Spent 6 hours at the centre and museum. Remembrance gardens are beautiful. The Journey exhibition tour was very interesting, informative and very well presented. We then saw a film about one of the survivors of the camps and we were lucky that he was there in person to give a talk and answer questions on his life and what it... More

Promised ourselves that we would visit this one day. So today we decided to go, with my two granddaughters. When we went to purchase our tickets I quickly realised by the look on the woman's face selling the tickets that we may have a problem. She asked how old my youngest granddaughter was, nearly nine I replied, to which she... More

Having seen the signs for this centre for some years now when driving passed we decided to go and take a look. The exhibitions are real, thought provoking and humbling. They are really informative and help you to understand what really happened. Everyone should have the opportunity to learn about this subject and this is the perfect place for it.... More

What a privalige and honour to... More

In a very rural setting this is the only dedicated Holocaust Museum in the UK & well worth a visit. As well as the main museum there is also the Journey exhibition which is aimed at younger children but (as adults) we found this to be a more involving and personal experience as it really told the story through the...

Really enjoyed it, very well done. Good price, ticket is valid for a year. Lots to read and see, I didn't see the gardens as it was cold and wet but plan to go back when there is a speaker on plus visit the gardens. I found it very moving. The man that did the tour was very informative, really... More

Today my husband and I visited the most moving memorial we have ever experienced. I am not able to find words that truly describe this place. Gardens are tranquil and quite. So much time to think and reflect on what you have experienced within the centre. We think we know our history and that of the Jewish communities but I... More

Visiting the village of Laxton to see the exhibition about strip farming in the 13th century I decided also to visit the Holocaust Museum. The experience was excellent. I heard a talk from a person who escaped on the Kindertransport and settled in England which was fascinating. If I'm in the area again I would certainly take the opportunity to... More

This is a high quality and well structured record of the reality of the holocaust with plenty of humanity and authentic records. The staff are very helpful and the atmosphere is genuine and sobering. A real record to contemplate.
