  • Very interesting museum, larger than I thought it would be and very interesting. Would recommend this place for anyone to include young ones. Plenty of parking right across the street from the museum....  more »
  • What can I say? You will leave with so many emotions but with a knowledge of a time in history that must not be repeated.  more »

  • This is a great experience but it's sad that they omit the words God and lord from religious scrolls in a museum dedicated to religious history as not to offend. What's next leave the moon rocks out of the air and space museum so as not to offend those that believe the moon landing didn't happen. This is just another PC police move that is taking the subject matter out of history to please the people that likely wouldn't come here in the first place.
  • Loved learning about my heritage. My mother was almost crying after leaving. I was just pissed! Definitely a learning experience. I like that you learned not just about the entire Holocaust but individual people.
  • Very Emotional. Visited about 4 years ago. Highly Recommend for a lesson on History.
  • Creative displays. Expect to spend a lot of time reading all the captions. A little heavy on the Lithuanian experience.
  • Very sobering and extremely informative learning experience if a truly dark time in history.
