I never heard of this memorial before, but it was part of a day-tour by bus. It's a very touching experience. Not sure what it would be like driving there by car.

Amazing memorial. I am not Jewish, but if this place doesn't bring a tear to your eye then something is wrong with you.

Interesting and sad. Really need to walk through it and around it to see all of it. Looking from the sidewalk really doesn't do it justice.

This sculpture in at a fairly busy intersection but worth spending some time to walk around and reflect for a while. It's got impact and is well done.

This is not a memorial that you should visit on a whim. Come with respect and a bit of time where you can read the captions attached to each of the photos. They tell a story and bring you to a time where life was unbearable for a people undeserving of such hatred. Grasp the depths of despair you can... More

The sculptures are very moving and are amazing pieces of art that make the pain very real. One of the most moving memorials that I have been to. But what really struck me, was the opening description of how Hilter wanted to make "Germany Great Again"- very scary- as we say Never Again- a very real reminder that we must... More

We arrived in South Beach as a cruise stay package and in the local information pack I saw details of the Holocaust Memorial. I had to come to pay my respects. I visited the memorial and spoke with staff at reception and with a holocaust survivor. It was a privilege to meet them and very emotional. The setting to the... More

Such a beautiful place.. Pictures were heartbreaking but the place itself was so peaceful. I would definitely like to bring my family back to visit.

Although one would normally be enjoying the wonders that are Miami Beach, it was a salutary experience just to take a couple of hours out to sit, reflect and wonder at the enormity of what the Memorial is all about. It is a work of art and truly does "what it says on the tin": it is a stark reminder... More
