The museum is well organised and displays, through the use of hundreds of photos and documents, the history of European Jewry dating from Hitler's appointment in 1933, as Chancellor of Germany. The entrance price of $10 includes a "guided tour" but I did not expect the 21/2 hour tour of the museum accompanied by detailed commentary conducted by Elliott Katz... More

We were visiting from Ohio and my 11 year-old daughter wanted to go to this museum. She recently read the Diary of Ann Frank and had done some self-study of the Holocaust. In attendance were myself, my husband, my father-in-law, my daughter (11) and my son (9). The docent, Elliot Katz, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate during our visit. He... More

Mr. Katz, the docent who led the tour I participated in on July 13, 2016 was extremely knowledgeable . You will get an honest, no-nonsense picture of what happened historically during the period of the Holocaust. The tour will be well worth your time and $.

Although it's a bit hard to find (located on highway 41 in a small office complex) this small museum is truly a wonderful educational institution. The displays are well organized and often quite personal and well worth the time to walk through what is essentially a timeline of the pre Holocaust, Holocaust and early post-Holocaust period. While it is an... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the museum. Staff and volunteers were very friendly and welcoming. Museum is air conditioned, has nice (small) restrooms, and is well maintained. Our tour guide Lina was very knowledgeable and gave detailed explanations. The tour lasted about 90 mins so we would have time to look around afterward. The exhibits were well organized. We... More

This was no doubt a place to visit we did the tour in the afternoon with an excellent guide which gave us details of the Holocaust facts that we have never heard off.We meet some people on the tour that had families in Polland at that time some day don't service.

I had previously visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC so I did not have high expectations for this small museum. I was proved wrong! Our guide was so knowledgeable. His family were survivors of the Holocaust and he was really able to personalize the tour. The photos in the museum really help to tell the story. This museum is... More

We appreciate your visit, Eileen. While we certainly cannot compare in size and scope with the USHMM, we are pleased to be able to share the story from the perspective of our local community members who lived through that period. More

As the Holocaust was a tragic event it's nice to have this museum to educate generations and remember the horrors victims endured. This museum may look small on the outside and out of place but the treasures you'll find inside will stay with you for a lifetime. Amazing museum!

We know how hard it is to choose to visit a Holocaust Museum when you are a beautiful place like Naples, but we are glad you took the time. The story of the Holocaust connects to all of us in some way and it's important that we continue to learn. More
