The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is America's National Institution for the documentation, study, and intereptaion of Holocaust history, and serves as this country's memorial to the millions of people murdered during the Holocaust.
It is a very good museum dedicated to the Holocaust...the shoes are what got to me, the thousands and thousands of shoes that used to be worn by people like you & me, secretaries, doctors, lawyers, store owners, moms, dads, kids...that were killed for a man's craziness & madness.
ADMISSION IS FREE!!

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a must see. I can't say it is enjoyable but it is something everyone should learn about and go visit even if just to pay respect to the thousands killed. It is not recommended for children under 11 but there were a lot of children in there when I went. They have tall walls around televisions showing more graphic images so that children can't see. You need a timed pass to get in here which you have to stand in line for or you can buy tickets on line for a very small fee ( as i did ) which works out well if you don't have time to wait around.
National Holocaust Museum. This is the nations tribute to the 6 million who perished during The Holocaust: 1933-1945. Situated on the Mall, the museum takes up several floors that detail the history of the Nazi Party and the Holocaust. Audio-Visual displays aid the visitor in understanding the evnts depicted in the numerous photos on view. Various items are displayed as well such as a collection of drawings made by children inside the Warsaw Ghetto.
This museum is a must for every visitor. It is a fitting memorial to those who perished. One of the most sobering exhibits in the museum is a hall that includes, amongst other things, a room with a large pile of shoes, worn by the doomed.
