A small space, totally packed with history and with a real box car. Moving, intense, riveting. Try to get a docent led tour. Our docent was incredibly knowledgeable. Our visit ended up taking all morning and there was still more that we didn't see. Superb offering.

We called into the museum on one of those cloudy cool days in Naples. It is a small and fascinating place with guides who are extremely knowledgeable. The artefacts and photographs spoke volumes. This is not a glitzy place but a true and honest account of a terrible time in our history, I am glad we went.

This is a very good display of items and photos taken from the concentration camps. It is much more educational to book a guide. This display should be seen by every one to appreciate what we have to day. For the size of Naples, this exhibit is excellent.

Elliott Katz's detailed lectures of specific aspects of the Holocaust are not to be missed. Elliott is an inspiring speaker and educator. Elliott is also a docent at the museum; call ahead to find out when he is there (he's not there very day). It's worth scheduling your visit to coincide with Elliott's schedule if you can.

I was blessed to attend a tour led by an amazing historian, Elliot Katz, who brought home the broader picture of how this terrible event evolved. Excellent, important for every person to hear, as the difficult choices made by every day people then (support life, or give in to fear and intolerance) are the same choices we face today. The...

We made the mistake of touring the museum on a rainy day, which is a recommendation. There were about 60 people on the tour, which is twice the amount that this small museum can hold. Everyone was squeezed together, with no room to see anything, without anywhere to sit. It was so claustrophobic that it took away so much from... More

This is definitely an education that everyone needs. Make sure you bring your kids and get one of the tour guides. Ours was wonderful and added more meaning to the exhibit.

As members of the Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Naples we take advantage of the many wonderful events and lectures series offered. We always enjoy Elliott Katz lectures on the Holocaust. Most educational and eye-opening. Once you go to one, you will want to continue with the series. In addition, docent tours at the Museum are a must when... More

We spent two hours with a fabulous docent and learned so much we never knew. We highly recommend this Museum for people of all religions whether a young or old adult. A tough message but, a llesson we should never forget.

When we saw the address for this museum we thought it must be a small pace and we'd probably spend about 15-30 minutes there. To our surprise and delight the docent-led tour (given twice daily Mon-Fri) was one one of the best we've ever had. We learned so much more about how WWI and resulting frustrations with economic/sociological circumstances helped... More
