A powerful & moving memorial site in remembrance of the Holocaust. The site is quite large, with a number of impressive exhibits, monuments & sculptures around the grounds in addition to the main museum itself, so make sure you give yourself a good few hours...More

Yad Vashem provides a very good presentation of the Holocaust and surrounding events. I found it very educational, while at the same time quite sad that this occurred.

Very solemn walk through the tragedy the Jews endured during Hitler's reign of terror. Humbling. The hall of the children speaks every child's name to age 18.

The gardens outside are nice, and architecture is top notch, and the history is well presented, especially given the sensitive and somber nature of the material.

A friend arrived late for this tour, and caught up with me mid-morning. She called my name, and I "jumped" and ran to greet her with a big hug. Even though I had seen her at breakfast. These exhibits are so emotionally charged that it...More

It's historical, with overpowering testimonials, facts, photos, and memorials. The Children Memorial is one of a kind. Numbing, impactful, perhaps life changing. Do not miss. It's free. Buy a map and or rent headset audio for guidance through the vast complex.

The easiest and least expensive way is to take the light rail until the last stop at Har Herzl. From there it is either a short walk of about 5-7 minutes or alternatively there is a free shuttle to get to the entrance from... More
Is it safe for a Palestinian to visit the memorial, because it's deeper into Israel. Is there anything I should know before going. Thanks

300% safe as long as you behave respectfully and abide with the place's rules. All Israel is like this, actually. It doesn't matter where you come from, what is your skin's color, religion or whatever else. Respect others... More
