Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice. « less

This memorial is a tasteful, powerful, and informative experience that takes the visitor through not only a mental but a spiritual journey. I would recommend this memorial center to anyone who visits Michigan

Thanks to the docent who took our group through the center. It was very well presented and we enjoyed the historical look at our history.

This is a fabulous trip. You see Glacier National Park, ride a speed boat down the snake river through Hells Canyon, go to Mt Ranier National Park. Everyday is interesting. One of our better trips

Most of the visitors to the museum, they said, are not Jewish. It is so important to see the dramatic extremes our ignorance can and did result in. Prejudice is so dangerous, please see this museum.

Very educational. I was surprised at how big this place was once inside. Was hard to follow as in where you should have started. We caught the tail end of one of the Survivors talk, she was so sweet and many with tissues so be prepared. We chatted with her for a few minutes after and waited for our Survivor... More

The day I was there there was a Holocaust Survivor there to speak about his experience. There was not a dry eye in the... More

I liked all of the information that was given along with authentic pieces and videos. Everything was in chronological order but was hard to follow what was in line next. Expect to stay at least 2 hours... LOVED IT

I love the place. Very moving and sad, good info on Jewish culture. Helps Jews to feel proud of their heritage and reminds of horrors of history. G-d willing Not to be repeated again.

Coming originally from Germany, I have seen a few holocaust memorials like the ones in Berlin, Buchenwald, Dachau and Washington DC. Even more, the holocaust memorial center in Farmington Hills was a very positive surprise, both for the well structured exhibition and how impressive the stories of involved people are illustrated. You can either focus on specific aspects of the... More
