Excellent presentation on the Holocaust, but even more, on the sad condition of man. Obviously, without the ministry of Christ in our lives, the horrible atrocities that characterized hatered and bigotry will only continue, as they are even today, while the rest of us just turn a passive eye. May all of us humble our hearts and seek reconciliation with... More

While this place is a must while visiting St. Petersburg it's also an extremely sad part of history. Writing notes and placing them in the wall was extremely emotional. Please make this part of your visiting stops. Thank you to the staff.

This is a small museum well organized with the history of the Holocaust. A must see when visiting St.Petersburg. The way the story is presented is very intereting.

This Museum opened my eyes to the horrible injustice these poor people endured. The pictures, stories and short films were just so sad, such a truly horrific piece of history that unfortunately does not get taught to our children.

My husband and I was vacationing down here all week and love history so we took the tour. We loved the audio devices that helped with the tour ; which were free! The pictures, stories, videos and artifacts are amazing. Very much worth the visit. If we don't teach our children about the past it could be easily repeated.

Upon entering, a volunteer gives you an audio device you hang around your neck. I was greeted by Marty, who felt he was funny and made derogatory remarks about the size of my head. Nice greeting! They had some interesting exhibits covering not just the holocaust, but other times and other examples of genocide. They had thought-provoking presentations. There is... More

A small museum but packed with so much information. We were there for about 2 hours. The museum is nicely laid out so you can see all the exhibits. One of the exhibits is an original boxcar. I love history, and was surprised there was information that I hadn't heard before. Well worth the trip if you are near St.... More

This museum is a small display of paintings depicting various aspects of the Holocaust . The paintings are very well done and certainly evoke emotion !!. Cost is your donation.

Free parking $16 admissions for an adult Wheel chair accessible Elevator available to get to the 2nd floor. Really glad I made the trip for this museum visit. There is a metal detector upon entry which reminds you of the threat the Jewish community is constantly under. $16 for adults, there are discounts for seniors, active duty military and students....
