The photos of the trial are one of a kind. Docent very knowledgeable and welcoming. Way too much to absorb in one visit. Pick up the brochure (really almost a magazine) and absorb the history at your leisure.

It was an enjoyable experience. Our tour guide was extremely and knowledgeable. No fee to enter but donations are accepted but they will not tell you that unless you ask. I loved all the information on the Nuremburg Trials and on the Nazi War criminals.

I just completed my tour of the Robert H. Jackson Center, and I came away very impressed. I had an excellent tour guide Linda. She taught me things even I didn't know like the chairs that all the Supreme Court Judges sat in were made in Jamestown. The RHJ Center is first class all the way and is a great addition to the city of Jamestown.

By all means come to Jamestown and discover the Jackson Center, they have put Justice Jackson's life and accomplishments front and center for all to learn from.

The Robert H. Jackson Center is dedicated to the life and accomplishments of Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson. This center is a labor of love and respect. The Center contains information on his life and career, and about the Holocaust and Justice Jackson's work on the Nuremburg Trials. There are many rooms of incredible artifacts and historic documents, as well as multi-media presentations. There are other displays dealing with civil rights, peace, war and humanitarian endeavors. All in a beautiful Victorian building in the heart of Jamestown. Great for historians, educators, families, school groups, Supreme Court followers and those interested in learning more about the Holocaust.

What a great collection of history dedicated to the man instrumental in the Nuremburg trials. Plan to take some time and take an official tour with one of their excellent docents.
