Artifacts you've never seen about a miunderstood place in history-was it the Good Concentraton Camp as some attest? I don't think so. This is in town a short van ride from the actual Camp./ And do get the ice cream across the street. The food sold in the basement isn't appealing or pack your own. Door to Door Prague-Terezin and back 6 hours. On a bad traffic Monday.

Very informative and interesting, but be prepared for extensive reading. There are some artifacts, but the exhibit is primarily made-up of large informative poster boards with copious info. Definately interesting, but somewhat exhaustive after having toured the grounds on my feet for several hours. I might suggest visiting the Museum PRIOR to visiting Terezin Small Fortress, but definately check the schedule for the tour times there in your language, as not to miss the opportunity.
The museum also housed a small number of drawings from the children of Terezin, that were discovered. These were very moving, especially considering almost none of the children survived.
If you are traveling with small children, you may want to skip the museum altogether, as there is nothing to catch their attention there.
Without children, definately worth the visit, as long as you have the time to read all the information.

The museum is very sad but informative. The displays are set up well. A moving experience.

Go to this unbelievable site if you are interested in modern history, especially the Jewish/Nazi holocaust. If you are not interested go anyway as it will change your outlook on life in general. Having been to Belsen and Auschwitz I have to say I didnt expect much from this smaller, less well known place. However it is so well set out and looked after it is incredible. We were there 4 hours and this was not enough as we had to rush to catch the last bus back to Prague.
See the Musuem, Small Fortress, Gestapo tunnels, Jewish cemeteries, Columbarium, Barracks, Ohre river memorial (where 22,000 Jews ashes were thrown away) and so much more.
Big tip, dont go on organised trips, £50 each, catch a service bus from Nadrazi for £4.50 return and pay £7 to see the whole town a saving of £77! Its 50 minutes on the bus which run every 2 hours and are never a minute late!

As someone who is interested in WW2, I found this both fascinating and scary. The museum is very well laid out and all exhibits are clearly marked. We were ushered into the cinema to watch the film about Terezin Ghetto. For those who are not aware, it was a ghetto/ holding camp, and when the Red Cross visited, it was smartened up and used as a 'Model Camp'.

The saddest part was the artwork by the schoolchildren. Broadly it fell into 3 categories, Home, The Camp and some fantastically creative work about the camp and the future. They really brought tears to the eyes, especially when you looked at the ages of the artists.

A moving experience.
