Location was good. Exhibit was great and so sad but I highly recommend to visit the place while visiting the city. Very informative and we took the guided tour which is a plus and made me more understand its significance. It is a free museum but I encourage every visitor to give a donation for a good cause.

While the topic is a painful one for all of humanity, the museum gives a voice to those who suffered. It was eye opening for me even though I have studied this period of history. When you see the maps, the locations, and the faces it becomes real and undeniable somehow in a way that is more forceful than reading,... More

Although the Museum shuts by around 5 pm on most days, this museum gave me the shivers. It offers a rare insight into Jewish art and history during the Holocaust without being extremely graphic in nature.

Very informative without being graphic. The pictures were appropriate from my 7 year old cousin. There were some artifacts, but it is mostly reading. There isn't much to keep the attention of small children, but it's not a large museum and it's free, so it's worth the stop. The displays are modern and attractive, and many are in English and...

The museum is beautiful and it is very well kept, but it is a little small. The entrance is free though.

This museum was organised as a journey in time. One goes from TV presentation to another in well timed synchronization. There were some actual artifacts to see and well displayed and very well explained. We shall not forget

What I liked best about the museum was that it was keyed to the stories and artifacts of local survivors, of which there were many. The staff was extremely helpful, and the exhibits were informative and accurate.

A review of a tragic time in world history. Even though we all know what happened, still the pictures of the people involved and the timeline of antisemitism (going back centuries) almost takes your breath away. No longer difficult to get to and more than adequate parking. No fees, only voluntary contributions. I liked the combination of writing, pictures, and... More

they were doing down town construction and roads going that away were blocked off. we parked in parking mall down town and had to walk several blocks to get to it. no one around there seem to even know where it was at. so just know this if you are planning on visiting it.
