Took our 2 teens over the holiday break to visit DC and knew the US Holocaust Memorial Museum was a must visit. Even though we had visited before without our children we still found it to be as emotional as the first visit. It is...More

Very moving. This is a museum that makes you really think, and you need time to take in everything you are reading, seeing, and hearing. Exceptional museum - not like most others in DC where you come to enjoy yourself, but it is very powerful...More

A well documented exhibit of the holocaust; It is worth visiting several times since there is so much to observe and obsorb and reflect. I recommend the food in the cafeteria.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a remarkable opportunity for all of us. It is a thorough and sensitive treatment of a dark period in world history. The exhibits should be required viewing for everyone. Let's start with the folks in Congress. Never Forget.

Parking is hard in DC. Best to park at a metro station in VA or MA and take the metro.
