Small but powerful. Well worth the time and small fee. Docent was excellent. I learned a lot. My 16 year old son was so moved that he thinks he might like to study the topic in more depth when he goes to college.

For a small museum there is a lot to read and look at. I really enjoyed the tour and feel the history is so important to know. I have been to the camps in poland and the history here matches what i have seen before. Worth a trip for family

The Holocaust Museum in Naples is located in only a few rooms but offers a ton of information and many artifacts, over 1,000 World War II and Holocaust artifacts and original photographs. You can take both self-guided and Docent-led tours. The Museum has afternoon hours and offers a docent tour at 1:30PM. I strongly recommend taking the docent tour if possible. The tour lasts about an hour but the docent is very knowledgeable and covers the holocaust period with lots of facts.

This not a place you come to enjoy, but to become more educated about the Holocaust. My wife and I have been to many Holocaust Museums and continue become more educated with each one we go too. This museum has an amazing story to tell and a wonderful display of pictures and artifacts during the period of time. Our tour guide was just incredible in relaying to us the different happenings at each of the concentration camps. A must see is a room of pictures taken by an army photographer that handed over to the museum undeveloped pictures of one of the liberated camps.
