This kibbutz & museum were set up by survivors of the Holocaust, some of whom still walk the streets and give lectures here. Worth a visit for sure.

I visited this museum with an older group from London and we were all well aware of the Holocaust and the terrible plight of our Jewish people. However, this museum showed a different perspective, and the exhibits were housed in glass cases, and each and every one was so impressive. The guide was especially good, being a young man who...

Take with you tissues and a very close buddy to cry with. It is moving and ranging but necessary to see. We do not understand the Israelis without realising that part of their background. Even as an Israeli, I needed to know about the Holocaust - especially the children. They grew up and raised a generation that is still affecting... More

I visited the Holocaust museum with high school teens. The items on display in the different showrooms tell heart breaking stories of loss and survival, of strength of mind and body ... All is displayed in interesting way, to catch the eye of the visitor and make him/her think. The Childrens' Building is especially impressive. The guides of the Museum... More

The museum presents the story of the the Jewish ghetto fighters during WWII in the valiant struggle againt the Nazi occupation in the different Jewishly populated cities of Eastern Europe. The exhibition is modern and uses digital technology to present the story of the ghetto fighters. Well worth a 2 hour visit.

A comprehensive museum of the experience in the ghettos during the Shoah, the live inside them and the resistance. A good combination of museum, archives and educational center.

Visited here with family from abroad. Excellent museum - "doable". Not too big, but extensive enough to be informative and interesting. There is a children's museum and also the regular museum. Smaller size and less crowded makes it more manageable than the excellent Yad Vashem museum. Entrance fees are very low.

We tried to visit this museum on our way back from Rosh Hanikra but we were too late, so we went back the next morning. This is a very well laid out museum with excellent exhibits.

Going with a group, we were given barely an hour to see the whole museum, of some four floors, before they close at 4 PM, so we only had time for a quick look at the main floor, the artists' perspective within the camps and the second floor detailing the heroism of the Jewish resistance fighters. I was told we... More
