  • I’ll admit that I was hesitant to visit with younger kids, but the entire second floor is kid-friendly with interesting and interactive activities for the 5 or 6+ group. They’ve done a wonderful job.....  more »
  • Many interesting and thought provoking things to see. We did not have enough time and will have to go back. We happened on a free guided tour and the docent was very engaging.  more »

  • Spent about 3.5 hours here and still didn't get to see it all. Very educationally. There's a hologram experience presentation but if you have to choose between that and a guided tour I would say go with the guided tour. My family and I got a mini tour from Ron (while he rerouted us around the construction site), his parents are Holocaust survivors and gave us a little backstory which we all enjoyed learning about!
  • Totally worth it, a very inspiring and meaningful place, where you can get touch by the important history events that mark humanity. Con: there was a construction in process in the middle of the exhibition so we didn't get to experience an important part of the museum. Pro: The hologram was awesome
