This was the one museum I did not want to miss. Get there early and stand in line for tickets before it opens. If you have another person with you, have them walk next door to the back of the building to get tickets for the free Bureau of Engraving and Printing tour for after your Holocaust museum tour while you save your place in line since they are next door to each other. I was definitely in tears when we finished touring, so be prepared for an emotional experience. Parents need to be aware that there are some very tough things to see, my 9 year old seemed to handle it well, but there were certain areas that I purposely shielded him from. He was just to young to fully grasp the concept of the horror and tragedy so no sense in exposing him to the graphic exhibits until he can understand more about it. I am so glad I got to see this museum. They definitely go into detail on how these people became so oppressed that they would not and could not fight back. I definitely learned a lot.
