This is a place to visit with thoughtfulness and honesty. It is not for young children. The staff is excellent. The current space is small and that lends to the experience. The artifacts on display are personal, intense and meaningful.More

Everyone should study history and visit museums lest we forget things that have happened and risk repeating. This is a small museum, but has great artifacts, pictures, and written information about the holocaust.

As other reviews state, this is a very small museum but the curator does a great job of maximizing the space by choosing to focus on a single day during the holocaust. I’ve never seen this done before and it works well, however, the museum...More

I don't remember seeing any restrictions on clothing or accessories. My wife was in a wheelchair at the time and I know she was carrying a bag of some sort along with her purse.
