This museum helps to remind of what has happened in the past and even what is happening still today. A really sobering insight to "Man Inhumanity" This museum will help future generations realize the full effects of racism and bigotry. We must insure this never happens again!

This is one of the best Holocaust Museums I have been to, all are necessary and informative. This one was extra special. They have a film of local people who survived the holocaust and their stories. The boxcar is there as well, but also a boat that helped transport Jewish people to safety at the risk of their own lives.... More

The Holocaust Museum is a city treasure. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit despite it being so jarring. The displays are well organized and nicely presented. The staff is also very helpful. A must if you have a couple of hours.

It was a very emotional trip. Learned alot about the people that existed back then and the way they was treated. Now I truly understand the star of David. Would like to take my kids there one day.

I liked it. There were lots of information to know about the Jews in Europe and Nazi's existence at that time.
