This museum covers a very emotional and serious topic in a sensitive manner that honors the memories of the victims while educating people on the historical significance of the Holocaust. You won't get museum-fatigue.

It is totally unbelievable how some people don't believe that this really happened. I wept through many of the exhibits. I thing everyone should walk through this piece of historical information. One of the most moving things was the video of he people that had lived through it.

This is one of the best museums I have ever visited. The verbal testimonies of the survivors were especially moving. It is very well laid out with the history of the Holocaust in words and pictures and outside a railway carriage that was used to transport people to the extermination camps. Actually entering the carriage and knowing how many victims... More

the docents are delightful and helpful. I'm partially disabled and there is parking near the door and plenty of help inside. The displays are historically accurate and important for all to see

Emotional and draining. Everyone should visit this museum, not for fun, but for education as to how humans should never do this again.

We attended the opening of the Ground Zero 360 exhibit which features photos of 9/11 rescue workers, a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, artifacts from the site, and the uniforms of deceased first responders. Very moving exhibit.

This is a great tour to expand your knowledge about that dark piece of the world's history. My advice is to take the guided tour, then go through the museum again, "on your own" this time. Knowledgeable and friendly tour guide - family member of a holocaust survivor. Affordable admission fee, especially for students. Photography not allowed inside, only outside.... More

Amazing exhibit that I think everyone should see if you get the opportunity. So well done, amazing that they even had a train car that they used to ship people to the camps and a boat that that the Danes used to help the Jewish Danes escape. Highly recommend!
