We did not have much time to take in everything at the museum but what we did see was wonderful. Very informative for people who don’t have much experience in learning about the Holocaust. Great displays. My 15 year old son was very into reading everything and learned so much. I would definitely go back if I was in the area again.
This was a interesting stop on our trip. We didn't get the chance to make it to the National Holocaust museum, so we decided to stop in at this one. The self guided tour was helpful as you had the reference book to go along with each exhibit. You can tell that care was taken with each area to provide a detailed experience. Also, the propaganda exhibit on the second floor that was visiting was eye opening even for todays events. Not being from Richmond, it can be kind of a pain to get to, but it was worth the stop.
