This museum has many, many displays about the Jewish heritage. It's a learning place for all of us. I didn't like the glass displays as the lights above made a reflection that was hard to read through.

Very interesting museum...but a little pricey. The museum is very small. I did like that the museum had testimonials from actual survivors that were from the area.

This museum does an excellent job of giving an historical overview and describing events of the Holocaust. You will get more out of it if you patiently read all the information presented.

This is an amazing museum of information and education about the horrible event in most of our lives. For the younger generation who were not exposed to this, they should be required to see this. Take your time...there is lots to read and feel

A truly first rate educational experience on one of the most tragic events in modern history. Wish there were more photographs but the art upstairs is truly an emotional journey.

When one understands the dark side of the moon, one can better appreciate the light side of the moon. The Florida Holocaust Museum is rather like that. There are many very well organized glimpses of the acutely dark time, but with the depictions of of...More
