  • Very informative and gripping museum. There was much new to learn even for those who already know a lot about the Holocaust. Visited a number of Holocaust museums and this was guaranteed to be one of the better. They had a new exhibition about Adolf Eichmann when we were there that was really (!) good!! Highly recommended!

  • The museum is put together nicely and you move through the exhibits in an orderly fashion. Guides are available or you can proceed on your own.  more »
  • I believe this is the 2nd largest Holocaust museum in the US and worth hours of travel to visit. Skokie at one time had the largest concentration of Holocaust survivors in the world, outside of Israel...  more »

  • This was a very good museum to go to, particularly for those who are less familiar with the Holocaust and want an overview of the beginnings, actual events, and aftermath. You can go through quickly, although I would recommend a couple hours to really absorb it. They also have a nice set of rotating exhibits that focus on human rights issues. If you're in the city, it's also about an hour and a half bike ride from downtown via the north branch trail.
  • Moving and informative testimonial in the fight against intolerance and hate.
  • An unbelievable and unforgettable experience. Plan to spend half a day here and to have your emotions rocked.
  • Very informative. Nicely set up. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Geared more towards Jr High aged and up as it was a little above my 9 year old daughters head.
  • Beautiful tribute to one of the most tragic events in human history
