An incredible experience, not to be missed. If you take an audio tour allow plenty of time. We ran out of time much too early with three hours. They close right on time so pace yourself. On days when they are open until 2pm only check the website to see if the museum itself is open. On our first visit... More

This museum is a stirring reminder of the holocaust. The children's memorial is especially memorable, thousands of candles and haunting recitation of names. We rushed through in 3 hours, your could easily spend a whole day. The cafeteria was adequate but I would say this is fine dining.

For some places there are no words! I have been to several Holocaust museums, this is, by far, the most well done. There are many videos of survivors telling their horrific stories, sharing their memories, it is so personal and impossible not to be moved to tears! Don't miss the Children's memorial, outstanding! I personally don't think you need an... More

Never again. This is a museum to ensure that the world will never again let a madman take control of a continent. No matter your race, religion or ethnicity this museum is a must to visit.

Is it possible to publicize this too much? I don't think so. Never again. I couldn't even make it all the way through this place without weeping. I'm so sorry.

The physical setting designed by world renound architect Moshe Saftie is incomparable and embraces the visitor in a way that helps re-create some of the horror experienced by the victims. As well, the history of the time is described accurately to help explain how this horror happened. Also there are separate independent buildings that express the emotional aspects of the... More

This is an extremely informative and useful museum but I believe it should be totally free, especially given the nature of the exhibit. They charge for audioguides (NIS 25) and cheap maps (cheaply printed by costing NIS 12 to buy) saying that money does not fall from heaven and that they cannot survive of donations alone. However, their equipment is... More

Really well done exhibits and displays of man's worst era. Sadly reminds us that some things have not changed. Inspired by the bravery of many - did not really know the extent of the young Jewish resistance movement. Just so so sad. My grandparents left Poland/Russia before WWII but many in their families did not. How different the world might... More
