    In my humble opinion this is for middle school age children and up, and then with due caution to their level of maturity. The museum has done a wonderful job to provide continued education on this sub...  more »

    This museum is superb! Stories, artifacts and displays depicts the time period with local families showcased. I have been to the national holocaust museum and this museum was much more informative.

    This is a neat museum, and an excellent tribute to remember all those who lost their lives tragically during the Holocaust. Much of the exhibit still seems to be a work in progress (being some areas) were under construction. The automatic lighting or motion lighting is cool and energy efficient, but did not always work...so you have to dance around in the darkness before some of the lights turn on when walking through the exhibition. I would be anxious to return down the road to see if any improvements are made.

    Very Humbling experience. I enjoy many things about history always intrigued by the past events. I read books and seen documentaries on the holocaust, however, this museum had real life pictures and recreations of the horror they lived. Some were real as the were sent from Germany. It has always sadden me the way the Jewish were mistreated(which is putting it mildly), the thing that hit me hardest were the children who were shown no mercy, they too were starved and put to the same labor. There were some drawings the children did, and they drawn what they seen, Death, murder. Our children draw a house, a tree, their families, but this is not what these child saw or drawn. Whether you`re a fan of history of not, its a must see. Its free to get in and free parking!!

    Not every city is blessed to have a place like this, so I enjoy taking my family and friends here who visit. It is a place that honors those that suffered and perished, and it does so with all due reverence and respect. However, it is also a place of great uplifting- with stories of love, hope, courage, and the unbelievable will to survive.

    I haven't been to any other Holocaust museums before, but this one was very informative. The location in Shockoe makes it easy to check out on a day of other touristy activities. The museum works off of a donation model, but is technically free.
