“Be prepared to question humanity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The facts and statistics are just staggering. Mans inhumanity to man just got even harder to understand, or comprehend.
A real horrorshow that is an absolute must see

“sad, but well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

As a doctor I really wanted to see this museum. They dont charge for entrance, but appreciate donations. It was a strong place to see, and I am very glad i went. It really gives you perspective.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I only had about an hour but I would have preferred to have stayed a couple of hours watching some of the documentaries they have on hand in a special viewing room.
