One of the most heart wrenching views of a past of hate and defeat the world has ever seen. To have this as a constant reminder that we must always move away from this type of world is a must!

The museum contains some important artifacts of the holocaust. It is well designed and interesting to see as many of the exhibits are interactive.

My daughter read and learned all about the Holocaust, she found it to be very interesting. She asked me to take her to the Holocaust museum and I am so glad I did. A very good and moving experience for a 10 year old girl and for me as an adult. The museum is well laid out. They had portable... More

Excellent audio tour, with quite a bit of information. Plan on at least 2 hours to really explore it all. Not a great place for small children due to lack of hands on experiences and the amount of patience required to go through. I brought my 8 & 10 year old boys and they did OK.

Being in St. Petersburg I was made aware of a Holocaust Museum they had in town and by curiosity what a town like St. Pete might have regarding the History of the Holocaust, my wife and I ventured to look for it. It was a real surprise. We found a very well designed place to exhibit the remembrance of such... More

The subject of,the museum is the holocaust, and I recommend that everyone who is old enough to read the many captions describing each exhibit go and learn about this horrifying period of history. Families could attend together if the children are old enough to spend the two or,more house,going through the museum will take.

The docent tour of the downstairs was excellent and included a real boxcar that transported Jews to their deaths. Upstairs was a terrific art exhibit. What I especially like is that, although the Holocaust was a horrible event that resulted in the slaughter of 6 million Jews and others, the exhibit is tastefully done, without photos of the naked bodies...

This was a very informative exhibit on the Holocaust. It was laid out well and one could learn a lot of interesting facts. I like the personal stories of survivors. Probably would bore younger children but middle schoolers and above should enjoy.

The guided tour is a must as you are emotionally involved in the process. They have an original train car that was actually used to transport Jews during the war
