This has to be one of the best Holocaust Museums in the country. We spent over 31/2 hours there and we could have spent more. Well organized and so educational. One thing I take away. You can NEVER be a bystander to human atrocities.

Been there before but this time was part of reciprocal tkts from Selby Gardens. A very moving experience. They have an authentic boxcar from Poland that was used to transport the unfortunate to the gas chambers and it really knocks you out.

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip here. Being a history scholar, I've seen my share of holocaust history (including studying in Germany). This museum was light on artifacts, but the self-guided audio tour was impressive. I was also very pleased to see the genocide display at the end that not only acknowledged the Armenian Genocide but the genocides actively happening around... More

conveniently located downtown area and well worth a few hours of your time, a little more history than one might expect for a west coast of Florida attraction

I honestly think everyone should visit this museum. It was very touching and eye-opening. I brought my two teenage kids and they enjoyed it as much as I did. Can't wait to come back with other family members and friends.

I was impressed with the museum and the information provided. Living in St Petersburg for 5 years I wanted to visit the museum however I never took the time. The art that was displayed was impressive as well. I wish I had gone sooner!

My husband and visited the museum...it was a great way to spend a few hours. It was so informative and so much to take in. It's not a large museum but we totally enjoyed listening to their docent who was so interesting and great story teller. Well worth the visit. Parking was not a problem.

Compared to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. and to similar museums in larger cities, the Florida Holocaust Museum is small with a more limited collection. However, this serves to give visitors a more personal and intimate experience. Docents and volunteers share their stories and insights, engaging visitors in a glimpse of how local people and their...

Very interesting museum . We took the tour there were sad things. It's small but we think everyone should see this . I think they should have more on display as far as Ziclion B and some of the ovens that the nazis were killing the people.

The Florida Holocaust Museum is an outstanding tribute to those lost in this horror of history. I really liked how the tone is set for respect from the beginning as all guests are asked to silence their phones. Admission includes an audio tour, which provides details on each exhibit. The tour begins with information on the build up of Nazi... More
