Learn the narrative of the Holocaust through artifacts, videos and personal stories in the Permanent Exhibition, and go deeper at special exhibitions such as Remember the Children: Daniel’s Story, recommended for kids ages 8 and up. Admission to the museum is free, but entry to the Permanent Exhibition is done via timed pass March through August – you can reserve online beforehand. Special exhibitions do not require a timed pass.”
