A brilliant museum which reminds us all of real evil actions made to real people. A must visit if only to remind you of how lucky you and your families are!.

What an experience. Very humbling. Everyone should visit this museum. Seeing one of the original box cars used to transport people to their deaths was unbelievable.

A very real glimpse into the past with artifacts, memoirs, and photographs that are very chilling. Definitely worth the price. If you're not moved then you're probably not at the right museum.

Just to stand next to one of the train cars transported so many people to their death is sombering. If you can time your visit to get the guided tour you should. Very informative for those who are Jewish or not

I have only been to one other Holocaust Museum; Berlin, Germany, and while this cannot compare to that one, I felt it was well done. If one takes the time to listen carefully to the individual handheld audios provided, reads all the information, watches the...More

As other reviewers have stated, this museum is not comparable in size to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC or Yad Vashem in Jerusalem but it is still a worthwhile museum to visit. The entry fee includes an audio device that you...More

I've only been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C., not to the other places you mentioned. The St. Pete museum is smaller than D.C. but well worth your time.
