    Extremely humbling and powerful museum! Listening to the stories of survival and loss is heart wrenching. The shoes have a smell that you will never forget, which makes them very powerful! Allow yourself a lot of time to really take in every element of this museum.

    An incredibly sobering walk through the horror of the Holocaust. This museum contains videos, photographs, and real relics from World War II. Tickets are free, though in the summer you may need to reserve tickets. As you move down 4 floors of the museum, you move forward in history through the war, seeing the increasingly horrific truths. Starting with the rise of Hitler and culminating with the haunting concentration camps, each floor describes the atrocities and war crimes. What a powerful experience, now 6 years since the last time I was here.

    Powerful and moving experience that is accessible to individuals with hearing loss. I went there and used an induction loop assistive listening device. The device was found quickly and worked properly. Sound quality varied based on exhibition space. It was not functioning in the temporary exhibit, but open captions were available. The employees were friendly, though they could not answer questions about device.

    I highly recommend this museum. It’s extremely well done. Walks you through the years before the war, so you can really understand the timeline and how things slowly went from bad to horrible. It was very well done and educational. And I felt like the message wasn’t just about the Holocaust, but more about awareness, and preventing genocide, and hatred. Extremely moving.

    Heart wrenching, graphic, harrowing, and human. A beautifully constructed museum dedicated to one of the most horrific subjects. Among the best portrayals of the Holocaust I have seen in a museum which manages to really capture the human element of the period. I would recommend this museum to anyone. It is informative, educational, and impeccably presented. Two things that stand out to me are 1) the collection of shoes and 2) the “passports” you get with details of real Jewish people from this time.Because it is so popular there can be a line to get in on some days (especially in peak tourist periods) so be prepared to wait or to go at an off-peak time.
