Overview
More
The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984. Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice.

This is a very good memorial museum. It is a heavy, emotional experience, but something that everyone should experience at least once. I have been to other holocaust museums, and this one is really good. We took 2 of our children, ages 12 and 14....More

The building's architecture and organization are superb. Excellent timeline of Judaism throughout history. Marvelous exhibits, and then, as the 1920s end, you VERY APPROPRIATELY go DOWN a ramp; the passageway becomes narrow and dark. This is the entryway to the atrocities. Searing newsreels show the...More

Disappointed because my family drove 3 hours away to visit. When we got there we were met at the door and were told that we were not going to be allowed in because they were closing early due to Passover. Weeks prior to our trip...More

We took our 9 year old granddaughter as she expressed an interest and it was emotionally draining but a needed visit. We are not Jewish but everyone should visit and be reminded of the horror and how the world looked away.

This museum dedicated to the Holocaust must be seen by everyone regardless of religion as one must see the cruelty in the world during World War II but not to say it is going on now in some areas.

This museum compares favorably with the Holocaust Museums in Washington, DC and Jerusalem. The exhibit begins with an excellent timeline, comparing world history and the history of the Jewish people. Then, the focus is on the Jewish communities of Europe, what they were like and...More

It was difficult to walk around with all the stories. Very heartbreaking. I brought my son and daughter, who are teenagers and they found it very informative. Many conversations came about.

My granddaughter, age 11, won't stop talking about the Holocaust Memorial Center. The impact that was made on her will last a lifetime. She can't stop talking about it. A must for all families.

You can go anytime to visit the museum. To do a guided tour or hear one of the survivors (highly recommended), call them to find out the times but you don't need a reservation.
