I've bragged to people that our relatively small museum actually has a boxcar. Since then I've been to Yad Vashem (Israel) and the Washington D.C. museums. St. Pete.'s is well done and well run.

This museum is packed with history and information. It was a very moving experience. The displays are well laid out and there is even a film room where you can watch interviews of survivors.

We went on Sunday, Mothers Day. It wasn't too crowded. We wanted to see the exhibit on Gays and The Third Reich. Like all the horrific things Hitler did, killing gays was also part of his final solution. The museum is well planned, easy to...More

I expected more. Most of the interesting items were on the bottom floor. Saw a cattle car used to transport prisoners and some other interesting artifacts. It only told the history of why it got started. Did not go into detail about everyday life in...More

Your comments are truly amazing! Thank you. I've been to many Holocaust museums including Yad vashem in Israel ,the museum in Washington, D.C. ,new York and south beach. How does this compare??? The world should never forget.
