When I first went,they had just started revamping the mansion.Staged the displays.They had awesome large artworks on the grounds.Local students from schools collected coins and bought flower seeds for the gardens. It is a must see,whether you are Jewish or not.Just to know and understand the horrible history they faced.

This is a wonderful little museum about the greatest human tragedy. It is especially relevant today as the hatred of the Jewish People has not gone away but simply morphed into the current form and is growing once again. First it was religious hatred of Jews and then it was racial hatred of Jews as depicted in the museum. Now... More

The docent led tour brings you to view the Holocaust on a very personal level. The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center attracts people of all ages and backgrounds to use history to learn very important life lessons.

I have been to Holocaust museums all over North America .In my opinion every person on this planet should go to this or a similiar museum to insure that everyone understands what happened in Europe in the 30's and 40's.

Yes, the Holocaust was real and antisemitism is still with us. This museum, set in the beautiful setting of Glen Cove is a beautiful yet painful reminder of those facts...filled with photos, journals and first hand accounts of the barbarity of Nazi Germany and those who allowed these atrocities to take place and turned a blind eye to it.

The Holocaust was a horrible time in history, and this museum has complete description, photos, and videos to show the horrible conditions people faced. If you want to experience what the place has to offer and read everything, the visit can be over an hour long so be ready to spend a good amount of time here.

This museum was a very moving tribute to the holocaust survivors and what people had to endure to live under Hitler. Puts a perspective on how we treat each other now and how scary it is when we see ourselves or others not given the respect of human dignity.

I wouldn't say "What a wonderful time " I would say that I was brought back in time and experienced the climate of Poland, Germany and Russia from per-war to the end of the war. The museum is set up so well as to lead you on a journey through time It was so extremely informative and well put together... More
