The Holocaust Museum was started in 1998 as a school project and has grown into this treasure with personal effects from local survivors and liberators. I recommend timing your visit to include the docent led tour, at 1:00 and 2:30 weekdays. Small in space but jam packed with history and artifacts. You won't want to miss it.

Stopped in to the museum today and took the guided tour. The docent, Herbert, was excellent, and despite the relatively small size of the museum, the contents were exceptional. Whether you have a sense of history or not, you will remember this moving and emotional visit for a long time

This museum is small but very nice. A woman named Anna took us on a guided tour along with many other visitors. She said she is or was a teacher. She was very knowledgeable about this time in history. Having a teaching background was a huge advantage as she was very good at presenting the facts and making "learning" interesting.... More

This museum covers an obviously dreadful but very important subject extremely well. Because the building is small the number of exhibits is understandably fairly limited, although very well presented. However, the real success of the museum lies in its excellent guided tour and the fact that several of its local supporters have direct knowledge of the holocaust, either personally or... More

Our family decided to stop in and are quite happy we did. They do a tour with a docent that takes you through the story of the holocaust. They have actual items and many pictures from survivors, and the stories from the docent will bring tears to your eyes. It may seem strange to take a tour like this on... More

Looks small from the outside, huge on the inside and the narrators are excellent with information that you couldn't find in history books. Much better than I expected, a must see for anyone interested in real history.

This museum has many exhibits most of them donated by local people including many photographs. We had a tour with a guide Herb Berkeley who was very knowledgeable and informative. Although it is a sobering experience it is very important that people know what went on during the holocaust.

We had an excellent time a the Naples Holocaust Museum. The pictures and information at the exhibits are excellent. We also got a guided tour from a docent, Stu. He did a fine job conveying the history pre-WWII, during WWII, and post WWII. We also got a wonderful speech from a Holocaust survivor, who relayed his life as a child... More

Amazing museum and historical treasure in the heart of Naples. A very sobering and respectful treatment of such a tragic event in world history. A personal guide who was very knowlegable and who had family members who were survivors of the holocaust added to the educational and emotional impact of the tour. This should be a must visit for everyone... More
