Docent-Led Museum Virtual Tour

The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The Museum is dedicated to teaching the members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides.

The Museum is home to the permanent exhibition: History, Heritage and Hope, which uses original artifacts, historical photographs and documents to tell the story of the Holocaust with a special emphasis on the personal stories of local survivors. 

While The Museum focuses on the history of persecution of Jews during the Holocaust, we also teach about the persecution of other victim groups by the Nazi regime: Roma and Sinti, Slavs, the disabled, homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, political opponents, and others.
