  • 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!

  • Extremely detailed exhibition on the Holocaust, unfortunately the start and end of ww2 got a bit less attention than we would've liked to see. We didn't take an (audio) tour and still took several hours to go through it. If you're interested in this part of Jewish history this is a highly recommended place to visit. When you come by car, don't bother with the on-site parking which is unfriendly priced, but drive just past the entrance to find loads of free spots to put your car.

  • Yad Vashem was a sobering reminder of the Holocaust of 75-80 years ago. I would recommend it for every teenager and adult -- lest we forget! There are no other words to describe it!

  • A place you simply have to visit! A very thorough and detailed museum and memorial to Holocaust and the six million killed Jews. A lot of facts and stories are told here. You can easily spend several hours at the indoor museum and then there are the garden and many outdoor monuments too, so if possible it's advantageous to share the visit over 2-3 times.
