This is a must see. If you're into history at all, you must stop here. There are donations from family members, with explanations of where they came from, and how they acquired them. So much heartbreak and sadness here, but the truth of what really...More

The stories and relics are very moving. I especially liked the artwork exhibit on the 2nd floor - it is extremely powerful. It’s so sad that the last few Holocaust survivors are disappearing and already it seems the lessons of recent history have been forgotten....More

Notthing to say except that is one of the best holocaust museums we ever saw. For those who know history a bit it is impressive. For those who know it a lot it´s the museum that cannot be left behind without see it.

Magnificent Museum a must visit. Self guided tour at your own pace, moving and humbling experience. A shame that this ever happened. Upstairs are many pictures by an artist who captures the dilemma of these people. Reasonably priced.

This is a gem of a museum in the heart of downtown St. Pete. You will leave this place feeling humble, compassionate and respectful of other human beings.

Not only does the museum have a box car from the Holocaust, we were able to see a special presentation on the Bielski brothers. While there are larger museums around the country, this one is excellent for its size.

A very somber afternoon for my husband and I as we did the Holocaust tour. There were a lot of artifacts and great information. The “box car” was indescribable and a must see. This was my first Holocaust Museum, 2nd for my husband. Definitely worth...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.
