4.8
#1 of 258 in Museums in Israel
Poignant and well curated, Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center mourns millions of genocide victims and lends visitors insight into the experiences of European Jews before, during, and after World War II. The museum complex includes the main history wing ending in a dizzying hall of commemoration, a memorial to children who perished in the Holocaust, and a gallery of Holocaust-related art. Walk the trails of the museum grounds to find additional memorials to the "righteous gentiles," non-Jews who risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbors.

  • Maybe it's worth the visit for the historical content, but don't expect to see much. It's all dark in there, with funeral voices and pictures of people who died in the Holocaust that comes after each name with bright sparklers on the ceiling. It gives a bad-be on the way out, heavy energy. If I'm not emotionally well, I don't recommend it!
