Be sure to leave plenty of time to listen to all of the information and see everything...we had no idea there would be so much to see and learn there! This is a very educational and informative experience...definitely worth the visit!!!

Very good experience. If you like to take your time and stop at all of the exhibits, allow a good four hours (at least). Very worth the time!

Great place to learn about the Holocaust. Plan on time to really get engrossed in the exhibits. It isn't happy or cheerful history, but if we don't know our history we are destine to repeat it. And as with the holocaust, repeating history isn't always good.

If possible, request a docent to tour the museum. It usually requires larger groups with 30 days notice, but they will work with you on this.

From Our Editors

The Florida Holocaust Museum, located in the heart of St. Petersburg's museum and art district, was founded in 1992 with the help of prominent Holocaust scholars such as Schindler's List author Thomas Keneally. The museum's three floors feature permanent exhibitions, a library, and smaller rotating exhibits. Housed on the museum's first floor is the core exhibition, History, Heritage and Hope, which documents the Holocaust through recollections of survivors and original artifacts, including Boxcar #113 069-5—one of the few remaining Nazi railroad boxcars. The third floor is home to the museum's other permanent exhibition, Kaddish in Wood: Woodcarvings by Dr. Herbert Savel, showcasing his woodcarvings of French children who perished during the Holocaust.

A leading force for change in the community and beyond, part of the museum's mission is to spread its message of tolerance by continuously collecting and displaying contemporary artistic responses to the Holocaust and other genocides. Their hope is to educate and inspire visitors to learn from the past in order to be the upstanders of today. The museum makes Kaddish in Wood—as well as 18 other traveling exhibitions—available to museums, historical societies, and community centers nationwide. From scholars reading their latest work to survivors discussing their experiences, the museum's events also shed light on the past in an effort to prevent future genocide.
