should witness. Please visit.

Take the time to have a guided tour to get a truly moving experience. Don't skip their other exhibits if they have one. We had to opportunity to see the "Civil Right's Exhibit" and it was also very well put together.

Great museum, to remind us what can happen when Society turns the other way, while citizens are being bullied. Museum also has a ongoing exhibit of art upstairs, and a wonderful gift shop full of hard to find books.
