No words can describe the emotions/ turmoil that Yad Vashem brings up to the surface of our consciousness . The museum is sober and well planned. It's all there: the life before the rise of nazism, the implementing of the racial laws, the massacres, the...More

This is a must see while in Israel. It is informative and educational. It is also stark and very sometimes painful to see some of the sections. But we wouldn't have missed it.

this is the place to learn about the holocaust of jews. It gives an in depth and unbiased background. The museum is very big, spending at least 3 hours is a must.

Not a lot we can add to the other reviews. Understand that since it's a must see in Jerusalem, it can be pretty crowded. The traffic flow in the main area isn't very accommodating if there is a crowd. Also, we love to walk, but...More

It was my second visit at Yad Vashem and it was as moving as the first one. You need to have about 3 hours to see all places and to stop to watch videos. Be sure you see Children's Memorial and trees at Righteous Among...More

A truly moving experience. One cannot digest it all in one visit. 2 hours was all I could manage in one go because I read everything and took it all in. One could stay longer if you scanned over everything more lightly. This is a...More

The easiest and least expensive way is to take the light rail until the last stop at Har Herzl. From there it is either a short walk of about 5-7 minutes or alternatively there is a free shuttle to get to the entrance from... More
