Small museum but very well preserved. Full of powerful history with detailed information of every location.

This is a must visit. It doesn't cost anything to pay your respects. There is also an old stone fortress that you can visit that overlooks the camp. Lots of information and never busy.

There are some many of these camps in Germany and other countries. This community has done a wonder job in bringing history back for people to visit and learn from.

This museum and memorial appears to be relatively new, but does an incredible job of depicting the conditions and history of the camp. Very few visitors when we toured in August. Would highly recommend.

Visit with my almost 7 year old. Was a bit hesitant about bringing him at first but we skipped some of the narration, I explained things in an age appropriate manner and I'm so glad we visited. The entire experience is so heartbreaking yet powerful...More

Are the concentration camp grounds and museum located in the same place? How long should you allow for both the grounds and museum? Is the tour recommended? How is this compared to Dachua which we visited before?

The museum is located inside the concentration camp. I would plan for at least half a day to view everything. We did not take the tour, everything is well documented and available in English. We also visited Dachau, which is... More
