We've visited several holocaust museums around the world and had not intended to visit this one, but for the urging of friends who told us of the special Bill Graham exhibit. Bill Graham was a rock concert promoter and also a victim of the holocaust....More

This is a great, local Holocaust museum. If you have been to the National Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, this might not be all that impressive. It is much smaller with fewer exhibits and features, but it is well laid out, powerful, and would be...More

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.

What an absolutely amazing place. Let's start with it's great building right in the heart of downtown St. Pete, close to everything. And they offer free parking behind the building for visitors. The museum itself is an incredibly educational, moving, and at times very sad...More

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

It's a very moving experience so it depends. Sometimes there is a visiting exhibit that can be powerful. It can really be 1 hour or more, up to each visitor

Way more than you can take in one visit. Two hours to tour and take in the collection. More time if you read all the displays. Depends on your level of interest at each segment.
