This Museum opened my eyes to the horrible injustice these poor people endured. The pictures, stories and short films were just so sad, such a truly horrific piece of history that unfortunately does not get taught to our children.

My husband and I was vacationing down here all week and love history so we took the tour. We loved the audio devices that helped with the tour ; which were free! The pictures, stories, videos and artifacts are amazing. Very much worth the visit. If we don't teach our children about the past it could be easily repeated.

Upon entering, a volunteer gives you an audio device you hang around your neck. I was greeted by Marty, who felt he was funny and made derogatory remarks about the size of my head. Nice greeting! They had some interesting exhibits covering not just the holocaust, but other times and other examples of genocide. They had thought-provoking presentations. There is... More

A small museum but packed with so much information. We were there for about 2 hours. The museum is nicely laid out so you can see all the exhibits. One of the exhibits is an original boxcar. I love history, and was surprised there was information that I hadn't heard before. Well worth the trip if you are near St.... More

This museum is a small display of paintings depicting various aspects of the Holocaust . The paintings are very well done and certainly evoke emotion !!. Cost is your donation.

Free parking $16 admissions for an adult Wheel chair accessible Elevator available to get to the 2nd floor. Really glad I made the trip for this museum visit. There is a metal detector upon entry which reminds you of the threat the Jewish community is constantly under. $16 for adults, there are discounts for seniors, active duty military and students....

Very incredible and sombering tour. Very luck to have this museum in St Pete. Make sure to set aside at least 2 hours to have time to do the guided tour.

We have been to the Washington museum and thought this museum was just as well done. True, this is a small museum, but the exhibits are very well placed and thought out. They do have a actual box car that was used to transport Jews to the concentration camps. The artifacts are presented in a very respectful way and their... More

No matter what your persuasion be sure to visit this Museum in the heart of St Petersburg, You will learn things you have never heard before, and have history brought to life when you read and listen to the accounts of the survivors. A special surprise for us was when an older woman tapped us on the shoulder and asked... More

Well worth a visit. Parking on site. To hear stories first hand by survivors on video struck a chord with me. Located in the arts district so after half a day here you can walk around outside and see pretty things to lift your spirits.
