Every detail covered in depth. Expect to read. This is not for those seeking entertainment. Terrible in its successful rendition of history

Its truly a moving experience. Its heart wrenching but also uplifting. It shows the worst of man but also the best in humanity

HI Yes - you can show them your phone with the bar codes. I think that is how we actually got in also. My daughter in law had them on her phone. This is a very moving museum.

The graphic pictures are hidden behind taller walls so smaller children can not see. It takes time to work through the museum and younger children would not understand and might get bored. There will have to be a... More
