I had always heard about the Holocaust and watched documentaries on it, but visiting the Memorial actually makes it more realistic. It is unbelievable how one person could torture a nation in the way he did.

Be sure to allow at least 2-3 hours at this museum. You could make a day of it you had the time. There is a lot to see in many different media. An incredible memorial to those lost in the holocaust.

This museum is a must for every tourist, Jewish or not, visiting Jerusalem and Israel. The entrance is free, and you need at least 2 hours for a quick visit. I think it is not recommended for kids under the age of 14.

A very detailed and well planned museum. It is very large and the crowds can be quite big, so allow plenty of time. Even if you think you already know the story of the holocaust, you will find this a very sobering experience.
