As I was viewing the museum one of the visitors was crying. I think this museum affects our deepest emotional beings and causes reflection on what is truly important in our lives.

The museum is filled with graphic, disturbing pictures of Jewish life during the Holocaust era and joyous, hopeful photos of life afterward. For anyone who wants to better understand what it was like for a Jew in Germany, Poland and other European countries prior to and during the 1930s and 1940s this museum is a must.

Programs here run the gamut from hearing and talking to a Holocaust (Jews prefer Shoah) survivor, educational programs that point out many tricks used by those working at mfg plants. I did not know and have never understood why there wasn't more resistance. They "fought" by making defective ammunition, and other forms of passive resistance. Bremen had a fabulous Judaica... More

We went to the museum to see the exhibit, Return to Rich's. The Rich's exhibit was very good and brought back wonderful memories. The Holocaust exhibit was very touching and interesting.

Went to visit because Alyssa missed it with the rescheduled trip to Atlanta by her school. She had spoken of wanting to go so we wanted to make sure she saw this very important part of history.

I have been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C, twice, and I've visited the Illinois Museum in Skokie a few times. I found the perspective of the Breman Museum to be really interesting. I felt more than other Holocaust Museums, the Breman tried to display positives; for example, its collection about pre-Holocaust Jewish culture in Europe was excellent. I visited... More

When I first entered and paid for my ticket, I was underwhelmed. I thought that the whole museum was under construction. But such is the size of this museum and the variety of exhibits in it that even though I think about half of the space was undergoing renovation, I still spent about 2 hours there. The main exhibits open... More

Having been to the Holocaust Museum in Washington I was deeply moved and impressed with the exhibit in Atlanta. I think that the personal interviews of survivors was powerful and innovative. (It may be my own hearing issued but some of the videos were hard to hear clearly in the ambient noise) I was surprised to learn of the large... More

A great set up -- History of Jews in Atlanta, a rotating exhibit and a gripping Holocaust display. I would recommend it especially if you're not quite ready for the intensity of the Holocaust museum in DC.
