I've been meaning to get the museum for the several years. A few months ago I finally got the opportunity. It was a super experience and our guide was great. he was also very knowledgeable about all the significant events that transpired during that time period.

The information is very interesting and fun to learn, but the tour we took was a little long-winded. Good experience, and would recommend a visit if you are a history buff.

a very moving and thought provoking environment. The images are haunting. The trip through the museum is very emotional. You can really see how these people were so mistreated.

Not as big as DC but still great and humbling. Take the time to soak up all the history and see the movie they play.

This is a very moving and interesting museum to visit. It gives you a little bit more of a history of the families of the holocaust versus the Nazi perspective. They have two exhibits showing how they were transported to the camps. There was also a exhibit for the 9/11 tragedy, very moving.

What an incredibly eye opening experience! It only costs a couple of bucks to get in but well worth every penny. We can all benefit by learning the history and pain that was suffered so we never repeat it! Every emotion is felt!

A very well coordinated museum. It's a little small - not like the one in D.C. However, I would highly encourage spending a half day at this museum. On the Saturday that we were there, they had Holocaust survivors tell their stories. It will change you.

Very informative sobering experience. You get a feel for the grief and dismay of the time. I have been twice and each time I discover some new factoid.
