Wonderful experience. Very clean facilities with friendly employees. Everything is authentic so it's an incredible thing to see. It really is educational and is a perfect place to learn about the Holocaust. You can take as long or as little time as you like. They even have educational films and clips on Tvs along the way.
Very well designed and curated museum. As you go through the rooms, you get a chronological history of the Jewish people before, during, and after the Holocaust. It's not just exhibits scattered around, the party through the museum is an educational journey, at one point going into a replica box car and alongside barbed wire underneath a guard tower. The videos that are played in each room are well produced, concise, informative, and worth watching. While the lessons of the Holocaust inevitably involve mature and serious subject matter, I feel like this museum does a good job catering to a wide audience. There is no entry fee and this museum is definitely worth the trip.
