This museum focuses on the direct links between Richmond, VA and the holocaust via those who survived and moved to Richmond. The museum has a lot to see to educate future generations on an event that should never be allowed to be repeated. The attached...More

Whether you are Jewish or not, you owe it to yourself to visit this museum. The reenactment of the timeline of Hitler's Atrocities are unbelievable. You will go in as someone who is maybe sketch and will leave a believer. The Holocaust museum puts you...More

We visited the Holocaust Museum while we were in Richomnd to see WWW Monday Night Raw. It is was very interested learning about the history of the Jews and the torture these poor kids and adults went through. The history was great.

The old building that houses this museum is very cool, and the museum has great exhibits and is very educational. One of the best museums in Richmond for sure.

I thought this museum was well done. It was surprising to see one in Richmon, not sure why there’s a museum here other than maybe a large Jewish population. It’s worth the visit. Edgar Allan Poe’s museum is down the street.

The location is a bit out of the way but worth the search. There is sufficient parking close to the building. The presentation is well organized and covers the period from the early 1930s through the years after the war. There are lots of photos...More
