  • So much more than your typical holocaust story. This takes adults and any age child through an experience that will leave you with a broken heart and a sense of pride at the same time. Engaging for all ages, lots of things to see and learn that you probably haven't before. Dont forget to take a walk into the cattle car used to transport prisoners! Wow!
  • This museum was so very well done. I got there early and they have a dedicated parking lot with ample number of spots. They opened right on time and the three young people at the desk were helpful. I opted to skip the film at the beginning and worked my way through the museum. They have it in chronological order and focus on the Holocaust in different parts of Europe so I learned a lot. The artifacts were interesting but it was the photos that really struck you. It was a moving experience and free (accept donations).
