This was so much fun. The museum itself is just lovely, but this particular exhibit left my kids wanting to read books by this author nonstop. There were plenty of activities, both active and passive, to keep them busy for a full morning. I hope they will do another exhibit like this. It has been a few months since we... More

I took a small group of ladies during the week. We did a self guided tour of displays covering the Jewish community in Atlanta. There was also a nice exhibit of quilts and newspaper articles.

The Breman brings in some very interesting exhibits throughout the year. The building is very pretty and there is free parking.

I found the exhibit good but to me it was just a bunch of pictures and brief infomation about that picture. I have been to the exhibit in DC and was expecting something similar but found it to be lacking that feeling and explanations.

The Breman Museum is an Atlanta gem! Exhibits of the Jewish artists (Maurice Sendak drawings for children's books & some illustrated letters.are currently on view) and the advancing doom of the Holocaust (tracking places of terror and some individuals, this permanent exhibit of vocal testimony, objects, and photographs reveals evidence of the Jewish people in Europe murdered by the Nazis)....

I decided to take my 15 year old daughter after she expressed interest in the Holocaust. When you walk through the doors there is a small gift shop ahead on the right. That is where we purchased our tickets. Being a homeschool and child we were able to purchase them for $6 each. The doors to the museum are across... More

This place was very overwhelming. There were no many pictures of people who did not survive the camps. It became very depressing and sad by the time I left.

The Breman Museum is a gem in the middle of Midtown Atlanta. The permanent exhibits are chock full of interesting articles and, pictures and multi media equipment. It is small but don't expect to see it all in one experience. The special exhibits are fascinating and change periodically. In addition, the lectures are worthwhile as well as the special music...

I was visting the Center for Puppetry Arts and saw this Museum located just across the street. It is completely fenced in so you have to be buzzed in even as a walker. This museum has a very extensive collection of Holocaust items. I have been to several Holocaust sites and memorials in Poland, Romania, Germany, Czech Rep. and this... More

The tours are led by volunteers who take you through the museum to experience what it was like to live in Europe during Hitlers reign. Some of the volunteers were relatives of people who died in the death camps or survived the atrocities and were able to share their experiences. They share heart felt stories of what happened during this... More
