It was a long drive... when I got to flossenberg the sky became overcast-and it was slightly windy. I felt sick as I was leaving the crematorium...I've dealt with death before but being in this place was a lot worst than anything I've had to deal with in my life.

This was an amazing historical trip. We went here before heading to the Flossenburg castle ruins. There is so much sadness and history here. We took our 7 year old son and 10 year old daughter. They are VERY well behaved. I Would not suggest this place for young children that like to run wild as it is very disrespectful.

Small museum but very well preserved. Full of powerful history with detailed information of every location.

This is a must visit. It doesn't cost anything to pay your respects. There is also an old stone fortress that you can visit that overlooks the camp. Lots of information and never busy.

There are some many of these camps in Germany and other countries. This community has done a wonder job in bringing history back for people to visit and learn from.

This museum and memorial appears to be relatively new, but does an incredible job of depicting the conditions and history of the camp. Very few visitors when we toured in August. Would highly recommend.

I took my sister and daughter here first during the summer and we had a good visit. I brought my cousin and his friend in the fall as well. It is, of course, a very sad place because of the things that happened there. It is a free museum and the collection of items in the museum have been well... More

Excellent place to get the feel of the horror of the Nazi Extermination Events. Only a few buildings remain, but the crematorium is fully intact. Two large buildings now hold displays of artifacts and pictures from the camp. A Christian chapel and Jewish place of worship pay honor to those who perished. The cemetary of ashes is home to cement... More

Visit with my almost 7 year old. Was a bit hesitant about bringing him at first but we skipped some of the narration, I explained things in an age appropriate manner and I'm so glad we visited. The entire experience is so heartbreaking yet powerful and moving and drives home the horrors of the past. A visit should be required... More
