El museo es muy bonito. Todo es interactivo. Las conferencias que ofrecieron sobre los sobrevivientes del Holocausto le da un toque emotivo. more »The museum is very nice. Everything is interactive. The lectures they offered about the Holocaust survivors give it an emotional touch.
Truly remarkable museum. I was told we could easily see/do everything in 2 hours. I disagree. I would have preferred much longer. Don't miss the Diary of Anne Frank exhibit. It's worth the extra charge. The entire museum is a combination of audio/visual displays
My english class went for a field trip and this was a great learning experience i really enjoyed having the chance to go here it had a lot of information about people in the holocaust. Our tour guide was Lina and she was just a great person who knew her stuff. I would recommend going here if you are interested in the holocaust or want to know more about it or just to go and see the exhibits. Its very interactive and can tell the stories of people in the holocaust.
