    This is a sad museum.. its free entrance .. just terrible what these people went thru and the lot that I didn't know that happened
  • Andrea D.
    The permanent exhibits must be seen.

    Overall an okay museum. Facts about how hitler came to power and the consequences of people's inaction to help minorities were powerful. Failed to give specifics as to why Jews were targeted.

    Do not forget to buy your tickets before (on line).
  • Eduardo I.
    Visit the permanent exhibition. You can get the tickets online, https://www.etix.com/ticket/online/. It's a sad museum, but it will motivate you to fight for social injustice and discrimination.
  • Lenny G.
    A very respectful and artistic experiential exhibit for those looking to know more about the horrors of the Holocaust. Must do in DC.
  • Travis O.
    They only give out a small amount of tix for the main exhibit daily, and the other exhibits pale in comparison. If you can't get tix for the main exhibit, don't go.

    The whole tour experience preserves the memory of holocaust victims like never before.
  • Asaf B.
    Great museum, very educational. You should get a bit early to get tickets to other exhibits. Also we really liked that they had a memorial wall about other nations who had genocide

    Hey look into the truth of humanities deepest and darkest side. As well as a look at the incredible resiliency of human beings will to survive

    It was pretty good but the only thing to do that wasn't $ was a thing called Daniels story (which was great) and a video downstairs. But those two things were really pretty good.

    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.

    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.

    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
