The third-largest Holocaust Museum in the world!

This world-class museum offers memorable experiences that are not to be missed. Dedicated to teaching the universal lessons of the Holocaust, the Museum inspires all ages to take a stand against hatred, prejudice and indifference today, and for generations to come. Travel through history as you explore life before, during and after the Holocaust, with over 500 artifacts donated by Chicagoland Holocaust Survivors. Step into an authentic German rail car, visit impressive galleries and contemplative spaces, both indoors and out. Leave inspired to make a difference and take a stand for humanity.
