This museum is an amazing auditory tour throughout aspects of or that contributed to the holocaust. It was humbling,powerful, and haunting specially given the current climate of American politics. Interesting stories about refugees lead our group into discussions on today’s issues and concerns using history as our guide to try to learn from our past. It is free operating on donations only, earphones provided but it isn’t a bad idea to bring your own as when they are busy they may run low. Parking garage is kinda hidden, but follow signs and don’t be afraid your in the right place.
I just visited the Holocaust Museum today, and it is remarkable. For the survivors to donate artifacts, personal stories of resilience, we must not forget these atrocities and pass down this history for the next generation. My personal favorite is the memorial for the children that have perished. That memorial hold place in my heart for those innocent children. Definitely would recommend anyone to visit the Holocaust Museum and please donate!
My family and I visited the museum with our school-aged children thinking this would be an educational experience. Was I wrong! 5 min into our arrival we encountered a survivor, Mary. She came up to us in a such confrontational demenur, yelling at us for bringing our children and “exposing” them to such things as the museum. I was in utter shock! The rest of the tour just stared at us, the tour guide did NOTHING to remove her or calm her. I asked her to leave us alone and that I was their mother and I obviously approved of the visit. She continued to yell and verbally attack us, made my son cry as he starts to have a panic attack, begging to leave. The staff tried to calm US instead of HER! I was as polite as can be and never disrespected anyone. I know that if the roles were reversed, we would not only have been escorted maybe even detained. The security guard roled his eyes when we asked him to intervene. I don’t think she is an appropriate person to conduct tours. This place advertises school field trips, she most certainly should never be allowed to be around children!! Shame on this place for allowed what they very much are educating on, abuse and segregation.
Overall an OK museum. The story of the holocaust is told mostly through looking at pictures and listening to an audio narrated explanation of each. I would have liked to see more artifacts. I feel like that would make it more interesting.
We visited in 2015, it took me too long to write a review. I was looking at some pictures when I remembered I needed to write this. Can't really be considered a museum, because everything is based on pictures really. The first Holocaust Museum that I ever seen was actually the Real Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum. Been there in 2011. I am still giving this place 5 stars though. We listened and chatted with a Holocaust survivor. Loved how the room was full of high schoolers. So important that young people learn from the history. It was very emotional and humbling. You should go and see the LA Museum of Holocaust.
