Emotionally draining and educational experience. You need to spend hours here to fully appreciate everything on each floor. (especially the 2nd floor).

We had limited time and wish we would've had more to spend here. It is imperative that our children experience places such as this to know world history.

Excellent permanent collection, great art, clear explanation of what you see. The exhibit Unorthodox looked to me like thrift shop finds masquerading as art, basically pretentious and useless. I would come again just to see the permanent collection. It is amazing, rich, beautiful, inspiring and...More

Not everything was from the Holocaust. There is a more than 5,000 year history of the Jewish people. The museum presents the heritage in a beautiful and education way.

We really enjoyed this museum! The displays were very beautiful and were easy to understand. They give you a radio that explains all of the exhibits. A must see when in New York City.

In addition to its famed status as a Holocaust History Center and a Jewish Culture and History Museum, they are known for wonderful performances of musical and theatrical events that record the Jewish experience. We have seen many Klezmer and Cantorial concerts. But most recently,...More

Located with views of NY Harbor, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, this museum's collection memorializes the Holocaust. It is a permanent reminder of inhumanity at its highest level but also celebrates the accomplishments of its survivors after the war.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

La visita dura una hora y media a dos horas en general. Si usas la guia de audio gratis, que es disponible in Espanol, la visita dura una hora y media o menos si prefieres.
