  • i spent 2 years walking past, on my way to work, looking at this building with mixed thoughts wondering if i should go in. i was enticed in by an Anne Frank exhibition on the top floor. i was quite impressed with how the whole museum is set out. as you stand on the ground floor you can see up to the roof, each floor acting as a balcony around the perimeter so you can see to the centre of the ground floor. There is no means a shortage of history in this place. each floor is abundantly with so much to look at and read about. it's a sobering thought to how cruel human kind can be, yet through such hardship and torment, people can still find a hope a will to live through such oppression. Pacing my footsteps through the vastness of history, one can find themselves questioning their own values and the state of their own heart. This is a fantastically awesome place to visit. Sadly it has come from a dark era in history, but a necessary agenda to shine a light on the atrocities in which we as a human race should not have to experience again. Although it has been a while since my last visit, i thoroughly intend to return soon and take another walk through such a well planned out display of history.
  • Really enjoyed my visit, thought provoking and I learnt a lot. What is it with the everyone is a criminal security detail. I get it, I'm built like a tank, have a shaved head, and a beard. I also had a big smile on my dial, greeted people warmly, and was super non threatening. Was playing peekaboo with a toddler even. Noticed other comments about security. Ask yourself whether you want to be open if you don't trust people at all.
  • Moving informative deeply disturbing experience. A very well set out museum which profoundly deals with the history culture and emotional experiences of the ancient Jewish history. I am still living in the moment.
  • Good museum! Walked past and so good. Wish I went in earlier. So much good info. Will be back!
  • The staff were very friendly and shared their own experiences about the holocaust. They answered questions well and overall the experience was a intriguing one.
