Learn About One of History’s Most Devastating Tragedies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

The United States Holocaust Museum serves as America’s memorial to the millions of people affected by the Holocaust. The mission of the museum is to share knowledge about the Holocaust, preserve the memory of those who lost their lives, and reflect upon the horrible events of the Holocaust.

Located adjacent to the National Mall in Washington, the museum strives to broaden the understanding of the history of the Holocaust through exhibitions, artifacts, and educational events. The exhibits at the United States Holocaust Museum are always changing. Current exhibits include “Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust,” where you can learn about how ordinary people were essential when it came to the termination of Nazi policies, “Cambodia 1975-1979,” a history of the Khmer Rogue government, and “Remember the Children: Daniel’s Story,” where you can see the Holocaust through the eyes of a child. The permanent exhibition at the museum includes a narrative history of the Holocaust and features artifacts, video footage, and countless personal stories.

Tickets to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum are free. The museum is open every day except Yom Kippur and Christmas Day from 10 a.m. to 5:20 p.m.
