Forget the ultra expensive guided trips. Get on the bus from Prague to Terezin - it is a scenic 1 hour drive. Get out at the stop near the small fortress, before you get to town. You must retrace the bus - go back up the road 10 minutes, and there it is. Get the free guided tour, very much worth it, see some of the films (not gory), and then spend at least 30 min at the museum learning about the Czech resistance movement and the heroes who ended up at the fortress. Then take the road back to town (make a right when you get to the river). Tour the Ghetto Museum, it is useful for those who know little about the Holocaust. Then go to the Magdaburske barracks which I found more interesting. It details the amazing cultural life of the Jews imprisoned in Terezin - the paintings, cartoons, newspapers and music. Even operas and sonatas were written there. Fascinating. I wish the signage was better and I wish the museums gave more information about the Jewish community - but still, a must see. BTW, the town is still VERY creepy, I can't explain why.
