Reviewed 9 June 2014

It is worth making the effort to visit this memorial. It puts the holocaust into context in excellent surroundings. Lots of pictures and videos. Can be busy.

“Holocaust Memorial”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Very touching. Very complete. Allow extra time to spend there as it takes awhile to read and absorb all they show. What a tragic time in history! This is a wonderful tribute to those lost.

“A good way to give memory to those involved”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

It was a excellent memorial, The whole building along with the gardens was something that gives memory. The different rooms setup was good in not being overwhelming

“Unforgettable phenomenal experience ”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Words cannot explain the emotions experienced as you walk through the corridors of this lifetime experience. I knew what it was like to watch one movie of a camp but to walk through and relive the impact of all of the holocaust in one day was uncomprehendable to put into words. It is a must see along with the Dead Sea scrolls in the Museum. Truly grateful. I will always love Israel.

“A very moving experience. MUST SEE”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We spent about 2 hours in the museum and there are some truly eye-opening moments. It's enough to leave an unsettling feeling in you, so as other reviewers have suggested...plan some time to refresh afterwards.

The audio guide is key for this museum - the crowds build up pretty fast and it can get difficult to get up close and read the signage boards. The audio guides make sure you don't miss anything.

Make sure you plan enough time to see the monuments and other buildings outside after you exit the main museum.

One other note - they don't allow photography or backpacks within the museum, though you can check them in downstairs from the ticket office.
