Along with the western wall and the dead sea, I firmly believe this is an absolute must to visit when visiting israel. For me, it was a perticialularly special experience, being able to visit with my grandfather that went through the concentration camps. I would use caution when considering bringing kids though. It is a real emotional experience and kids... More

It's like walking through a history lesson. Very sad and heartbreaking at times, maddening at other times, but also uplifting and hopeful.

I'm not overly fond of museums, but this is a must-see for visitors to Israel. The reality of the Holocaust cannot be denied - the evidence is so clear. The Children's Museum is done so well. In fact it is the best of others I have seen. Be prepared to be unsettled but also determined to not let this happen... More

A reminder of one of mankind's darkest hours. A tribute to those that perished, to those that survived and to the few who stood up for what was right.

The documentation of the terrible things the Jews endured by the Germans, the French, the Swiss, and the Spanish needs to be seen. The world cannot have this happen again as it is now with ISIS and our leaders turning their backs on Christians, Jews and moderate Moslems. The photos are stunning and it makes it unbelievable that humans could... More

This museum is extremely well done. I am no expert but it is designed so you can get as much as you have time to absorb. What struck me was that today's fascists are no different than the nazis. They murder indiscriminately and record their crimes against humanity with pride. A sign of hope is that this masterpiece museum is... More

Very moving. Even with knowledge of the events one is reminded starkly of how the Jewish people were horribly abused. The separate Children's Museum is incredible.

It was a amazing museum but very crowded. It was hard to really concentrate with all of the tourists and students pushing me around. The building is well designed with natural light but still a very somber atmosphere. The exhibits were created with lots of detail. However the audio guide tended to ramble. It felt like a lot of facts... More
