    Thought provoking museum with age-appropriate display for kids on the first floor.

    Maggie MacG · December 27, 2015

    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.

    Byron Wilkes · December 15, 2015
  • J. T.

    Beautiful and very moving. Met a survivor who was kind enough to share his story. He had us in tears.

    Go early, or right when it opens, the memorial room is so powerful when it's empty

  • Gabriel H.

    A very emotional museum experience. Give yourself plenty of time because you don't want to rush through.

    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.

    T R · June 24, 2015
  • Kayla

    So much history and information in one building. I suggest going on the tour they offer.

    Kayla · June 19, 2015

  • James W.

    Book your free ticket advance online, or go early in the day to see which time-slot tickets they are giving out.

    James Wong · May 19, 2015
  • Aaron S.

    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!

  • Jason M.

    History is awesome

    Jason Morris · May 2, 2015
  • stepher

    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.

    stepher · April 21, 2015
  • Parker T.

    Somewhat depressing but otherwise a great learning opportunity, and an amazing way to honor those who died

    Parker T · April 20, 2015
  • John C.

    Excellent exhibits. Make sure to reserve tickets well in advance or get in line before they open to get tickets.

  • Jennifer

    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.

    Jennifer · April 6, 2015
  • Mike A.

    Beautifully done and devastating. Must see.

    Mike Allen · March 24, 2015

    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

    Wait until the end to see what happens to the individual on your identification card, it makes the experience more impactful.

  • Carlos Eduardo A.

    Amazing! Museum to know the true story!

  • Ryan K.

    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.

    Ryan K · December 29, 2014
  • Esther D.

    This was awesome!

    Esther DeJesus · December 19, 2014

    Very interesting. Never forget.

    Gilles Boeykens · December 13, 2014
  • Kelly W.

    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.

    Kelly Wong · November 6, 2014
  • Arnaud R.

    Very intense museum a bit long for one single visit but so interesting and emotionnal.

    Arnaud Réauté · October 14, 2014
  • Kelly W.

    Great place for reflection. However, the upper level gets crowded at times, so much so we missed most of first section.
