It was a really touching experience. Yad Vashem is a so well done Memorial. We took our time here, we went on a thursday that they close at 8 in the afternoon (other days I think it is at five). Every room has the explanations of all the photographs and items they got in it, with testimonials of the survivors, and recreations of some of the gheto's streets, for example. We did it with an audio guide (rent at the lobby) and we recommend it, because there is much information to process. Even the corridors between rooms have a history to tell you. You should be prepared to spend all your day in here. Is really a reminder of what people had gone through and it will for sure touch your heart.

This has to be the most moving thing I have ever experienced. Leave yourself at least a couple of hours and take your time. Its probably best to do this in the afternoon without anything scheduled after it, since you will probably be emotionally drained.

We really enjoyed Yad Vashem but by the end we were totally exhausted. Still I would reccomend everyone to go atleast once.

Entry is free and the audio guide only cost 20NIS which is so cheap for something like this. It is easily accesible with the new tram system also.

The information, original artifacts, survivor testimonies and personal possessions are unrivaled to the other holocaust museums I have visited. Really incredible to see.

Eat before and take lots of water because it honestly took us over 5 hours to get through. That is obvioulsly a variable with each guest but be prepared.

The museum is incredibly well laid out and thoughtfully designed and incorporates exhibits, multi-media, and re-creations. It is a lot of information to process and its hard to feel overwhelmed by the amount of information in addition to the emotion it evokes. My only advice is to try to go when there are no school groups. Trying to navigate the zig-zag design of the galleries with school groups makes things much harder. I was at the museum the day before it was vandalized.What a shame.

This is a well presented exception memorial to the holocaust. It is so detailed that you need plenty of time when going through. By the end of our visit I could take no more as it was emotionally draining.
