  • This museum gave a realistic, accurate and frightening depiction of events leading up to the Holocaust and the Holocaust itself. I have been to numerous Holocaust memorials/museums and this one was the best. This museum should be included in every tour. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Wonderful interactive memorial. Interfaces can be a litle hard to navigate but truly eye opening experience and very well presented. To do this properly I would recommend pencilling in around 4 hours. Entry price is very reasonable too. Location is a fair meal from other more popular attractions and some of the areas on the walk back feel a little less safe than the main stretches so do plan journey before visiting.
