Yad Vashem, Jerusalem Reviews - Write a Review

  • Be prepared to stay here for 4 hours. Make sure you come early and use guided tour. You have a free shuttle from the station and the visit to the museum is free. You will leave with a heavy heart and many questions, but it is a good start for those who want to know the history build from here.

  • Heavy place. Great place to learn history. Opens a few new questions. Generally easy to get to via taxi or public transportation. Admissions is free, but a map is 12 shekels and the guided tours are fee base. Sell guided tours are easy, too, but you'll probably get a lot of history-gap-filling with the guided tours.

  • Such an amazing place! Very detailed, every element in the museum is dead on - and the tour guides are very good at what they do! One thing though. If you are planning on spending a long period of time there, take into consideration that the food is very expensive- and it is really bad- such a shame!

  • Fantastic world class museum. Don't miss the valley of communities and the children's memorial.

  • Excellent museum. Entered with great expectation, left with a heavy heart.
