This museum does an excellent job of portraying the horrors of the holocaust and, although they have permanent exhibits, they often have special exhibits on display.

Visited with my mom. Very sad but also very informative. I learned a lot. They definitely achieved their goal of bringing awareness to this dark time in our history. Appreciated how they made it personal by including survivors in the Richmond area.
