The Museum provides a powerful lesson in the fragility of freedom, the myth of progress, and the need for vigilance in preserving democratic values. The Museum teaches millions of people each year about the dangers of unchecked hatred and the need to prevent genocide.
Great place to learn about the rise of nazism, world war 2 and the holocaust.
Speechless...stunning and very touching place
Thought provoking museum with age-appropriate display for kids on the first floor.
one of the most moving and powerful exhibits I have ever seen. The exhibit pieces alone stirs up emotions while the videos and graphic pictures will leave anyone without words
Some of the footage or photos may disturb you, but it's important to make yourself bear witness (as Eisenhower did) so we as humans can make sure these kind of atrocities don't happen again.
Beautiful and very moving. Met a survivor who was kind enough to share his story. He had us in tears.
Excellent show uniquely displayed yet a tad depressing given what this museum is all about
Powerful but very crowded. Great information for history lovers.
I couldn't help myself to cry. Im not a jew, im a human
Go early, or right when it opens, the memorial room is so powerful when it's empty
A very emotional museum experience. Give yourself plenty of time because you don't want to rush through.
Nicely organized museum. Go early to get a ticket with a time to come back for admission.
Emotional and powerful exhibit.
The most missed museum! This is hands down the best/well thought out collection of history that I have ever experienced
Great multimedia journal-based exhibit for kids.
Worth the trip. Take the tours!
A powerful experience to never forget. This is a must visit place.
A military ID gets you immediate entry.
This is one of the hardest museums to get through but one of the best presentations you will ever see. The room with the shoes will never leave my mind.
The elevators are claustrophobic for a reason. This museum may make you a bit uncomfortable, it's supposed to.
So much history and information in one building. I suggest going on the tour they offer.
A moving place. Sad but must see
Very nice museum.
About to enter...
Book your free ticket advance online, or go early in the day to see which time-slot tickets they are giving out.
DO NOT miss this exhibit! Get tickets ahead or arrive before 10am to claim a day pass. The line starts early but we got right in!
History is awesome
If you don't already have a ticket for the main exhibit, you will need to get on line EARLY to get a ticket for the same day. I'd recommend arriving at least 45 minutes prior to ticket dispersal.
Somewhat depressing but otherwise a great learning opportunity, and an amazing way to honor those who died
Excellent exhibits. Make sure to reserve tickets well in advance or get in line before they open to get tickets.
Get early in the morning to get a ticket.
Tears and the most humbling moment ever
Extremely thorough history of the holocaust; all aspects are included - the rise of Hitler, other groups persecuted by Hitler, what happened afterwards, etc; impressive amount of artifacts.
Beautifully done and devastating. Must see.
Be prepared for getting off the elevator. You're in for a shock.
It plays in remembrance of a hard time in our history as a planet
Free admission and an excellent museum.
A little depressing, but very informative.
One of the most amazing museums I've ever seen. Good job America.
Wait until the end to see what happens to the individual on your identification card, it makes the experience more impactful.
Amazing! Museum to know the true story!
What is there to say that hasn't been said. Though as far as museums go, there's a lot of reading and video watching. Not many displays.
This was awesome!
Must walk through Daniels Story
Very interesting. Never forget.
Get there a few minutes before the museum opens to beat the extremely long line. Try not to be bummed out for the rest of the day.
Very intense museum a bit long for one single visit but so interesting and emotionnal.
Great place for reflection. However, the upper level gets crowded at times, so much so we missed most of first section.
