I have always taken an interest in the Holocaust and felt like I had to visit this museum while visiting St Petersburg for the day. Me, my husband and my father spent a couple of hours looking around the museum and I came away even more interested in the Holocaust than ever before. The museum is very informative and has... More

We were told this is the sixth largest museum of it's kind in the U.S. and we found it interesting and well-done! We went when there was a live docent and she did a super job! However, if you prefer, there are self-guided tours with individual devices. It is always sobering to review the holocaust, but good to know about...especially... More

This museum is quite small but they have managed to pack in a lot of history and artifacts from this era. The staff is very friendly and the area is easy to find.

Very well done museum. This is a smaller scale, manageable, kid appropriate museum. I felt that my kids got a good intro lesson to the Holocaust. I'm a teacher, and I got dike good ideas to bring back to the classroom when I teach my Holocaust unit.

The Florida Holocaust Museum is a very dignifed tribute and memorial to the victims and survivors of The Holocaust. The well-designed exhibits provide extensive historical background and personal accounts of this tragic time in world history. You are provided with a hand-held audio device that gives more information for many parts of the exhibits. I would highly recommend this museum...we... More

I cannot adequately describe the many, many emotions I felt walking through this museum. This was before my time, but I cannot imagine hating someone so much that I would want to eradicate them from the earth! I learned so much from the museum. It's extremely overwhelming and hard to take at times. The museum has done an exceptional job... More

An excellent museum. I've been to several Holocaust Museums and this one was really well done. I learned a lot here too which surprised me. I enjoyed the temporary exhibit "Ravenbruck" which I had never known about. It was very moving. I did appreciate that it was informative, but not so graphic that it was hard to see. They did...

We are very interested in history, and our visit to the Florida Holocaust Museum was totally incredible! We learned so much about other areas of the holocaust. We went in at a good time, because there was a man there that was a survivor of the holocaust, and we were so thrilled to hear his story of he and his... More

This venue is definitely worth spending a couple hours in while visiting St. Pete. I have been to Dachau and Auschwitz a couple times, but still found the museum to be educational and engaging. It's small, but the first floor layout does a good job of taking you through history and some of the horrors of WWII. Second and third... More

This museum is set out very well and extremely moving and pictures are not too graphic although still project the horrors of the holocaust. We were lucky to have a guide who was extremely knowledgeable who had a friend who had been a victim many years ago. A sobering reminder of things past and now going on in many parts... More
