A visit you should spend at least 3 hours on. Strongly recommend the guided tour. Many people with small children, would recommend not bring children both out of respect and the heavy content. Forever touched by this!

The concentration camp was well re-purposed as a memorial; a good job was done in providing a lot of information about what was done there, but also about specific individuals who were there. The museum was very extensive and informative. We did not do any...More
