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!

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.

Take the time to go down to Battery Park City -- worth the visit. A beautiful and poignant and thought provocative site. Terrific public programs.

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.

I am going there tomorrow for my school trip!!!! We are going on a Coach bus (HUGE busses with black windows) instead of a school bus!!! Oh and I am in 8th grade (Age 13) I rate it 5 even though I am not Jewish it looks like it is going to be exiting!!!

One of the best museums in New York City! A great learning tool for kids. Lots of interesting artifacts for holocaust aficionados. Definitely worth the cost of admission. Only downside is it is near financial district and not on museum mile.

A good museum, but it needs to be bigger. Washington D.C.'s is pretty big so there is no excuse........
