It's hard to believe that such atrocities could be committed by man against man and this museum is should be high on the list of places to visit in Jerusalem. Allow plenty of time (at least a couple of hours) to avoid having to rush and miss any of the moving exhibits and videos.

Yad Vashem is an amazing museum to visit. It is very powerful place. It gives a strong history of the rise of Nazi Germany and the strength and weaknesses of countries that created this holocaust and death of 6 million Jews, and other minorities whose ideals were not in sync with those in power in the European 1930-40's. The details... More

Yad Vashem is a must see when visiting Israel. It gives people insight to the atrocities of the Nazi regime. It is amazing how relevant it is to situations today. The content is intense especially if you have family that was murdered in the Holocaust. It is sad but everyone must know the consequences of leaders preaching hate and xenophobia.

The Holocaust Museum is incredible. It is a sobering experience but one that is so very important for each person to experience while in Israel.

The exhibits have been tastefully presented ,dealing with a very sensitive tragic time in our lives. You cannot visit the location without being moved by what survivors had to say about the occurrences and how people were treated at the hands of the Germans .the exhibits really bring home what had occurred and a fitting rememberence for a subject that...

Very moving, detailed exhibits explain the Holocaust from the rise of Nazism to the liberation of the concentration camps. We were on a tour, so unfortunately we did not get to spend as much time there as I wild have liked. If you really want to appreciate this emotional museum, then plan on spending at least 3-4 hours here. I... More

The most moving museum in the world telling the story of the holocaust from the Jewish perspective...The hall of Names honours the six million jews who perished by Nazis hands. The Children´s Memorial is particularly sad, a single candle reflected infinitely by mirrors while a voice tell the names and ages of the children who died in the extermination camps...... More

Very sobering memorial of what occurred during the Holocaust. We recomend this site for all that visit Jerusalem. A walk through the exterior gardens is a must.

Very emotional experience even though we've been to other Holocaust museums. There are guided tours offered but you need to make reservations in advance. We got quite informative audio guides for 25. We had to slightly rush to get done in 3 hours fir another tour elsewhere. Don't miss this!

It so effectively tells the heart breaking story. You almost feel like you lived through those years and survived. I've been to the Washington DC museum, the one in Terezín, Czech Republic concentration Camp, Dachau concentration camp memorial... I would say this is the most explanatory, thorough and moving.
