To be honest, the first part of the exhibition is the usual old generic Jewish history. But the photographic exhibition is really, really well done. It doesn’t focus on the Shoah, or the communities before. It looks at how, post war, the history is memorialised....More

This is a very nice museum. It's a little hard to find. Seems to have both a rotating and a permanent collection. Very different from most Holocaust Museums in that it is thematic and interpretive. However such museams benefit greatly from good guide materials.

I really enjoyed this museum, the building itself is a beautiful old mill, with the exhibition flowing efficiently through the interior. The exhibition mainly consists of photographs, with a few artefacts here and there which I found worked really well. There was a smaller exhibition...More

I stayed in a similar location to where you will be. It's a leisurely walk (maybe 30 mins max) or a 10 mins taxi ride. Enjoy :)
