Lots to read and see, I didn't see the gardens as it was cold and wet but plan to go back when there is a speaker on plus visit the gardens. I found it very moving. The man that did the tour was very informative, really... More

Today my husband and I visited the most moving memorial we have ever experienced. I am not able to find words that truly describe this place. Gardens are tranquil and quite. So much time to think and reflect on what you have experienced within the centre. We think we know our history and that of the Jewish communities but I... More

Visiting the village of Laxton to see the exhibition about strip farming in the 13th century I decided also to visit the Holocaust Museum. The experience was excellent. I heard a talk from a person who escaped on the Kindertransport and settled in England which was fascinating. If I'm in the area again I would certainly take the opportunity to... More

This is a high quality and well structured record of the reality of the holocaust with plenty of humanity and authentic records. The staff are very helpful and the atmosphere is genuine and sobering. A real record to contemplate.

Visited this exhibition today after my first visit ten years ago. The exhibition is extremely well put together and sympathetically done. The staff are first class and the café is exceptionally good value for money. The first time I have ever seen a pot of tea produced with extra tea bag on the side! This exhibition makes you realise that... More

I went here in 2009 as part of a visit through work and returned today with family. Staff are very friendly and helpful and they are a credit to keeping the museum up and running. Unfortunately I did not get chance to see everything or walk around the memorial gardens due to other commitments and bad weather so will be... More

This museum takes on this horrific time in history in a very sensitive way. The atrocities are tracked from their beginnings and are shown in photos, written explanations and personal experiences of survivors which are thought provoking. This museum should be on every school's carriculum.The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Food is available from the cafe and is fresh and... More

I attended the museum with a group of 20 people and was truly blown away by the exhibitions and staff on site. There are 2 sections to this museum which are suitable for primary and secondly school students as well as adults. The tour is very emotional and the guides are very informative, answering several questions throughout the tour. This... More

Located far from anywhere so a satnav is helpful but well worth a visit. A compact but engaging exhibition using contemporary and interactive displays. Friendly staff and a cosy coffee shop. Parking easy so long as it is not too busy. Set in beautiful grounds which would look spectacular between the spring and autumn.

Visited with family and spent several hours looking round the museum and it was very moving and upsetting at the same time. We also took time to reflect in the memorial hall and spent quite some time reading the plaques in the gardens. Everybody should visit this place it really makes you think.
