Not to be missed on a trip to the area. We had planned to visit Auschwiz later in the yearbut I dont think I could handle it. The museum and guide were superb from technical points of view. However, it's what it represents that's important. Don't miss it.

This museum is so complete, historically, the videos of testimonials are Amazing. the artifacts are varied, and the place is organized in chunks, so you can do it in sections.

I'm from Singapore and still shed tears on my third visit here. Again, grateful for how the Safdie architecture and design of the place contributed so much to the powerful experience!

My wife saw this for the first time, and I've been there many times over the years. We listened to the audio account and we were there over six hours - the Jews went through huge suffering as a people and the final solution mapped by the Nazis killed at least 6 million Jews and others. We must never forget.... More

Incredible walk through the history that culminated in the slaughter of 6 million Jews. Touches on macro events and how they impacted individuals and families. Well worth a couple hours when you are in a contemplative mood.

It is a beautiful facility, but not so easy to take in as a Jewish person. They really did a magnificent job on the entire grounds. If you have been to the national memorial in WA. DC you get the idea of the reality inside the facility and how it honors those stolen from us.
