A 'Must See' if visiting Jerusalem

This is a place that cannot be missed while visiting Jerusalem, it will not be a joyful fun experience, yet still it needs to be seen. There is, I believe, an age restriction of 10 upwards because of some of the graphic portrayal of this horrendous, shameful event in history. My wife and I were there with a guide and provided with headsets through which we could hear a commentary for the guide as we passed through, if you are there without a guide, the headsets also work with 'inbuilt' commentaries at all points. This will be an emotional, possibly tearful visit, but yet again it needs to be seen, and it contains a lot of photographic evidence, personal artefacts and belongings, diaries and other information all centred around the holocaust. There is also within the grounds a separate memorial to the 1.5 million children murdered in the holocaust which is particularly poignant. Outside there is a garden with trees planted in memory of those who have been designated as 'Righteous Among The Nations' containing famous names such as Oscar Schindler, (Schindler's List) and many more less well known names, all individuals who risked their own lives to help save Jewish people throughout Europe.

Holocause Remembrance-Must Experience
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

I cannot say this is a enjoyable site in Jerusalem, but it is so very necessary to see the horror human beings are capable of so we do not repeat it ever again.

The architecture of the museum is very calm and peaceful. The grounds are set so that you come through the walkway of heroes and to the children's museum. The museum has been curated really well with witness testimonies, photos and factual information. All signs are in English and Hebrew. It is eerily beautiful but also very emotional. It is not suitable for children - as some of the pictures would be really upsetting. What a tribute to the victims of the holocaust.

Emotionally drainage but should be Compulsory for all
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 2 days ago

A graphic portrayal of the Holocaust backed up by personal interviews and photographic evidence shot by Germans themselves, it is difficult to understand how such cruelty and savagery could be perpetrated by a "civilised" society. Clearly the general population of Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Hungary etc was complicit. People from all around the world...

Clearly the general population of Lithuania, Germany, Poland, Hungary etc was complicit. People from all around the world were there when we went. An absolute MUST for anyone visiting Jerusalem.

A history of Jewish tragedy
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 3 days ago

If you are to understand a real tragedy of Jewish diaspora and why Israel is so crucial for Jews around the world this a place to be. Truly heart breaking. It also sheds a light on today's conflicts across Europe - war legacy is still heavily entrenched in people's minds thus shaping individual perceptions...
