Owner description: The Museum features two exhibits. One Day in the Holocaust explores three key events that occurred on the same day. It answers the question, "How could this have happened?" The second exhibit, located in the gallery changes often and presents a "special" exhibit. This Museum is open during the construction of our new building across the street.

Well worth the price for 8 dollars per person. They tell a piece of the story in a well versed documented way. Audio is given to each person. You go at your own pace. It is told in "the day of". Well done.

The traveling exhibits are worth going there. They have four per year. They also have educator night to prepare teachers who teach this subject and teachers get to see the exhibit for free. I've also seen other speakers (Carl Wilkins) speak to a captive audience.

Museum very small, but very informative. It was, as expected, thought provoking, but I think they could do more to get across the impact and scale of events. Having been to both Auschwitz & Birkenau I have seen the scale of what happened, but unfortunately this museum didn't get this across as much as I feel it should have done.

A definite 'must see' though, it definitely makes you reflect and contemplate.

This is a really small place. We went there because we were waiting for our time slot for the 6tth Floor museum. This museum is right around the corner. It does not take much time so plan something about 1 to 2 hours - might be less if you are not reading every item. But it gives you a good feeling for what happens in the past and especially it shows that even the USA closes both eyes about the holocaust.

You won't have fun at the Holocaust Museum but it is an experience I wouldn't miss out on. I haven't been to the Museum in DC and I know this one does not compare but I still think it is always a good reminder of what difference it makes to stand up when something is going wrong, not to mention to remember the lives of those lost and changed as a result of this horrible event in human history. The museum is small but it focuses on this important part of history and even some positive stories of human triumph and bravery are included to remind you there was good in the midst of all the bad. They have this listening device which you carry with you throughout the exhibits and you can put in a number if you want to know more you key in a number. I wasn't a big fan of this because sometimes it gave you more detail than you wanted, but it was nice for the interactive element. It was touching and inspiring as well as sobering, I would recommend going once.
