In peaceful settings you approached the house from the car park through beautiful garden settings. The gentleman on the desk was very welcoming and extremely helpful. He explained all I needed to know about my visit and what the place had to offer. He showed me through to the main exhibition that was well presented and easy to follow and... More

We were privileged to have listened to Bernard Grunbergs fascinating story following his arrival in England in 1938 as one of the kindertransport refugees. His story is humbling and he had those who were listening fixated. This included some 70 or so... More

The whole place was a real eye opener and really makes you think about a time which should never be... More

We have passed by the centre on a few occasions when visiting the area, yesterday we visited it.

What we did see was very moving and informative. Just walking around the... More

The thought provoking and powerful displays explain the multiple aspects of the holocaust. The multi media presentations bring home the background and effects of this awful event on everyday people. Important for everyone to see to ensure we do not forget.

You walk through a very tranquil garden on your arrival which is also a poignant memorial and immediately gives the good feel of calmness. All the staff are welcoming and friendly. The main part of the museum is called 'The... More
