At first, we hadn't given much thought about visiting this museum as we had our plans set on visiting other Smithsonian museums at the mall. At the end of our second 'museums day' we decided to drop by for a short visit... which turned into a four hour stay.
We learned so much from this museum, and as other reviewers have put it: the whole experience is such a great reminder of what we humans are capable of doing--the good, the bad and the evil, it also reminds us of the human's strength in trying times. One exhibit to another, all were presented in a respectful manner.
I would suggest you prepare yourself mentally for a trip to this museum... some of the exhibits left me felt mentally exhausted, no kidding. Overall, this is a must see museum when you're in DC.
