A very good museum to visit. The entry price is reasonable. The staff are very helpful , knowledgeable and friendly. This museum is worth visiting being I have toured many concentration camps over seas, I was very impressed with the history they have on display here.

We chose this Museum while visiting in Atlanta. The exhibits were interesting and the phone system to help navigate the museum was quite unique. The Historic Perspective of the Jewish Community of Georgia. The pictures, documents and stories were educational.

I used this place to teach my 10 year-old child about a very dark time of world history. She was in fifth grade and was soon to learn about World War Two. I figured in school they might gloss it over, so I wanted to make sure she got the whole picture. She knows a lot about Jewish people because... More

I was disappointed. Very few artifacts, mostly just enlarged photos. $12 was way too much for what it was.

This is a must visit in Atlanta, especially now that the city has a Center for Civil and Human Rights. Here you can see what had happened when racism was in control. How one nation could murder 6 million innocent people, only because they were Jewish. In Atlanta, the birthplace of Martin L. King, one can understand that racism should... More

This museum is definitely at jewel for Atlanta. I'm not sure why it is not promoted more. I do not know of anyone that has ever visited it which is a shame!! The museum is beautifully done although kind of hard to maneuver. There is a reason it is laid out the way it is and it is explained in... More

Having been to both the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C and the Illinois Holocaust Museum, I went to the Atlanta Museum not expecting too much from it. How wrong I was. While small, they disseminated much information about the Holocaust that I had been unaware of. I particularly appreciated the first tiny room I entered, where I learned about the... More

When my son and I entered the museum, we didn't know what to expect. I have seen pictures of other Holocaust exhibits as well as the stories of survivors. Being Jewish with my ancestry being Eastern European, I am vested in this part of history. This exhibit focused more on the people and less on the shock value of the... More
