Very Moving

This monument is well thought out. The design is very symbolic, you can literally "feel" what it was like for those living through the holocaust.

Very moving, quiet unusual memorial with large pillars with names of the murdered.It's outdoors so needs decent weather and is a bit hard to find.

We literally walked through it, and the heat coming through the vents was welcome on an unusually cold May day. It's a beautifully designed memorial and a testament to the victims.

The New England Holocaust Memorial is conveniently located near Faneuil Hall and absolutely worth a visit. It's simply offers a brief, meaningful stroll through sad, powerful Holocaust memories. It provides a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the dangers of hatred and to remember the victims of terror.

This memorial is moving and saddening. It is a moment of solace and reflection in a city full of history, remembering Holocaust victims and sharing quotes from survivors. Each of the six glass towers has one million numbers etched on it: the identification codes of the six million victims. There is also a timeline of events.

Pictures do not do the Memorial justice. Strikes a perfect balance between informing and educating people and remembering a horrible time. Whether you are knowledgeable about the Holocaust or this is an introduction to what happened to innocent people you will be moved by the Memorial. Definitely must experience.

I saw good reviews to stop and see this, however, I didn't know it was right in front of your face when you are in the historic part of Boston - we just fell upon it when going to the Union Oyster House - right across the street. Spend some time going into these beautiful glass monuments - there are... More

It is beautiful to be able to experience a significant moment in history. It helps educate others on the hardships and triumphs of those held in concentration camps. Definitely, would recommend.

We kind of stumbled upon this without knowing, even though it was on our list. It was lit up nicely at night, and added to the solemnity, but harder to see some of it. Nice that the American's have one though.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
