This small museum is chronologically arranged. The docent, Steve Brazilian took us from the beginnings of the Nazi movement,through the horrors of genocide, to the Nuremberg Trials and finally the liberation of the Jewish survivors. All along we learned the personal stories of the families who were affected by this horrific event in history.

A group of 25 visited the museum and each came away so enlightened with the details of what happened during those terrible years. Our guide was so informative. He was a great story teller. So glad we took the time to visit the museum.

Take the guided tour ($10) - one and a half hours but you can leave anytime you want. Very informative. So important to learn from the past in order to avoid the same mistakes in the future!

During my wife and my recent vacation to Naples, we had occasion to go to the Holocaust Museum and Education Center. We had a fabulous dosun named Stu (We highly recommend that if you visit this museum, you should plan to go on one of the two tours during the day--1:00 and 2:30 pm). At the beginning of the tour,...

The guided tour was very educational. Lots of memorabilia that let you realize how real the experience was for so very many victims.

This museum is more than just education, the materials are thought provoking and deliver an important message.....not a glorious part of history other than the bravery and tenacity of the victims, but a story we must never forget.

I am not Jewish, but I am a Civil Rights activist so I approached this museum with a fair degree of curiosity. Our docent taught me so much more than the typical history book! It's well worth your time.

Herb, our guide, was exceptionally well-prepared & as the previous reviewer stated, passionate in sharing his knowledge. He provided a brief yet comprehensive & powerful dialogue on historical context of the rise of Nazism, the lack of humanity demonstrated by the Nazis, & the outcomes of the Holocaust. It was not difficult for us to draw parallels with much of... More

The Holocaust Museum was started in 1998 as a school project and has grown into this treasure with personal effects from local survivors and liberators. I recommend timing your visit to include the docent led tour, at 1:00 and 2:30 weekdays. Small in space but jam packed with history and artifacts. You won't want to miss it.
