Had a great experience here! 12/10 would recommend! Very interesting museum, especially because it’s the only one in Indiana.

We took our 13 year old grandson to visit this museum. He had read about the holocaust in school. It is not very large but I am so glad there are places like this to make sure that people don’t forget what happened. The museum was founded by Eva Kor in memory of her twin sister. They suffered greatly at the hands of Dr Mengele in Auschwitz as he experimented on twins. What a horrible time in the history of mankind!
During our visit, Mrs. Eva Kor, gave a talk about her personal experience during the Holocaust and definitely she caught the attention of the audience. One will hear a pin drop during the entire talk.
Mrs. Kor is a very good speaker and made us feel how the Jews suffered under Hitler.
The museum has pictures from her family and during the the Holocaust. They were just starting to put up the holograms of some of the surviving victims. one can ask questions and the hologram replies. This was thru the help of Spielberg.
Definitely a place where children, I'd say 10 and over, and adults could experience and learn. There are live speakers at times, holographic interactive stations, wall photos, library and other displays to learn from. Eva Kor was a prisoner during the Holocaust and is an expert on the subject. She has a gem of a Museum in Terre Haute.
This personal story of Eva Kors is told with grace and dignity. Especially in today's atmosphere of division, it is an important story to be told. It is a small museum but powerful in its impact. Please don't skip it. The staff is knowledgeable and it is appropriate for young children, as well, because it makes you questionyour definition of forgiveness
