More of a Holocaust museum than a Jewish museum but amazing nonetheless. They have so much cool history like old nazi passports and first hand stor.

I thought the experience was great. Our guide was a Holocaust survivor, and he gave us more insight then any plaque could. The museum was very well done, and an absolute recommendation.

Visited this Museum in November and was so impressed! I was reading related literature at the time and was "wowed" by the intertwining of information between the museum's displays and the books I was reading at the time. Very kind people, and very well laid out displays! The personal effects from people such as place settings, clothing, etc. were very well preserved. I will definitely go again the next time we are in the area!

My rating is not based on the story of the museum or the artifacts contained. We selected an audio tour which is decent to operate but slowly paced. There are numbered items that are discussed in the audio but they tend to be difficult to spot or its not clear where to look to match the story. Overall we enjoyed the history of this family and understanding the hardships forced on this group of people. It is a very sobering experience, especially if you are unaware of events pre and post World War II. I would not recommend bringing children or even adults with short attention spans. Expect at least 2 hours if you do not intend to read too deeply into the exhibits.

Emotionally draining and educational experience. You need to spend hours here to fully appreciate everything on each floor. (especially the 2nd floor).

Great museum, not only they have a great collection and it is very well preserved, but it is also very varied and illustrative. You can get a device which guides you throughout the museum, you can choose what to listen, and is Meryl Streep who narrates! Informative, interesting, emotional and respectful.
