This is a place that you have to go, to understand how much jewish people has suffered during and even before the second war. And understand that we, as humans beings can't let it happen again.

Entering fee is very fair (especially for students). First floor was closed when I got there so I visited the second and third. One can see some similarities between Yad-Vashem museum in Jerusalem, but the uniqueness here is the relations to the American history (social,...More

i have visted Jewish museums in Israel and Europe and this is outstanding. The holocaust is particularly well presented with sensitivity. Also section on post-Holocaust is excellent. Andy Goldsworthy's Living stones is lovely. Good cafe with Jewish food. No photography.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

I would say the first floor and the garden of stones and if they have a special exhibit, as well. Since I Work there, I personally and professionally feel maybe the 11 year old, if he/she has begun to study the Holocaust... More

La visita dura una hora y media a dos horas en general. Si usas la guia de audio gratis, que es disponible in Espanol, la visita dura una hora y media o menos si prefieres.
