Though I do believe the speakers make or break your experience at this little museum. It is quite staggering to spend time at his little gem. A brutal time in our history, this museum is filled with a great deal of memorabilia and history for everyone.

This Holocaust Museum is small compared to others we've visited. It is made up mostly of photographs which do tell the story of the Holocaust. The best part was the outstanding guide who brought the history to life. Recommendation: check on the times of the guided tours before you go.

My husband and I spent 3 hours at the Naples Holocaust Museum. There were options for a self-guided tour with head phones to narrate key exhibits or an hour tour led by a tour guide. We chose the later. We gained so much information and we're surprised how many survivors or people affected by the Holocaust live in the Naples... More

Thanks so much for spending the afternoon with us! We are very fortunate the the Holocaust Survivors and WWII Liberators in our community have been willing to share their stories and artifacts with us. We are very much a "local museum" - telling the big story of the Holocaust through the eyes of the men & women in our community... More

We did a guided tour of the museum with our 10-year-old son. It was very informative and really made you appreciate life. The museum shows the experiences of Holocaust survivors who are now Naples Florida residents. Would highly recommend if you're looking for something to do in Naples. Museum is on ground level of an office building.

Be sure to include a docent on your tour, I would have missed so much if I had just gone on my own. I wouldn't recommend it for children -- not because of the material, but because the artifacts require reading and study. Repeat: go with a docent.

Thank you for continuing to look for us. Unfortunately, approval for signs comes from the owner of the building (for anything on the building itself) or from the state (signs on the street). Hopefully when you are back in May we'll have something new to guide you! More

This small museum is chronologically arranged. The docent, Steve Brazilian took us from the beginnings of the Nazi movement,through the horrors of genocide, to the Nuremberg Trials and finally the liberation of the Jewish survivors. All along we learned the personal stories of the families who were affected by this horrific event in history.

A group of 25 visited the museum and each came away so enlightened with the details of what happened during those terrible years. Our guide was so informative. He was a great story teller. So glad we took the time to visit the museum.

Take the guided tour ($10) - one and a half hours but you can leave anytime you want. Very informative. So important to learn from the past in order to avoid the same mistakes in the future!
