Create an itinerary including United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Pay tribute to those who lost their lives during the Holocaust at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Adjacent to the National Mall, the museum serves as a memorial as well as a platform for documentation and study of that time. Travel through the exhibits chronologically, from the Nazi rise to power to the liberation. You can experience it all through a series of artifacts, photographs, and personal testimonies. Visit the Hall of Remembrance before you leave to light candles in memory of the victims. An exhibit called Remember the Children: Daniel's Story is designed for kids eight and older, and several other areas are suitable for young children as well as adults. However, children under 11 are discouraged from viewing the permanent exhibit due to the emotional and often horrifying subject matter.

  • Closed do t Covid-19.
  • This was my dream: to pay my respects "in person" to millions of people who might have made our world better. I will always question WHY? did this happen? HOW? The museum is informative and laid out in a sensitive fashion. I keep reading books in an attempt to understand, but I'm not sure I ever will. Thank you, Washington D.C., for making this available to the world, and at no cost. It's a beautiful tribute to beautiful lives so needlessly lost.
