This was such a cool museum! The admission prices is a little steep, but it technically covers two visits (next day only), which was perfect. We saw about half of the museum on the first day and came back the next day to see the rest! The permanent exhibits were just as amazing as the rotating exhibits and there was so much to see, I probably could have come back a third day to see even more.

I totally recommend this museum. Initially, I thought the price to be a little steep, but as soon as I watched the orientation film, I knew I was in for a treat. Like the Holocaust Memorial Museum, there are attractions inside that serve as sobering reminders of of the past, and like the Holocaust Memorial Museum, you can spend all day learning here.
