I found the audio recordings of ordinary people sharing their testimonies to be particularly touching and the box car a somber reminder that was quite jarring to see. Just before the exit, there is a meditation room that offers visitors a place to sit quietly,...More

Notthing to say except that is one of the best holocaust museums we ever saw. For those who know history a bit it is impressive. For those who know it a lot it´s the museum that cannot be left behind without see it.

Magnificent Museum a must visit. Self guided tour at your own pace, moving and humbling experience. A shame that this ever happened. Upstairs are many pictures by an artist who captures the dilemma of these people. Reasonably priced.

This is a gem of a museum in the heart of downtown St. Pete. You will leave this place feeling humble, compassionate and respectful of other human beings.

Not only does the museum have a box car from the Holocaust, we were able to see a special presentation on the Bielski brothers. While there are larger museums around the country, this one is excellent for its size.

It was a moving experience for myself as well as my family. The audio-visual displays were well done and very nicely presented so you can follow the historical events with clarity. You should allow a minimum of two hours but maybe four hours if you...More

Three stories of education, a great place to take children to learn the truth surrounding this tragic part of history. Wear good shoes and pictures are allowed I really like that.

I've only been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C., not to the other places you mentioned. The St. Pete museum is smaller than D.C. but well worth your time.
