Yad Vashem, Jerusalem Reviews

  • A unique, remarkable, vast museum with so many personal and interesting stories and explanations. We spent 3 hours and just couldn't take any more in. Worth several visits. Take a sweater, it is icy cold inside. An easy 5 minute walk from the end of the Light Rail line.

  • Место несёт свою атмосферу и даже после 4-но посещения остаётся недосказанность проблемы Шоа. Тут работают потрясающе отзывчивые люди. Встреча с пережившими катастрофу не оставляет никого равнодушным. Горячо рекомендую добавить в список посещения всех гостей Израиля. Вход бесплатный

  • The building is stunning, it's pure art. And the park near it has a great landscape and pine smell. As for the exhibition, you simply have to see it for yourself.

  • Since I was recovering from too much walking the previous day, I only went into the entrance and gift shop. Hopefully I can return one day and really see everything. The gift shop is huge and has a wide variety of items in addition to books and t-shirts on the Holocaust. You can probably purchase all of your gifts there. And, of course, the U.S. dollar goes far there. If you purchase a large amount, ask for the VAT form for non-Israeli citizens. That way you can get the extra tax back when you leave the country. Although I purchased a wide variety if items as gifts and for myself, this book pictured may be my favorite. I highly recommend it.

  • One of the best museums in Jerusalem, full of information and a big part of the narrative of the Jewish people. To be honest, I thought I saw and learned all that is there to know about the Holocaust, but still.. walking in the exhibitions made me shed a tier. take the morning to learn, the entrance is free of charge and you would only pay for the audio guide. definitely worth a visit!
