The horrendous events that took place during the Second World War had left the world broken. The atrocities of the Nazi’s had left scars on the entire world. The US Holocaust Museum was set up in order to pay homage to all those who lost their lives at this horrible time.
The US Holocaust Memorial is an attempt to remember the atrocities and make sure that such a horrible catastrophe never happens again. The displays are touching and at times gut wrenching and there is a lot to learn about the era of the Holocaust here. It isn’t suitable for children but youngsters should most definitely pay their respects with a visit while in Washington D.C.

This 4 hour tour is perfect for you to witness the magnificence of all the famous points of the city. Right from the Beach Loop which makes the sun kissed city such a delight to the City loop that gives it the urban landscape and the Miami Loop which
If you only have time for two museums, add this to that list (Also add the National Museum of African American History and Culture too). It's just off the National Mall by the Tidal Basin and one of the most inspiring and reflective museums in the city. This museum takes between 3-5 hours to really go through every exhibit. There are a few non-ticketed exhibits in the lobby, but you'll need a free ticket to get in the permanent exhibit (Unless you go in off season January-March. Then you can walk right in). The permanent exhibit takes you to the top floor and you walk yourself down three floors as you understand how the Holocaust happened and what you can do today to make sure it never happens again. I wouldn't take very small kids here yet due to the sensitivity of the material, but it's vital to take them at some point so they know we must NEVER do this again as humanity.
Extremely informative. This museum is one of the best in D.C. It is free (sometimes you do need tickets) and located just off the Mall. You can get through this in 2-3 hours. I recommend taking Smithsonian Metro station, or if you're on the mall somewhere, you can take the Circulator bus to it. When you arrive, you will be directed up to the top floor. Make sure to grab an 'identification card', you'll see what I mean when you get there. The content is great for history buffs and people who may not know a lot of details about the Holocaust alike. While this museum is open to everyone, I recommend personal discretion when it comes to children under the age 7. It is very educational but can be scary at times just purely due to photos and content, not to mention mood lighting and presentation. However, this is a must-see for anyone in the D.C. area with some time.
Really thoughtfully done. I have been to Aushwitch and the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem and would really recommend this one too. They go into a lot of depth to bring out the narratives of the time so you understand the horrors committed. Was impressed with the number of school groups I saw there. So important to never forget.
If you're in DC this is a must to see. Make sure to go early and get tickets because by the end of the day there is a chance they might not have any left. Tickets are free so there is no excuse to not go and learn a vital part of history. There are many exhibits and dedicate a good chunk of time to really be able to take in all of the information that they have to offer.
Very well designed. Really captivating and possibly one of the best Holocaust museums. No one does it better than Smithsonian. Not to mention it's FREE. The tours could have been a lot better though.
