Overview

The Holocaust museum has multimedia exhibits, artifacts, archival footage, and testimony from local Survivors. The museum presents a detailed chronicle of the Holocaust appropriate for 5th grade students through adult. The final gallery provides a bridge from the past to today's issues of intolerance, bullying and genocide. In addition to our permanent displays, there is a gallery dedicated to temporary exhibits. See our website for upcoming exhibits.We are also home to the Louis Posner Memorial Library which has over 7,000 volumes relating to the Holocaust,Tolerance and Anti-Bullying.The library is a lending library containing memoirs, diaries, journals, maps, artwork, DVDs, CDs and artifacts.

We visited this out of the way museum recently. It is located in a beautiful, parklike venue. The museum itself is inside a former mansion. It was laid out very well, the information flowed nicely and it was very moving.

More than a Holocaust Museum. Survivors are often present to guide and mix with visitors. Center provides and promotes tolerance through a well structured educational program. After visiting the class rooms one is motivated to make a donation to support this program.
