The information and videos that showed how Hitler rose to his power was very informative. There was a time that it took a while to get through the area do too many people.

Hard to walk through the 4 floors of tragic and horrible history, but important to experience. I've never seen most of the photos and videos. There were hundreds of people walking through, and it was quiet. One thing that stood out for me was the...More

Was disappointed and unable to see all of the museum. The day we went, ALL the elevators were out of order. My husband had a walker so we couldn’t visit all exhibits.

Visited on a Saturday, which was crowded. Probably better during the week. Excellently laid out. Love the beginning, Daniel’s Story, it really helps to explain the perspective of a child. The history is easy to follow, lots of pictures and extremely moving. Giving the cards...More

This exhibit is very emotional from the moment you step into the elevator after receiving your id card. Definitely a stop everyone should make when in Washington.

I had decided before coming to DC that this museum was a must see. If you are coming during off season you don’t need tickets ahead of time, but just to give you an idea of its popularity, spring/summer 2020 tickets are available online starting...More

We bought ours the day before and got tickets for 11:45. Id check around noon the day before at least to be sure. Some days you can walk right in-others you’d be out of luck.
