Really excellent museum but there is so much to look at, read and take in, that 2 and a half hours was not enough to do justice to this thought provoking museum.

The design of this centre is incredible, beautifully laid out with stunning memorial gardens. Words cannot express the sadness felt for all those families. No photos were taken due to the privacy of all those that have lost their life.

The museum is very sober, facts do not need comments. Still, it’s not easy to comprehend how 6 millions people could be murdered because of their origin

Unfortunately the Yad Vashem was a bit of a disappointment. I expected a lot more and it didn't deliver. The holocaust museum in Washington DC is much better.

Everyone should see Yad Vashem. Admission is free to all who wish to enter. Donations are always accepted and greatly appreciated. Get there early to keep ahead of your groups. Lathe backpacks are not allowed but there is complementary bag check in the lower level...More

A combination of great interest and shock/sorrow. I do know about most of what I saw but to see all the personal stories and horror in one place was simply very sad. We must never forget the holocaust and this will keep this alive and...More

A well done memorial - a must for every visitor to Israel to understand the country and his struggles. Exemplary displays and design. Buildings and surroundings are works of art in themselves. Moving visit.
