Visited the Holocaust museum during our vacation. It was very awing and informational. We did the walk thru tour and not with a guide. A bunch of artifacts were donating and we generally learned a lot. I recommend for those history folks who love to read and learn. Wouldn't recommend young kids. There are guided tours and voice recorded offered as well. It was $15 per person. Took us about an hour a half to look through everything.

The truth must be told.

We live in an era of untruth coming from all directions so it is very important to prove in words and pictures what humankind is capable of. This small but interesting museum provides proof of the evil committed by the Nazi regime. Those monsters were defeated by the valiant effort of so many and we must always remain on our guard against fascism and hate.

First rate museum on Holocaust history
Feb 2020
The holocaust museum in Naples Florida is a definite stop for visitors to the city of Naples! With the price of a ticket you have an opportunity to take a self guided tour or to have a guide help explain some of the very informative displays. For me Having a personal guide(Elaine) helped prioritize and explain some of the vast museum’s collection of information on this tragic time in history! Incidentally I only learned of the Holocaust Museum‘s existence by visiting the military Museum at the Naples airport. Our guide Charles at the military museum informed us about this Holocaust Museum.

Excellent museum in unexpected place
Feb 2020 • Family
The museum and artifacts were very well presented. It is the staff and the "tour" that really make this an exceptional place. The "tour" is really a lecture/presentation that happens while moving chronologically through the museum. Really well done. Tour was interesting and engaging for our middle schoolers. Would not be appropriate for younger children who would not be able to be still and quiet. Staff were exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable.

The tour guide got angry and very inappropriate when I asked him a question
Feb 2020
The guide started the tour with the statement that he "gave a politically incorrect" tour and it went down hill from there. After the tour ended, he accused me of being anti semitic when I asked a question about the 3 million POWs/slave laborers that were also annihilated. He became increasingly angry and hostile. He then proceeded to tell me that the reason why I asked the question was because of my ethnic background! I hope this is not what the museum is aiming for, and I was very dismayed. Many ethnic/religious groups suffereed from the Nazi organized Holocaust. Recognition of the breadth of the victims who suffered this tragedy should be an important message of the museum and would help keep the overall message alive!

Would not want to expose my friends or family to that docent. I suggest that docent be retired, or skip the museum.

Thank you for visiting the Museum and for writing to us about your experience. I am very sorry to hear about the interaction you had with our docent and will speak with him right away. Please be assured this is not the message of the Museum. Our goal is to teach the facts of the Holocaust, discuss the fact that 6 million Jews and 6 million other people, including the disabled, Slavs, Roma, homosexuals, communists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, were killed by the Nazis. We hope people will leave the Museum feeling inspired to take action against bigotry, hatred and violence and promote mutual respect for all people.

Very Informative
Feb 2020
Our visit was very informative. We arrived about 20 minutes after the first tour had begun and were told that we could stay for the second tour to hear what we had missed. We ended up staying for close to three hours. We didn't want to leave. Both lecturers were full of energy. While both lectures were excellent, they each provided additional information. I realized that there is still so much to learn.

Educational experience for adults
Feb 2020 • Couples
The docent giving the guided tour was fantastic. The museum is small, but the knowledge of the docent was more valuable than exhibits. He explained in depth for an hour and a half the lead up to the holocaust and then the entire time line of the war as well as the aftermath. It was educational and thought provoking.

Worthwhile visit
Feb 2020
The Holocaust Museum is in a strip mall in Naples. Decided to visit on recent trip to Naples and glad I did. Would recommend taking the tour with docent—included in admission price. Moving experience.

Making History Real !
Jan 2020
This museum eloquently tells the story of the Holocaust. I have been to many Holocaust Museums around the world and found them all to be meaningful, almost spiritual experiences. This museum is relatively small but is equal to its larger counterparts because of the excellent guided tours. Be sure to schedule your visit to include the movie and the guided tour. I encourage any family with teenagers to bring them along. This museum makes history come alive.
