This redesigned museum cleverly allows visitors to get a feeling of how the Jews of Europe were trapped by the Nazis.

This was our second visit to Yad Vashem. It was as powerful and difficult to visit this time as the last. Do not miss the Children's Memorial. Rent an audio guide and leave at least two hours. The horror of the holocaust is overwhelming and makes you wonder about man's inhumanity towards man. The museum is quiet, somber, with the most beautiful grounds. Admission is free, with donations accepted.

You really only need to visit the Holocaust History Museum but be sure you leave yourself enough time because there is a lot to see and read and it takes a while to absorb all of the information. The entire very sad story is presented amazingly well and thoroughly.

As a youngster, I remember visiting over 40 years ago. It is a different experience now as an adult. The exhibits have been expanded and there are many more memorials added to the entire site. While my wife and I spent hours, we could have devoted much more time. It is draining. The magnitude of how many people of all nationalities who were involved is taxing to comprehend. It is difficult to put into words....

Very moving and heartbreaking. Realize if you go in the summer, it will be packed with summer tourists. In addition, every "Summer in Israel program, Birthright, etc as well as Israeli soldiers in cultural education trips, go this must see site. It is packed. However, rent a tour audio and go at your own pace - you will not notice the people. Budget 4 hours at least
