Must see · History Museum · Museum
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Jerusalem trip simple and quick.

  • It's a Holocaust Museum. Those are rarely happy places, but the beautiful architecture and unique set-up create an informative and immersive experience that everyone visiting Jerusalem should take...  more »
  • We come here for a park around the Museum. A lot of fresh air (it's a mountain with the pine forest) and many interesting sculptures and monuments around.  more »

  • Well-designed, informative, and comprehensive Holocaust museum and memorial. Easy to get to from the tram line 1, and there's a free shuttle that runs near the station to the entrance. Very well organized, lots of pictures, movies, diagrams, maps, and information you may not know. Best part is that it's completely free and it has great views of the mountain ranges nearby.
  • Very informative and attractive museum to understand the WWII and how Jew were killed by Nazi. It’s a sad history showing the loss of humanity in the era of wartime. We need to learn from the history. Need to go the Children Memorial as you will be impressed.
