I really enjoyed this museum. It is a stark reminder of what the Jewish people have had to endure. The reality of the suffering and struggle is heartbreaking.

Yad Vashem is more than a memorial to the millions who perished in the holocaust. It's also place that recognizes the righteous among the nations who risked their lives and livelihood to save those under persecution. This is a place of education -It's a place where survivors of the holocaust stories are told and their survival celebrated . There is... More

This is a place that cannot be missed while visiting Jerusalem, it will not be a joyful fun experience, yet still it needs to be seen. There is, I believe, an age restriction of 10 upwards because of some of the graphic portrayal of this horrendous, shameful event in history. My wife and I were there with a guide and... More

The architecture of the museum is very calm and peaceful. The grounds are set so that you come through the walkway of heroes and to the children's museum. The museum has been curated really well with witness testimonies, photos and factual information. All signs are in English and Hebrew. It is eerily beautiful but also very emotional. It is not...

A graphic portrayal of the Holocaust backed up by personal interviews and photographic evidence shot by Germans themselves, it is difficult to understand how such cruelty and savagery could be perpetrated by a "civilised" society. Clearly the general population of Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Hungary etc was complicit. People from all around the world were there when we went. An absolute... More

If you are to understand a real tragedy of Jewish diaspora and why Israel is so crucial for Jews around the world this a place to be. Truly heart breaking. It also sheds a light on today's conflicts across Europe - war legacy is still heavily entrenched in people's minds thus shaping individual perceptions and altitudes.

This place, I'm afraid, transcends review. You have to go there to see it, and then reflect on this 20th century disaster for mankind. Stunning, in all senses.

Yad Vashem is an absolute MUST see when in Jerusalem! We recommend the headsets so you can get the most from this experience. Give yourself lots of time...this cannot be rushed.
