The museum is very large and takes several hours to go through. There is a special memorial for the children who were killed in the holocaust. The main area zigags back and forth, so you won't get lost or need to figure out where to go next. It is very well done and powerful. Of course not an enjoyable experience,... More

Wowser! Those poor souls. How many of them were my ancestors. I learned how to delve deeper into my past to hopefully come up with more information on where my ancestors came from and what they went through. I learned how to try and do some research on unknown names of who may have hidden my family in their home... More

This is a very moving experience. As sad as it made me to go through this museum, it is something that we should all experience less we forget! The exhibits are well done, well documented and real. I would suggest that everyone take time to go here when visiting the Holy Land.

I was a bit hesitant about being trapped into a "museum" experience... but this place is anything but. The grounds are breath-taking, everything is set up with a great deal of sensitivity and taste. It is of course an emotional experience but you can dose it the way you like it, facts are available but not imposed on you. For... More

Yad Vashem is not to be missed when visiting Jerusalem. I would recommend to take the audio tour. That will give you areal understanding of the holocaust. I would recommend at lest half a day.

For those who deny the Holocaust, this is the proof of its existence. If you don't heed the warnings of hate, then it will happen again.

No visitor to Jerusalem should ever fail to go to Yad Vashem. It is the most heart rending of places. The story it tells is distressing, depressing and without any consolation. Human inhumanity is recorded in all its horrific detail. You must visit Yad Vashem.
