Pay tribute to those who lost their lives during the Holocaust at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Adjacent to the National Mall, the museum serves as a memorial as well as a platform for documentation and study of that time. Travel through the exhibits chronologically, from the Nazi rise to power to the liberation. You can experience it all through a series of artifacts, photographs, and personal testimonies. Visit the Hall of Remembrance before you leave to light candles in memory of the victims. An exhibit called Remember the Children: Daniel's Story is designed for kids eight and older, and several other areas are suitable for young children as well as adults. However, children under 11 are discouraged from viewing the permanent exhibit due to the emotional and often horrifying subject matter.

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum reviews
This exhibit is extremely well done and a graphic reminder of how humans can both treat each other and also look the other way and fail to help each other. Well worth a couple hours. more »
I surprised my husband with a 4-day trip to DC for his 65th birthday. I had been there before and told him we needed to save the Holocaust Museum for our last day because it is so poignant and... more »
A very educational, emotional and eye opening exhibit. Highly recommended. Really brings home as much as possible to what it must have been like for the millions of people who experienced this... more »
Excellent experience to reflect about the horror that humankind is capable of. Daniel’ Story is very moving and its exhibition is very very well designed. The main exhibit is absolutely stunning. How they captured every single detail to give you the perspective of the Holocaust. Being able to see all the facts in chronological order it’s very impressive. Everyone should visit this museum. At the end of the main tour you’ll see a “memorial room” where you can have your prayers for all the innocent victims.
This place is an amazing testament to the horror and courage in the face of despair that humankind is capable of. The main exhibit is probably the cleanest and most well designed of all the museums near the national Mall. Beware this experience can take 3 hours and be emotionally draining, it's likely best to go in the morning and give yourself the rest of the day to process the experience and reflect. Be sure to visit the memorial/prayer room at the end of the main tour, it's a beautiful place of peace and a great way to wind down from the emotional and intellectual journey you're sure to experience here. Go ahead, change your life.
This museum was so well done. Incredibly thought-out with the flow and design of the entire museum. On a Friday in August we could go right in without reserving tickets in advance. The only thing I wish I’d known is to allot at least two hours, if you’re planning on really appreciating it.
Everyone should visit it's an amazing memorial so we'll designed. I will never forget Daniel. Please visit you get the tickets at the center information desk for free. However, you do need to ask for it because it gives you the time to go in due to the amount of visitors there. My 13 year old daughter and I only waited 15 minutes but there are amazing things like Daniel' story to do while you wait. If you can please go, we will "never forget"
Great museum to visit on a trip. Everything made you think deep. Stepping inside was like stepping into a time machine and going back to that time. Beautiful place to mark one of the most atrocious happenings in history. Will definitely go back if given the chance.
