We went to this via the tram and then walked down the hill through the Jerusalem forest. Take the tram to the last stop near Mt Herzel and get off there. Walk towards Mt Herzel and go down the hill to get to the entrance. We rented the audio headsets but you really would not have to as there are... More

Well done and very informative, the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial is one place to go to. However for the serious history buffs, 2-3 hours is not enough to really be able to go through the material and videos. had I known their schedule beforehand, I would have visited on the afternoon on the day when it stays open until evening...

The museum is filled with stories, tv tapes rotating, telling about the experiences of many holocaust survivors, and their family distraction or survival. It is an amazing site, I feel everyone should see.

The set up of the museum is outstanding and the way it walks us through the history of the holocaust and the impact it had on different regions in Eastern and Western Europe. We hired one of the guides and his knowledge was outstanding. A must see.

This museum tells the story of anti Semitism dating back to the birth of Christ and to modern day. It is important to understand the prosecution from the start to best appreciate the atrocity of the holicaust. Museum says age 20 and up. I personally suggest age 13 and up. Jew and Non Jew must go and never forget.

A must visit. I actually learned a lot about what happened, more than I would have guessed. I went Friday morning and it was very packed with massive tour groups. There was times when you actually couldn't move there was that many people. Maybe visit at a different time.

This is a place to return to more than once. Hard to take everything in . The children's memorial is heartbreakingly beautiful. Not an easy visit-well worth it.
