The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
How to get there
  • Haymarket • 2 min walk

So poignant and utterly sad, reading the truthful words of those horrifically impacted by the murderous Nazis.
The respect shown by the City of Boston, is evident and the arrangment of this memorial, was quite unique and yet, so hard-hitting.
So worthy of seeing and to read the comments.

Poignant and powerful monument - it's easy to visit along the way to local sites, and important to remember. It's very well done.

Really touching memorial that evokes a lot of emotions. There was a lot of thought put into the memorial from the etched numbers in the glass to the steam rising from the ground.

Very somber experience. I’ve been to German concentration camps, but this was different. Take your time, read the quotes, look at all the tattoo numbers, notice the mist. Very moving experience.

A surprise for Boston, very moving modern design. You cannot fail to reflect on the horror that took place during the Holocaust. :-(

This memorial was very moving and thought-provoking. If you have the opportunity to visit at night, you will see the six towers illuminated and can see the steam rising up through the ground gratings which left a somber impact. Easy access but not so with parking.

Take a pause in your day and just spend 15 minutes walking through these six towers. 1 million lost souls per tower. I million people gone! The darkest time in history. The tears would not hold back as I took this walk. Never, never forget!!

Very touching and unexpectedly immersive in this outdoor setting. No planning required. Accessible to anyone walking by. We took a few moments and walked through, read the accounts of the holocaust survivors. I’m glad we did.
