“Tears”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

This museum is an amazing reminder of what Jewish people had to struggle through. Please take time to read all the little notes that have been left behind and look at the art work from the children.

“Moving museum”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

This museum, in a former barracks, details what life was like for the people imprisoned in Terezin. It has examples of the vibrant cultural life that flourished in Terezin, which included literature, music and drama. The pictures drawn by children are particularly heartbreaking, even the happy ones, as we know that most of them did not survive.

“Surprised to find so much of the Arts alive in Terezin”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Very interesting and unexpected to learn about the Arts that managed to exist, despite the horrible conditions in Terezin. The barracks had a number of displays dedicated to the talented residents of Terezin, and also of the arts of the children that lived there, and those that instructed them.
This building was included in our combo ticket purchased at the Fortress, as well as the Ghetto Museum, a five minute walk away. From the Fortress, I would allow 10-15 minutes to get to the Ghetto Museum, and then another 5 minutes to the Barracks. From there, you can continue on to the Crematorium. We did not encounter ANY options other than walking, so be sure all in your group are capable, or consider a private tour with transportation between sites.

“Must see”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

One of the museums of Terezin town.
About 65 km from Prague by bus from Nadrazi Holesovice (cheap option) or tour bus (overpriced tour) or by car via motorway about 1 hr drive without traffic. I recommend this trip as one full day trip, it is very educational and emotional.

“Magdeburg Barracks, part of Terezin Concentration Camp”
Reviewed 30 May 2008

This very worthwhile historical and tragic site actually is an integral part of "Terezin" the WW 2 German concentration camp and is included in a single site-wide admission ticket. See the informative reviews of all the buildings, grounds and Jewish cemetary of "Terezin", at
