Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center reviews
Worth taking the train and visiting this outstanding museum. It’s both detailed and experimental and painstakingly detailed. Perfect in every way. Plan on spending at least 3 hours. more »
We went to the museum largely because we wanted to see the Ruth Bader Ginsburg exhibit. Although that was a nice exhibit (a little smaller than we expected), it was the main exhibit on the Holocaust.... 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
