Tips from locals

It's FREE! This is definitely one of the venues in DC that is well worth visiting. It is a little overwhelming to take it all in, but I would judge the 3 hours an average time to see the museum in its entirety. The history, significance and experience of the Holocaust Museum makes it a must see…
Adjacent to the national mall. It’s America’s official tribute to Holocaust history. Incredibly moving.
