  • My writing skills can't adequately describe how great this museum is at presenting such a tragic time in history in a clear, educational and moving way. 
  • I visited the Museum twice with a mixture of feelings. The saddest thing is to see the list of children killed during the Holocaust. The name of them is repeated out loud the whole time and designed as a reminder to mankind not to let something like this happen again.

  • I visited the museum on a rainy Saturday and was there about 3 hours. I was surprised about how large the museum was and was very impressed with the exhibits. The whole experience was haunting and sad...  read more »
  • Very informative, with lots of firsthand accounts, stories, interviews, and news articles. Definitely will leave you with a heavy heart, and I wouldn't recommend it for young children (under 10 or so) because of the graphic nature. I would recommend it to anyone in the area looking to do something unique - especially for free. Minus one star because there were lots of rooms under construction, and because the information was presented as paragraphs of small text under each picture. Each room was filled with pictures, so we got a bit overwhelmed, even though I'm an avid reader. More visuals or interactive material & artifacts would be helpful.
  • The Virginia Holocaust Museum is almost a hidden gem in Richmond. Even though I grew up in Metro Richmond, I never went here on any school trips or ever really heard it mentioned. I understand it's a difficult subject to talk about, but it's one that does need to be recognized. The museum is well laid out with interesting items throughout the exhibit. It provides a 3D view of the devastation the persecuted faced.
  • Very well thought out and organized! I wish we had more time to see the upstairs exhibit. We came too close to closing time. :)
  • Very historic and sad collection of pictures during ww2
  • Extremely well done. Never been so satisfied with somewhere that left me so depressed. Would return.
