First, I would visit without children if you are interested in doing a lot of reading. Our kids got bored quickly. There are a lot of stories to read. I was expecting more artifacts. You get a card at the beginning and learn the story...More

Every visitor to the Holocaust Memorial will come away touched. This is one of those moments that speaks for itself. No words can adequately describe the experience.

My daughter is 11 and a real history person. The average time in this museum is 1.5 to 2 hours. We spent 4 hours there. Excellent.

The Holocaust Museum in DC gave me a lot to think about. The experience of visiting this place is sad, as you would expect. For me, the most moving exhibit is the walkway that visitors can walk upon. Surrounding this walkway is a tunnel on...More

You can not come and visit this museum without getting emotional. Even though you know the history, it is still incredibly powerful to see first hand accounts. The shoe exhibit at the end is exceptionally difficult to observe

This is a very sad place but most informative. I had no idea of what went on prior to and during the war to so many people. It certainly opened my eyes to so many things. It is history and certainly informative.

This is a well laid out museum that tells you the story from beginning to end. Make sure to watch the short film on how Hitler gained power to better understand how this even happened. It is on the first portion of the exhibit. Make...More

As we move further away from WW II, this museum is a reminder of the atrocities that were heaped on the Jewish people and others.

An 8 hour tour of DC generally does not have time for the Holocaust. I think the US Capitol tour is more important. If you have children less tha age 13 you might consider doing just Daniel’s Story at the Holocaust which... More

From what I recall there is a children’s area on the ground floor. But as already advised it is good to talk with the child first. Let them know what to expect. I’m in my sixties and found it very emotional and draining... More

We bought ours the day before and got tickets for 11:45. Id check around noon the day before at least to be sure. Some days you can walk right in-others you’d be out of luck.
