This extremely well done museum of the Holocaust is one of the best I have seen. You simply have to see it if you are here.

First this museum is amazing in its design and structure. It fully compliments it purpose. The progression of the Holocaust is done in a moving and effective manner. How the Holocaust ravaged children, women the aged and the able is sickening. How it spread from city to city and country to country is historic. How the evils of Hitler's regime... More

This is the only Holocaust museum I have ever visited. While it is such a solemn museum, you must visit. I thought it would be too difficult to spend much time here. Boy, was I wrong! We were the last ones to close the place. While we did see some groups with private tour guides, you don't need one. This... More

Yad Vashem is a highlight for anyone on a tour of Israel. Since we have been there before it was very interesting to compare from now to 10 years ago. The new venues added are beautiful and gives you a full overview of what happened in the 1940's.

Thankful for the creators of this museum for the thoughtful way to tell this horrific story of what happened to the Jewish people. You hear personal testimonies from individuals who survived. You will leave this museum a changed person.

Visited Yad Vashem This is an amazing powerful museum In particular I enjoyed the large outdoor spaces where one could reflect and process the horror of the holocaust in private Interesting installations in the extensive grounds I found the simplicity of the children's museum quite profound Don't miss if you are in Jerusalem Susan Sims

My wife and I spent 4 hours at the museum. That was 3 and 3/4 more time than Donald Trump, who came a couple days later. Had he spent more time, he would know more and speak less, and the world would be better off. This is an extraordinary place. As a museum, on a design-level, it is extraordinary. In... More

During this tour, no picture taking is allowed. Some documentations we saw in the videos are truly depressing.

I saw displays of what was made from these people's skin like lamp shades etc . There was these tomb stones in the floor... More
