You will learn so much about the Holocaust and how very little of this is reported in detail except at this museum.

Fantastic museum that gives insight to details that are not easily found in other history records. Anyone can go as it's open to the public. It's a must see!

It is a very small museum with a very big impact. I highly recommend visiting it. It is a great learning opportunity with moving and impactful stories.

Recently had the opportunity to attend the museum and was amazed at all of the historical data they have. The staff is extremely knowledgable and they were very accommodating in answering any questions. It's a very moving experience. They even have an anti-bullying program they present to local schools. My only suggestion would be get the word out... have lived... More

I visited this museum for the second time and really enjoyed it. It was my father's first visit and he enjoyed it, as well. I have worked in a Holocaust museum, and still learned something from this visit. The museum is very small, but they have some incredible artifacts. There was a great blend of historical facts and personal testimonies,... More

Very small yet we appreciated the sacrifice and efforts of those who have made this important place possible. We learned a great deal, mostly because of our time spent listening to the gentleman who was head of the education department. Call ahead and come when you are able to hear someone speak. We joined in with a group that had... More

The Holocaust Center is not large or fancy. It is self-guided and you are going to need a smart phone to download the tour audio. There are two stations where you press a button to hear audio. It is so LOUD that if someone is playing this audio, you cannot hear your self-guided audio. You can turn these OFF if... More

My wife Jenny and I visited the Holocaust Museum in Wash DC several years ago, We were surprised to find this exhibit of the WW II event in Orlando,Fla.., so we took our 18 year old daughter to this museum on an off day while visiting Disney. We drove about 30 minutes from MCO airport to the museum. The small... More

Small, free and packs in an amazing amount of material from that tragic period. It is really worth a visit if you are interested in learning about the Holocaust.
