Considering the relatively small size of this museum, there were an amazing amount of artifacts there. The docent was especially well versed relative to all aspects of the Holocaust.

We didn't anticipate the number of guests who would be joining the tour with over. With over people to listen, the docent explained his role and shared his wealth of info with us. The museum is mainly a large room divided into timelines and numbered to follow if you chose not to listen to the docent. I highly recommend that you arrive at tour times, 1 & 2:30 pm to listen to the docent. It is mostly photographs, most are very graphic. There are artifacts as well. One room is just the badges and stars that people wore...that room took my breath away...everyone was labeled. As the tour is mostly listening while standing, it is tiring. There are folding chairs for you to open as needed but hearing the pain that these people went thru, you might feel guilty taking a chair.
There is a lending library of DVD's and books for locals.
This is a must see for all adults and older teens.

My husband and I enjoyed our tour of the holocaust museum. The docent was so interesting to listen to. Some of the pictures were shocking, so brutal. He did mention the movie "The Pianist", which we watched that evening. So emotional. This museum is well worth the visit and is rated a must see if you are in or around Naples.

I homeschool our daughters and visiting the holocaust museum was incredible! The docent was very intelligent! We have been studying world war 2 and the artifacts that survivors have donated are incredible! Highly recommended!

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.
