This is a very nice museum. It's a little hard to find. Seems to have both a rotating and a permanent collection. Very different from most Holocaust Museums in that it is thematic and interpretive. However such museams benefit greatly from good guide materials.

I stayed in a similar location to where you will be. It's a leisurely walk (maybe 30 mins max) or a 10 mins taxi ride. Enjoy :)
