Your trip to the Holocaust Museum will not be pleasurable but it is necessary. We, as a society, must remember the atrocious events of the 1930s and 1940s as there are those today who deny that the Holocaust even happened. The powerful exhibits are best experienced with a docent, some of whom may be a survivor or a second generation... More

We learn about the Holocaust in school. But even that does not prepare you for what you are about to see and hear. Even though it brought it all to full light and caused us all to have such a depressed feeling, this museum should be visited by all. You will quickly learn to appreciate the life that you are...

I have learned about the Holocaust throughout school, but what you learn here is so much more. I would highly recommend the tour, and then to walk through on your own time as well. Our tour guide was an older gentleman, who I believe is a professor. You could tell how passionate he was about not only the subject, but... More

A small, compact but very moving series of exhibitions. One can easily spend a couple of hours to absorb it. Highly recommend

I believe everyone should visit this museum, so that no one ever forgets how the evil thoughts and ideas of one man spread so rapidly. I was a history teacher, and believe that we teach history so that we can celebrate history's triumphs as well as learn from the mistakes, so that we can prevent such evil from ever happening...

Faroosi. Are you a muslim who is in denial of these events. If so you are a useless lump with no brains. Of course this and the other 550 holocaust museums 8n the USA Alone are based on exact true evidence. I am a survivor myself.!!!

Very well done. Not too big, not too small. A history lesson we should NEVER forget. Lots of personal items and stories. The most moving exhibit is the train car. This is an original train car used to transport Jews to the extermination/labor camps. It sits outside of the museum at one end. You are allowed to enter and stand... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Holocaust Museum and learned a lot while we were there. They offer guided tours, if you prefer, but we chose a self tour.

Brilliantly laid out, this moving exhibit lulls you into a false sense of intellectual bliss before slowly and methodically ripping your heart out. One is drawn in, like an excellent book into reading more and more of the exhibit's information, before you know it, you are completely enveloped in emotions despite trying to keep that intellectual distance. Just when you... More
