    An inspiring place that's really well done and makes you think
  • Madeley G.
    The emotional power it has is incredible. Margit Meissner (95 year old Holocaust survivor) was there and sharing some stories along the exhibit. I would recommend everyone to go there.
  • Pam C.
    I was thought it was very intense. I really think twice about taking anyone under 13 in there. But great way to capture that moment in history.

    So powerful. A must see when coming to DC.

    Takes 3-4 hours to experience the whole museum. Learned a lot about history of Holocaust and how it impacted the world. Some exhibits are difficult to swallow but necessary to see.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
