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.

I visited for free while in DC for the marathon over the weekend. I was able to have the honor of talking to a holocaust survivor. I saw a couple of the secondary exhibits and was only able to see about 1/4 of the main exhibit in the nearly 3 hours I was there. I wish I had time to see more as everything was very well done and interesting. I had to leave to grab lunch well before I could finish seeing everything. I loved the place.
Very powerful museum. Well laid out, keeps the flow of the crowd moving at a nice pace. So much to read and videos to watch. You are not rushed along and can take your time. We only spent a few hours, but could have spent several more. If You want to really see and read all, I would say dedicate at least 4 hours.
Very very intriguing and moving one of the best museum in DC. They give you a book of someone from holocaust to go through the museum with and know their personal story. You can get the timed tickets right in front of the building and yes their free however you only need them May to Aug 31st their busiest season. The engraving if you want to see how money is printed is right behind the Holocaust ticket booth and can pick your times for a tour. I recommend during summer months get there before or right when their opening up. The easiest parking we found which is very limited is Regan building close to the white house and is reasonable
I was given the opportunity to visit this museum yesterday with my German III class and several other invited students. It was a great way to experience and learn about the Holocaust in Germany. I recommend this to anyone who wishes to take a step into history and learn about this tragic event. It is very important and I think everyone should see it at least once in their lifetime. Our class even got to speak with a survivor in the auditorium.
You have to get tickets online at 6 am in the morning the day you want to visit (tickets are FREE), else you can only see 2 floors of essentially nothing. Museum has a small cafe detached from the main building that serves all diets (Get there a little before noon). In the museum itself I enjoyed the 14 minute prelude video to how Hitler even came to power. You embody the journey of everyone who suffered through the holocaust - a must see for D.C.
