  • I visited this museum in early 2020 for the second time and it was just as powerful as the first time I'd was there in '17. The journey through the building sends a chill down your spine as you soak.....  more

  • The Museum of Tolerance is different from every other Holocaust museum I've been to (NY, Israel, DC). It's hard to explain but basically you and any people that walk in around the same time as you...

  • I suppose they get an E for effort on this review. Vehicle search from high school drop security guard: check. Complete search inside museum and all metal objects placed in bin because of walk through metal detector (w/wand) like Superior Court: check. Not being able to get in because I had cigarettes and lighter: priceless. I'm going to have to give this a Jay score of 0. Not recommended. The LAST time this place wastes my time. I heard it was overrated anyways. Not really a museum more of interactive slide show thing. What they need to put on the website is a warning of what not is allowed into the museum.
  • The museum was great in that it has a different way of telling the story of the Holocaust. It's more of a self-guided audio tour. There are also some very interesting screens that you can scroll up and down on that give you the history of different types of oppression in the United States. I wish I had more time at the museum since there's just so much to read.
  • Very informative and great experience, thanks to Rachael very helpful with questions we had! Thankful that we were able to listen in on a survivors story. Definitely recommend!
  • Amazing place. Walking through it all takes time so plan ahead. Was able to sit in on a holocaust survivors story. Last time I came was in elementary school. I was able to get tickets on groupon for my family.
