The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984. Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice.

The security staff is unfriendly and overzealous. They are unwelcoming and the staff all the way up to the director is uncommunicative in their approach. If you are not someone they want to engage they will ignore any inquiry. There are some factual errors in...More

We were here with a group and had an excellent tour guide. The museum is very well maintained and has many interesting exhibits. We would like to return when we could spend more time since we only saw the highlights this time.

As the first Holocaust Museum in American, this is a first class experience. The entire exhibit was presented as a factual horrifying event of World history. The most stunning was the number of persons from every country that were murdered. Poland led the list, which...More

You can go anytime to visit the museum. To do a guided tour or hear one of the survivors (highly recommended), call them to find out the times but you don't need a reservation.
