Overview
More
The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984. Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice.

This center is a humbling experience, taking you through Jewish practice, the rise of the Nazi party and then into the concentration camps, and ending with the Hall of the Righteous. Prepare to be emotional but also educated. We were fortunate enough to have a...More

This is a good memorial to visit. It's valuable and the way the history is presented is excellent and moving. Do not rely on the website for schedule...I would suggest calling and asking. Give yourself a solid 2 hours to go through this memorial.

Never, Never Again! Should this happen and if it does shame on US! If you have the opportunity and there is a survivor to tell their story, then, take the time as it is worth it

This is a very good memorial museum. It is a heavy, emotional experience, but something that everyone should experience at least once. I have been to other holocaust museums, and this one is really good. We took 2 of our children, ages 12 and 14....More

The building's architecture and organization are superb. Excellent timeline of Judaism throughout history. Marvelous exhibits, and then, as the 1920s end, you VERY APPROPRIATELY go DOWN a ramp; the passageway becomes narrow and dark. This is the entryway to the atrocities. Searing newsreels show the...More

We took our 9 year old granddaughter as she expressed an interest and it was emotionally draining but a needed visit. We are not Jewish but everyone should visit and be reminded of the horror and how the world looked away.

You can go anytime to visit the museum. To do a guided tour or hear one of the survivors (highly recommended), call them to find out the times but you don't need a reservation.
