this museum is free. has ample free parking right in front of the front door. it is a pretty dreary subject, and the horror is driven in by the matter of fact descriptions from Richmond residents who were interred in the camps. definitely get the ear phone guided tour

Very informative exposition of the historic documents, recreation of the historical events . Very moving personal accounts. I found it not less impressive than more well known museums.

Details the well known facets of Nazi Germany's atrocities. Some of the exhibits focus on survivors who came to Richmond after the war.

This museum brings the reality of the holocaust to the current age. The museum started as the experience of one family and has since expanded to grasp the scope of the horror.

Entry is free but donations are welcome. Parking is free.

The history of the Holocaust was well presented.
I rented headphones to get the narrated tour. This was a good call. An older gentleman (Holocaust survivor) narrates as you walk through the museum.

There's even a point when you crawl through the museum (there's an accessible alternative if crawling isn't your thing). I wouldn't take a child under the age of 12 because of the serious nature of the content in the museum.

It was very interesting. I highly recommend.
