From the outside it's beautiful, when you go in it still beautiful but of course very powerful. The artwork is incredible and really transmits the pain and suffering

The Holocaust was a horrible event beyond imagination. In my opinion a memorial should be made more sincere than made here and reflect not only the Jewish perspective. The main sculpture gives me mixed feelings. It's very well done, but shall I appreciate the art - or shall I be reminded of the suffering?

This memorial is well done!! The hand/arm statue was chilling. It only takes about 30 minutes to see this and it is well worth the time!!

This was very special and definitely worth a visit. Spray anti mosquito first though as there's a pond there, it's a beautiful, sad, thoughtful piece of architecture.

It's good to spray mosquito repellent this time of year, but you have no need to worry while visiting the Holocaust Memorial. The water at the Memorial has been treated and there are no mosquitos there. However, we are in the Zika Zone, so precautions are recommended even outside the Memorial. More

Stunning memorial that captures all the tragedy in a moving sculpture...brought me to tears. Fabulous in photos but a "must see" in person. Touching no matter race, religion or ethnicity.

The Holocaust Memorial visit is a must for everyone visiting Miami Beach. It is a beautiful place but, make sure you are prepared to see what someone with bad intentions leading a group can do. Very sad and beautiful place at the same time telling us about the history of one of the most horrendous chapters of the human kind.... More
