Excellently put together museum/memorial tracing the rise of Nazism and it's devastating results. I don't know how to describe what Yad Vashem does to you, but if you are in Jerusalem, you must go. Take the light rail to Mount Herzl and there is a...More

Great experience, very sad and moving, it really gets to you how terrible the time was. I've been multiple times, and each time the tour guide shows us something different, because the museum is so large there isn't a chance to hear/read every single thing....More

All I can say is this museum carefully brings this sad issue to the forefront of our minds. It makes you think about all the atrocities the world is facing today.

I have been told that everyone who visits Israel should visit the Center. You do not realize how true this is until you take the tour. It is a very sobering visual experience. You need a good 3-4 hours to see the complete site.

There has been no experience in my life as intense and devastating as Yad Vashem. If you don't leave the children's memorial with tears flowing, then you are just not a mensch. I won't describe any details, as it must be experienced, but the combination...More

I consider myself to be well-educated about the Holocaust. I've studied the history of Germany in the 30s, and read many memoirs by survivors. I didn't expect to learn anything from this museum, but I did. The exhibit is extremely well organized and presented. They...More

Be emotionally prepared to be challenged on your visit to Yad Vashem. It took us 5 hours to tour the whole facility. What helped a lot, was the audio guides we booked online before we went there. The place is always busy, but we found...More

It's the kind of place that tears at your soul and leaves you speechless. The truth hurts but more importantly, the story must be told over and over and over as a reminder of what was and what human beings are capable of.

300% safe as long as you behave respectfully and abide with the place's rules. All Israel is like this, actually. It doesn't matter where you come from, what is your skin's color, religion or whatever else. Respect others... More
