This is the first time we have visited the Holocaust Museum in Naples. It is small, but full of information on this very important time in history. Our docent was Stu and he did an excellent job of highlighting the exhibits. This small museum is definitely worth a visit when you are in the area.

While on Spring Break vacation my teenage sons and I happened to drive by and see the Holocaust Museum sign. It was just by luck we noticed the small sign, but we are so thankful that we did. Our Docent was (Stu Sweitzer) so personable and extremely knowledgeable about the events of the Holocaust. We will never forget our experience.... More

It seems like several of our recent reviewers were on Stu's tour! He is a wonderful addition to our team of docents. Thank you for bringing in our sons - we're glad to hear they were engaged. This is such an important topic for our young people to understand. We appreciate your visit! More

In this limited space one finds an amazing and organized trove of information. After a brief introduction in the small auditorium, our docent, Ron Agronin, took us on a fascinating tour through the exhibits. There are many original artifacts donated by local visitors and it is organized in a coherent manner. There were several teenagers in our group who were... More

My boyfriend, who is a history buff, and then myself found this tour very educational and intriguing. He even learned some things while I learned a lot. Our guide was very friendly and informative and took time to answer all questions. Alto of artifacts that are all donated by Jewish and German families alike.

This wonderful little gem of a museum is all about the people. The 5th graders who started the dream of a museum, the adults who made the dream come true. And most of all, the millions of people who did not survive the Holocaust. This museum honors their story, which is told in a powerful way through pictures, a video... More

We are so pleased you took the time to visit us! Just a quick note - the Museum was inspired by a local 7th grade class from Golden Gate Middle School. They created a classroom exhibit called "Out of the Ashes" that became the foundation for our Museum. We hope to see you again! More

We attended a guided tour today and were very impressed with with the professionalism and knowledge of the presenter. The museum is appropriate for adults and children as well. It should be on everyone's list as a major Naples attraction.

Though I do believe the speakers make or break your experience at this little museum. It is quite staggering to spend time at his little gem. A brutal time in our history, this museum is filled with a great deal of memorabilia and history for everyone.

This Holocaust Museum is small compared to others we've visited. It is made up mostly of photographs which do tell the story of the Holocaust. The best part was the outstanding guide who brought the history to life. Recommendation: check on the times of the guided tours before you go.

My husband and I spent 3 hours at the Naples Holocaust Museum. There were options for a self-guided tour with head phones to narrate key exhibits or an hour tour led by a tour guide. We chose the later. We gained so much information and we're surprised how many survivors or people affected by the Holocaust live in the Naples... More

Thanks so much for spending the afternoon with us! We are very fortunate the the Holocaust Survivors and WWII Liberators in our community have been willing to share their stories and artifacts with us. We are very much a "local museum" - telling the big story of the Holocaust through the eyes of the men & women in our community... More
