On our trip to CA we decided to add a bit of history to the trip. My teenage daughter is very interested in the Holocaust and asked if we could visit this museum. We didn't realize how hidden the museum was.... we drove around the block several times before realizing the museum parking is underground with no signage advertising the museum at all. It was like they wanted to keep the museum a secret. We had to be let into the gate and were told to come directly to the front desk.
The museum is free; however they do ask for a donation upon departure, which is well deserved for the quality of the displays and the information that was provided.
Upon arrival we all had to submit our Drivers Licenses, which were returned to us upon departure. We were also given IPods with headphones which led each of us through the museum at our own pace, which was nice because with 3 kids all at different age levels, this gives everyone the opportunity to view the displays and hear the stories that they are most interested in.
The displays were unbelievable for being such a small museum. We felt privledged to be able to view such items and hear such stories, albeit horrifying and saddening.
So when in LA and you need a dose of reality stop by the museum and pay tribute. You won't be disappointed......at least we weren't.
