I was totally engrossed in the exhibits and the stories of the victims. It made the holocaust very real and very personal with the photos and the stories. It is beyond belief that this happened and even more so that many deny the veracity of...More

This is a museum everyone should visit, if only to be reminded of how a sophisticated culture can descend into barbarity when people are marginalized and dehumanized. The space is small, but filled with informative exhibitions that trace the Holocaust from its beginnings to the...More

This excellent museum tells the story of the holocaust in a teaching, non-shocking manner. It expresses tolerance and displays several artifacts from people local to the community. Currently it has an exhibition on Adolph Eichmann - his background, discovering him in Aregentina, his capture and...More

We visited because national media had recently reported on an exhibit here - the kidnapping and trial of Adolph Eichmann. Although we lived through that time and had vague memories of it, we found the exhibit fascinating - particularly the replica of the bullet-proof "box"...More

I've only been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C., not to the other places you mentioned. The St. Pete museum is smaller than D.C. but well worth your time.
