The Holocaust museum in Jerusalem is not only a memorial to the 6 million Jews that were killed during the WW2, but it is also a big research and educational center on the holocaust. Trust me, it is very sobering to visit a museum dedicated to the genocide in the place where Jews live. The museum remembers the past and ensures the memory will remain for future generations.
NOTE: If you are traveling with kids, keep in mind that children younger than 10 will not be permitted in the museum. PRICE: free to enter. Israel museum is the biggest one in the Middle East.
