  • Important place of reflection. All very well mounted, and you can learn a lot. The originator of the site know all about history.

  • The Museum is hidden, does not have an entry that indicates that it's there, so pay close attention. The museum itself is great you immerses in the situation that these people lived, the collection is pretty cool. Too bad when I went were not showing any video in the living room. Also the local security is very strict so don't be surprised you have to leave all your belongings and go through a metal detector.

  • It's a very interesting visit. I was with my wife and both left thrilled with the stories. The visit was guided, which gained even more. I confess that at times her eyes filled with tears by the stories and testimonies of survivors, making us reflect even more about what it's been. Recommend the guided tour, which should be scheduled in advance, because immersion in facts is greater. The Museum is not very big, but you use all the senses as you advance in the story and it enriches the experience. Anyway, I recommend to all!
