It is really sad such an "attraction" to be Nr. 1 on Tripadvisor. But it's an historical fact, and a warning for future.
The Memorial lefts a deep impression on a visitor, and if you want to see it properly allow 3 hours at least.
Although I was prepared for such an experience (I visited few Holocaust memorials worldwide, including 3 concentration camps), it left a deep impact on me.
The whole history of the Jew people is explained there, from the prehistoric times, with the accent on the Nazi German "Final solution".
To understand Israel well, pay attention to the first two rooms in the museum.
The whole museum consists of several areas, but 3 are unmissable: the museum with the Hall of Names at the end of it, the Hall of Remembrance and the Children's Memorial.
The museum consists of 9 rooms, with great explanations, films, personal memorabilia, actual replicas..., very very informative.
At the end of it is the Hall of Names, with personal data of all found killed people.
The Hall of Remembrance is a totally dark room with eternal flame lit, and a list of all concentration camps inscribed on the concrete floor. Creepy.
The Children's Memorial is hair raising.
The entrance to the museum is free. It is located on Mt. Hertzl You can reach it by tram Nr.1 (I think it is the last stop) .
