The Holocaust was a horrible time in history, and this museum has complete description, photos, and videos to show the horrible conditions people faced. If you want to experience what the place has to offer and read everything, the visit can be over an hour long so be ready to spend a good amount of time here.

This museum was a very moving tribute to the holocaust survivors and what people had to endure to live under Hitler. Puts a perspective on how we treat each other now and how scary it is when we see ourselves or others not given the respect of human dignity.

I wouldn't say "What a wonderful time " I would say that I was brought back in time and experienced the climate of Poland, Germany and Russia from per-war to the end of the war. The museum is set up so well as to lead you on a journey through time It was so extremely informative and well put together... More

This Memorial is house in a Gold Coast Mansion. The docent we had was very interesting and informative, Allow about 1.5 hrs to do the tour and read the information on the walls next to the pictures.

You must go with your older children and see for yourself. This is an opportunity to teach our younger generation. Don't pass it by.
