Here are some of the things our visitors are saying about us:
“Speaks for itself"Reviewed 26 February 2013
If you have not been there in the past few years, since they re-did it, it is a MUST. The new design is much more interesting and evocative than the old one.
“A place not to be missed”Reviewed 24 August 2012
Knowing history (OK, I am a bit of history freak) and having visited actual places of former concentration camps (quite a few) I still wouldn't miss it - very well designed, very touching, very accurate. You should take audio-guide and allow time to really let it sink into you.
“moving.... makes u wonder what a man can do......”Reviewed 20 May 2013
Situated on Mt Herzl in the new Jerusalem, is this museum, which is unlike any regular collection of items but a collection of feelings and emotions. Please take a minimum of 3 hrs for this magnificent piece of haunting history.
“Powerful and moving”Reviewed 20 May 2013
The audio and visual displays are powerful, moving and very well done. The architects did an excellent job with the gardens and buildings to build a spiritual space. It is a must see for all adults. Allow enough time. There is much to see and hear.
“Impressive and never forgetting”Reviewed 12 May 2013
I think the title of this review says everything that this museum needs. It made a big impression on me. I will never forget, but that is what this museum also wants to say: to give a name to all the Jewish victims of WWII, that we will never forget.
