  • Our daughter, currently 20, has always had a fixation in Jewish culture and the holocaust. So on our visit to Chicago we took her. It was a very moving experience. Give yourself a couple hours to real...  more »

  • The Illinois Holocaust Museum & Educational Center definitely lives up to its name educationally, at least from my experience there. They had an exhibition about the capture of Aldof Eichmann, which I believe is open until 18 June 2017. It was a fascinating and informative experience. I believe strongly in visiting places that document important historical events. Particularly events like the holocaust which remind us that if society isn't careful to adhere to an objective moral standard, for instance the morals that America was founded on, then it's not hard to be sucked into madness and evil, which inevitably leads to committing heinous crimes.
  • You go through what people really went through. It is very moving, very well done museum. Never forget.
  • Very informative. Don't come here if you're feeling depressed, though. It will only make you feel worse. It's heavy stuff.
  • I think everyone should know history like this because it can happen to anyone and you can be the one to make the difference. I wish they had more about Jehovah's witnesses and the loyalty they showed in the concentration camps
  • Very moving. Museum focused on the experiences and reactions of specific individuals during 1933-1949. The atrocities were more presented as a backdrop to give context. The displays and multimedia were modern and effective, and the tourguide encouraged people in the group to share snippets of their own stories that were related to the events.
