  • This museum was not at all what I expected, but amazing. Tours are given in groups and you walk through a narrative timeline with videos and recordings. Very well done. There are also daily speakers.  more »
  • The museum of tolerance has found a special way to tell the story of the horror of the Holocaust. One leaves with an understanding of the how and the why. The experience is heart wrenching and powerfu...  more »

  • The exhibits are very thought provoking. A Holocaust Survivor spoke on the day I was there. His story was amazing. I have never heard a story like this first hand, in person. If you get a chance during your visit, it is very much worth the extra time. Be prepared to be impacted in a significant way by many of the things you see. Most of the material is very vivid. I didn't have time to see everything. I will definitely visit again on my next trip to LA.
  • This is the best place you can visit locally to learn about the Holocaust. I didn't have the chance to view the Anne Frank exhibit sadly, but I will return to view it. Going down the ramp to the lower level for the Holocaust museum they have pictures of survivors, both dead and alive, lining the walls with their stories, birth/death years, and what they want people to learn. After the Holocaust part of the museum you can choose to go through 2 doors. Prejudice or nonprejudice and then you go through a whole exhibit dedicated to those things. I loved the experience.
  • A liiiiiittle bit outdated. With that lone critique out of the way, the holocaust exhibit is incredibly powerful. It kind of weighs on you but it really shouldn't be any other way. Then you get a holocaust survivor who shares experiences that make you feel silly for complaining about the traffic on the way there. Really makes you grateful for what you have and reminds you how important it is to simply coexist peacefully and respectfully.
  • If you have a chance to catch one of the survivors speaking, don't miss it. It's heartbreaking and yet wonderful to hear them retell their stories. As a whole, the museum is informative and enlightening. Renee Firestone is 94 years old and you would think she's half that when you see and hear her. Without a doubt, she is the survivor you want to catch. The docents are more than willing to answer any questions you may have and some you didn't know you had. The basic structure of the museum is a bit confusing. You don't always know when it's time to move to the next station on the Holocaust tour. That in no way takes away from it being a must see if you have young children and want to spark a conversation about freedom, history, prejudice, and/or hate. Everyone should make the trip at least once.
  • The world would be so much better if everyone took the time to visit a place like this. The emphasis on learning from history is so important. Although you will learn about horrific moments in world history here, you will walk out with a renewed sense of hope and desire to make positive change in the world.
