A very manageable place to visit from beginning to end. Shocking and heart-stopping, yet intimate, poignant and realistic in its presentation. Montrealers' survivor testimony and archival film footage enhances the experience. Off the beaten track but more than worth the "detour".

This is a small but very well-done holocaust museum. It has one amazing feature - many of the guides are holocaust survivors, speaking from personal experience! That makes it a museum visit like no other.

An incredible, personalized lesson in survival and the strength of the human spirit. Much more than a historical recounting of the Holocaust.

I took a couple of hours - taking time to watch all of the videos and read almost everything. It was worth every minute - one of the best things I did in Montreal.
