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.
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
Muy buen museo! El recorrido es largo
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.
Um dos melhores museus de Washington. Se você quer saber sobre o holocausto e o impacto dele em todo mundo, visite o lugar. E o melhor: é de graça
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.
Crude, completely describes brutality lived at those war times, hopefully will never happens again
Must stop here in DC. Daniels story is a must for all students.
Amazing museum, beautiful and touching. Recommend it to everyone, although it might be too graphic for small children.
Daniel's Story is great for kids 7 & up.
Great museum. Must see. Very sobering and somber experience.
Take the tour. Its well worth it. I spent about 3 hours in this museum, it has 4 stories full of the history of the holocaust and WWII in general. Leaves you speechless
Vale muito a visita, que é gratuita. Fiquei emocionada inúmeras vezes.
One of the most emotional and humble places I have ever been. Anyone that goes to DC *must* visit to gain perspective of what people are capable to do
Good museum with purchase ahead tickets
Touching place.. Hard not to cry in here
A very somber reminder that WWII killed more than just soldiers.
Pesada a atmosfera aqui...
Best museum in town! Very tough though, u'll might not hold your crying but worth the visit.
Reserve space in advance
Good displays but very repetitive. Keep moving past crowds whenever possible.
If you are into history, than this is surely the place to visit. I hope that everyone sees this Memorial Museum someday... - Penina Mezei
Do not miss visiting this place if you are planning your DC trip. Excellent exhibits.
Take your time as there is a lot to take in. Powerful and emotional. ..moving.
The best time to come is before May!!! It's not part of the smithsonian !! Govt and Military skip the line, special entry 4 u!
