  • Deeply moving, and an honest reminder of human nature. The museum does a great job at sharing the history and timeline of this horrific event, and I was pleased to learn it is free to the public. Our visit started with a short 15 minute introductory video that really set the tone. After, at the front desk, we were given a tour book and were able to lead ourselves through the numbered exhibits. That was neat to me because we could go at our own pace. Really enjoyed the visit, and would recommend it to anyone interested.
  • This museum is a must see. The Holocaust of the Jews was a tragic time in history but must not ever be forgotten. The video at the beginning of the tour is wonderful. You get to hear real stories of survivors of the Holocaust. The staff are very knowledgeable and the museum is amazing. Great for a group or go alone. Museum is free admission and they do take donations.
  • 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.
  • Very well thought out and organized! I wish we had more time to see the upstairs exhibit. We came too close to closing time. :)
  • 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.
