Great museum. It directs one through a chronological passage of the Holocaust. Very powerful and somber. I appreciated the way it described the American reactions and ill actions when first hearing of the atrocities occurring throughout Europe. The final display was my favorite, highlighting numerous individuals who have contributed to save and hide individuals. Extremely powerful
It is necessary to visit! With kids, without kids, always always always. We have actually visited as a family with my daughter 2, who's a little to young to understand but my son of 11 understood just fine not exactly the why I am guessing but definitely the what. By the end I think the gravity of what happened finally dawned on him. The exposition is set up in the easiest way to follow from top floor all the way to the bottom. The exposition starts at the elevators where visitors pick up IDs of people who have been exterminated in the Holocaust and then you go in the elevator set up as a replica of a gas chamber to the top floor where the exposition begins starting from the very beginnings of the Nazi extermination of Jews going back to 1933 and the time that Hitler just came to power. The first boycotts, annexation of Czechoslovakia, Kristallnacht the response from the US and other nations in the world with news footage and photographs. The exposition continues through the World War II, ghettos, final solution, concentration camps, gas chambers, the box cars and it is disturbing to see even if you already know exactly what happen for kids it is very disturbing but while it is disturbing and scary it should be visited because forgetting this would be a crime against humanity. Final floor is the liberation and hall of remembrance. But it doesn't end there. There is a Daniel's house exhibit on the same floor, which is the distilled version of the whole museum exhibit down to a few rooms, which is a G rated version of the museum. I don't know if my son understood what has happened yet but I am sure it was good start.
A must see, very educational. I wish I had more time because there was a lot of detailed information that I'd like to study better, lots of reading to do. It gives the person a very small glimpse at what horrible experiences were levied on the victims of such prejudice. I think everyone should see this museum, regardless whether they think they can bear it. Think of all the pain and suffering the victims endured. Highly recommended.
This museum is put together very well and very respectful. A hard museum to go through, your heart breaks at every corner, but also important- so we never forget. There is so much to see and read MY SUGGESTION if you have the time take a floor a day, that way you would be able to read everything, see everything and watch the videos
Very good museum with a lot of documentation and photographs. I liked that they make you take an elevator to begin the tour and that certain very graphical videos were inside a box, so that if you go with young children and you don't want them to see them, they are easy to avoid. Good cafeteria on the outside of the museum, the only downside is that you have to go through security again before entering the cafeteria and again when you want to re-enter the museum. We spent about 1.5 hours
