    Go early to have enough time to see it all, videos and lots to read. No for kids. Teens and up.

    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.

    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.

    Remain silent in the museum and absorb the powerful experience. And then think about what you saw.

    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.

    A very respectful and artistic experiential exhibit for those looking to know more about the horrors of the Holocaust. Must do in DC.

    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.
