This is a very moving museum, if you get the chance to visit take the tour and listen to a Holocaust survivor. You will want to go back.

My daughter and I visited with 4 of my grandkids, ages 13, 16, 16, and 20, We did the audio tour, listened to the a survivor's story of his experience during the holocaust, and visited the gift shop. It was an experience all of us will remember--the truth of the Holocaust. It was real. We won't forget.

Plan to spend at least half the day. We self toured in the AM and then went to lunch. Returned in the afternoon to hear a survivor speak. Took our 13 year old daughter. A very moving and valuable experience!

Very interesting. Even though I am not much for tours, the guide was great and put a lot of history into prospective. Definitely worth your time.

We always find the talk given by one of the survivors to be the most interesting and informative. You will never be able to grasp everything in one visit. It is a remarkable place. We are lucky to have it near us.

Try to time your visit to hear one of the survivors talk about their experiences. We had Michael Weiss. He was amazing

Try to get in on a guided tour or when a survivor is speaking. We liked it better than the Holocaust museum in D.C.

From Our Editors

Named one of the city's best cultural museums by CBS Detroit, the Holocaust Memorial Center is among America’s first Holocaust museums. For more than 25 years, the HMC has memorialized the senseless murder of millions, promoting tolerance while sending out a call to action to prevent future discrimination, hate crimes, bullying, and genocide by keeping alive the memory of the Holocaust and the lives it claimed.

Starting near the museum's lobby, an illustrated timeline tracing 4,000 years of Jewish history leads into The Museum of European Jewish Heritage, which highlights Judaism through artifacts and displays. From there, a ramp descending beyond a 22-foot window display of Nazi propaganda leads into an exhibit on The Final Solution. Here, displays and audiovisual installations usher visitors toward the Survivors' Theater, where live presentations by Detroit-area survivors illuminate the atrocities' personal costs. Daily tours are led by the museum's caring, expert educators, who guide guests through the exhibits while encouraging them to internalize the lessons for use in their own lives.

New to the museum is the Weisberg Gallery, where a Holocaust-era boxcar stands as a reminder of the scale of the period's atrocities. The museum also welcomes traveling exhibits such as Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow, a collection depicting the story of Jewish professors fleeing Nazism and finding teaching positions at historically black universities. The exhibit explores the encounter between these scholars and their students, the impact the relationships had on one another, and the effect on the Civil Rights Movement and American society.

Post-war exhibits cover the Nuremberg Trials, honor the righteous individuals who risked their lives to resist the Nazis or save Jewish lives during the war, and pay homage to those who perished with a memorial flame. The museum also houses a well-stocked library, where guests can research their genealogy with materials dedicated to European Jewish history. Beyond its core exhibits, the HMC hosts special exhibits encompassing photographs, art, and history, in addition to sending survivors to speaking engagements throughout the city and hosting the Kindertransport Memory Quilt, whose patches represent the experiences of Jewish youth rescued from Eastern Europe.
