A very worthwhile visit. For people who have already been to Yad Vashem or who just would find Yad Vashem too overwhelming. This is a more focussed museum and is a little more personal as it was established by survivors who live on the kibbutz.

I have wanted to visit here for a long time and I am glad that I had the chance on a recent visit to the Haifa area. It is also very close to Haifa.

An exceptional museum about the horrors of the Holocaust. Please give yourself at least three or more hours here. It’s interactive and there are testimonies throughout the museum.
You can choose from English Hebrew and other languages to listen to these very personal stories from survivors

A must see museum! For some reason many tourists are unaware of this museum as many only go to Yad Vashem. This is such an important place to visit as not only was is built from the incredible survivors of the holocaust, it come from a different perspective and dedicates an exhibition to the resistance fighters during the war. I also found the children's museum particularly emotional and moving.

Subject: Ghetto Fighters Museum (Lohamei HaGetaot Museum)
Location: Nahariya, Northern District, Israel, Middle East
Title: The Children's Museum
ID#: 244051139

Having now made research visits to over 40 Holocaust Museums around the world I believe the Children's Museum is one of the best-realized of them all, as its special mission - the introduction of the Shoah to youngsters - required just the sensitivity and creativity evident there. A combination of catchy music, engaging displays, and side rooms for hands-on learning activities is a sure winner with parents and children alike. I do hope other Holocaust Museums take note, and soon provide similar material, as we have a responsibility to ease youngsters into the subject .

Maybe not a fun attraction, but life's not always fun. Time for some contemplation and historic realization: visit the Ghetto Fighters Museum. We also viewed their very realistic and heartbreaking exhibition about the Jews of Holland. The museum holds many historic items that bring you closer to history, almost like holding hands with some of the holocaust victims. It also comprises a grim exhibition about the concentration camps including a list of logos of German companies that benefited from these camps.

We stumbled upon this gem on our way home from a camping trip in Northern Israel. It's located on the main road right outside of Nahariya. We went with our 6 kids ages 6 - 16 and while it was definitely more appropriate for ages 10 and up, everyone really enjoyed on his or her own level. There were hourly tours available but we did the museum on our own. It's very well done, informative and emotional without being overly oppressive for the younger crowd. I felt it was a great first look at the Holocaust for younger kids. The focus of the museum (the ghetto fighters as opposed to the Holocaust) leaves you feeling uplifted and with even more of a love of Israel and the Jewish people. The museum is clean, packed with exhibits (we were there for almost 2 hours and could've stayed longer), has many language option and is wheelchair and stroller friendly (although again, really not geared for really little ones). There's also a beautiful lookout on the roof.

I first visited this Kibbutz in 1980. It is a very moving and emotional experience. Many tourists go to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem to learn about the Holocaust. But in recent years Yad Vashem has become extremely crowded and overwhelming. I believe this takes away from the emotional and educational experience offered by Kibbutz Lochamei Hagitaot. There is nothing like Yad Vashem that truly provides the full story but you really need several days to absorb the information. Lochamei HaGitaot is an educational and emotional experience and you will leave there with a good understanding of how the Jews fought hard against their fate. Highly recommended.

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.

This museum is set up a bit differently than Yad Vashem in Jerusalem but also includes an excellent children's museum. So if you have kids that you are interested in them experiencing a holocaust museum this would be it. There are no gory pictures but rather a walk down through towns and feelings of young children during the fearful times of WWII.

This museum located on the northern Mediterranean coast of Israel is divided into two sections. One with exhibits of various aspects of the holocaust in Europe during WWII. The other is the children's museum which affords children, as well as adults an inside look into the Holocaust without the horrors of the main museum or other Holocaust museums throughout the world. Through a serious of galleries visitors walk through different areas of life to get a better understanding of what the Jewish people dealt with during this period of time.
Outside the museum is also one fo the best preserved Roman aqueducts in Israel.
