The museum is small but powerful. A holocaust survivor was there to sign a book she had written. The woman at the front desk was welcoming and informative. They have survivors giving lectures and have groups that can come and hear the survivors speaking. Would recommend bringing tissues.

When I first went,they had just started revamping the mansion.Staged the displays.They had awesome large artworks on the grounds.Local students from schools collected coins and bought flower seeds for the gardens. It is a must see,whether you are Jewish or not.Just to know and understand the horrible history they faced.

This is a wonderful little museum about the greatest human tragedy. It is especially relevant today as the hatred of the Jewish People has not gone away but simply morphed into the current form and is growing once again. First it was religious hatred of Jews and then it was racial hatred of Jews as depicted in the museum. Now... More

The docent led tour brings you to view the Holocaust on a very personal level. The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center attracts people of all ages and backgrounds to use history to learn very important life lessons.

I have been to Holocaust museums all over North America .In my opinion every person on this planet should go to this or a similiar museum to insure that everyone understands what happened in Europe in the 30's and 40's.

Yes, the Holocaust was real and antisemitism is still with us. This museum, set in the beautiful setting of Glen Cove is a beautiful yet painful reminder of those facts...filled with photos, journals and first hand accounts of the barbarity of Nazi Germany and those who allowed these atrocities to take place and turned a blind eye to it.
