Beautiful experience that no one should miss. The Holocaust was a terrible time in history and this museum offers our community the opportunity to educate ourselves about the events that took place during WWII, in a clear and concise manner. The museum has free admission on Thursdays and Sundays, and appointments are available online. There is a entrance fee on other days of the week but it is worth your time and money. You will come out with more knowledge and respect for humanity.
The Holocaust Museum is quite sombering however, it is informative and detailed. The traffic flow within the Museum wasn't bad. Parking is a challenge, and you're needing to reserve your spot before they allow you in. Security is higher in this Museum than most throughout SoCal. It costs $1 to use some earbuds and walk around with a recording about each specific section. Highly recommend that. The details on the recording explain extensively on what each photo and item is as you're walking through. The Museum begins with how and why the Jews were targeted and the steps taken to hold them accountable. There are individual stories to be heard, and graphic photos to assist in understanding the full picture. Staff is nice and allow us to walk through on our own. There wasn't any sort of problem during my experience through the Museum.
