This was a MUST for us, and we are so glad we went! The exhibits are very well done, and they give you a much better understanding of the Holocaust. You can easily take the Metro here; just get off at the Mount Herzel station and it's a short walk.

This cannot be called a "fun" activity, yet it is something that eveyone should visit it when in Jerusalem.

What can I say? I could barely finish going through the exhibits as I was in tears. You think you know about what happened, and you probably do know the basics, but the details of the victims and the stories of the survivors...heartbreaking doesn't begin to cover it. You come through there thinking--how did this happen? Do we, as a... More

Visited for the second time now with my 14 year old daughter. Stories and video interviews with a lot of survivors and deceased made everything even more tangible and concrete. We must remember.

We had very high expectations but were disappointed by the people who work there. Yad Vashem is a big garden with many pavilions if you don't want to get lost or wonder without sense you have to pay for the map. So parking 28 nis and a map another 12 nis. We didn't know that we will need the map.... More

An important place to visit when in Israel. There are many moving parts of the museum though please note that no photography is allowed inside. After the tour there is a balcony that overlooks a forest and the view is heartening after seeing the difficult images of the Holocaust inside. Don't miss the eternal flame and the names of all...

The actual building and architecture is very modern and interesting. It is worth visiting the Yad Vashem museum if you are in the vicinity. The quietness and sadness remains in the atmosphere there. You will learn as little or as much as you would like to. I read the information and watched the films. I read the stories of the... More

Great place with a lot of information to go through. Allow plenty of time here, it is worth it. Easily accessible by tram and bus.

I'm not the kind of person who calls things "life-changing," but I imagine this is as close as I'll get. The museum is designed with intention behind every detail. Beautifully thought out. You descend further into the mountain (underground) as your heard aches more and more. You'll learn about elements of the holocaust you never knew of -- the secret... More

This is a place not to miss! Entry is free into the museum, parking is underneath the building at a cost of 28nis for 10 hours. Audio guides are available for 25nis - highly recommend as it gives the listener ample information without having to read everything. I recommend a minimum of 3 hours. The experience gave me a greater... More
