view web site ›'s insider take:

This museum, which opened in 1993 next to the National Mall, tells the story of Holocaust victims in a personal, harrowing way. Visitors board a freight train, the way victims en route to the concentration camps did, and hear recordings of survivors' recollections of life in the camps. Exhibits track the rise of the Nazi machine and the mass murder of six million Jews and countless European minorities. A more positive display traces the heroic efforts of others in Europe to shelter and save Jews. Tickets are given out in the morning (starting at 10 a.m.) for that day's visit, but since the lines are often long, it's best to reserve in advance on or by calling 800-400-9373.
