Holocaust Museum LA reviews
Very moving. I like how the displays have been ordered chronologically, it's free, but the suggested donation is $ 10, which is frankly a bargain for what you get. The audio guide was extensive and... more »
I have always had a historical interest in the Holocaust and have visited numerous museums and monuments to this horrific period in relatively recent history, including visits to the Auschwitz and... more »
This places fun to go to because of all the beautiful artifacts.The staff is also really amazing! Something that I find really interesting about this place is that they have some of the artifacts that is in Auschwitz. There is also a lot that this museum offers to the community around it. They have summer programs for youth to express themselves creatively and still educate the people there! Also I’m really great thing is that there is a beautiful park right next to the museum! I am beyond grateful to have access to such and amazing place and educational as well.
I had the honor of visiting the museum. The entrance is free but a small donation of $10 is petitioned, which is a small price considering the amount of information present. I tend to take pictures but due to the history behind the event decided to not take them. The staff is extremely friendly and courteous, including the security staff. Overall the museum has several galleries that show you the beginning, middle, and the end of the holocaust period, however, it allows you to delve deeper into that period by giving you items, paperwork, pictures, letters of those that endured it, perished, and survived it. The museum accomplishes what it was designed to do, remember the time period the many good turned a blind eye.
