This excellent museum tells the story of the holocaust in a teaching, non-shocking manner. It expresses tolerance and displays several artifacts from people local to the community. Currently it has an exhibition on Adolph Eichmann - his background, discovering him in Aregentina, his capture and...More

We visited because national media had recently reported on an exhibit here - the kidnapping and trial of Adolph Eichmann. Although we lived through that time and had vague memories of it, we found the exhibit fascinating - particularly the replica of the bullet-proof "box"...More

My husband and I visited on Holocaust Remembrance Day, and it was our first visit. The museum is beautiful. There are 3 floors, which are nicely divided. Today on the first floor, volunteers were reading all of the names of those killed in the Holocaust....More

I went in of a few minutes because several German speaking tourists were there and were a bit emotional. I would go again though.

Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Florida Holocaust Museum, and spent about 3 hours looking around. The museum is advertised as being 3 floors, but the main museum is really only on the first floor. The material on the second floor seems to change frequently...More

The theme was the capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann and very well done it was. An outstanding artifact was an original railway wagon used for the transportation of thousands of Jews to their death. Some interesting and original displays and of course the testimonies...More

The name of the place says it all. It was very educational and caused one to pause and remember. I believe it is an important place to visit and support to ensure this part of history is never forgotten.

All of us were impressed with the quality and breadth of the museum. Very well presented, respectful and informative. Easy to walk through the museum and see all the exhibits. Give yourself hours to walk through, and reflect.

I found this to be a very powerful museum. It was not up to par with the one in Washington DC but I can't think of one that is. Some people have complained that it is heavy on photographs rather than actual items. While this...More

I was touched and saddened by reading personal stories from those who had survived the holocaust or stories from family members. The videos were well presented and added depth to the entire exhibit. I was lucky in that during my stay in St. Petersburg, this...More

I've only been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C., not to the other places you mentioned. The St. Pete museum is smaller than D.C. but well worth your time.
