Unbelievable holocaust museum. No stone is unturned. The architecture is a fabulous and the contents. Do not miss the Children's memorial at the end. This was done right.

I can't call this place awesome or spectacular or magnificent. The content in here is opposite of that but the way it has been presented is beautiful. I was a tourist and was suggested to go here by my colleagues. I know few things and...More

I would say this is the first thing you should do when you visit Israel. I loved the quietness, the interviews shown, and the overall feel. I know that when I go back I will visit this memorial again. We spent several hours in there...More

Heart breaking, really brings the human element to life, this is a must do if you are in the Jerusalem area, extremely well laid out. Not for younger children.

Yad Vashem must be seen and experienced, especially for younger generations for whom the Holocaust may seem like ancient history (if they even know about it!). I have been to other such museums, and while the one in Washington DC is equally powerful (and more...More

Yad Vashem is beautifully situated and a respectful place for the 6 million Jewish people who died during the holocaust. We arrived in the afternoon and besides the main exhibition hall it was never crowded. There are also some great view of Jerusalem.

This was our third visit to Israel, we had 20 day the 1st time so that we can see everything. It wasn't enough, there is just soo much to see. Israel is an awesome country and has new surprises each time you go.

Everyone should visit Yad Vashem at some point. The museum is very well done--giving the story in chronological order. Make sure to visit the Children's Memorial--you will certainly be touched. You need at least 2-3 hours here--maybe more.
