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.

A stunning part of history no matter what your religion. Immediately you are emotionally connected to someone who went through this horror, you view photos, videos, and most strikingly see and touch actual objects from the Holocaust. So much to see, so I will definitely go again. Compliments to all involved in this amazing experience. No cost to see this museum.
When you enter this memorial, close your eyes and listen to the words... You'll hear lots of anti- immigration & anti-gay speeches that blame them for stealing jobs, causing crime, and destroying country. Hitler promises to "make Germany great again!" Sounds familiar? The Syria exhibit at the end is also haunting... Why aren't we stopping this?
Well designed building with easy layout for touring. Free but limited tickets given out a day. We were able to attend a 'first person' talk given by a survivor which they have occasionally which was informative and educational. Would recommend for anyone interested in history.
So much to take in here! Gives you an unmasked view of not just The Holocaust, but many injustices of the world. Fantastic well put together exhibits. A must stop for your trip to DC.
An impactful experience, with much information that I didn't know, presented in a chronological manner that made sense of a lot of loose ends in my mind about the Holocaust. The self-guided tour of the permanent exhibition, which the staff estimates at "90 minutes," could easily take at least one full day. The guided tour of the special exhibition (currently "They Were Neighbors") is not to be missed, and barely scratches the surface of material on the lower level. My most important criticism is that there is little signage and no staff presence in the permanent exhibition to help you find your way if you end up in the wrong place in the chronology--or to answer questions along the way. A related complaint is that I learned only after she had left that I had missed the regular Sunday visit of a Holocaust survivor. Since museum guests must check in at the information desk to use their timed tickets, staff should take that opportunity to tell guests about any such opportunities.
