Not only does the museum have a box car from the Holocaust, we were able to see a special presentation on the Bielski brothers. While there are larger museums around the country, this one is excellent for its size.

Three stories of education, a great place to take children to learn the truth surrounding this tragic part of history. Wear good shoes and pictures are allowed I really like that.

This was not the best holocaust museum we ever visited. The one in Washington, DC was much larger and more intricate. The one in Israel so graphic I had to walk-out in tears after only 10 minutes. But, I still learned a few things from...More

This museum offers a great learning experience to understand and feel the pain and agony of the time during the World War II. This serves as an inspiration to nations to understand the basic tenet of war, it belongs to no-body. Everybody in a war...More

It's sad that the holocaust happened but they have the museum laid out very nicely and tastefully. They had the second floor closed to put in a new exhibition but the 1st and 3rd floors were good and informative.

I've only been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C., not to the other places you mentioned. The St. Pete museum is smaller than D.C. but well worth your time.
