We look forward to welcoming you to the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education for a special exhibit on RESILIENCE.

Highlighting the actions of children, families, and communities during the Holocaust, this new exhibit asks us to examine WHAT IS RESILIENCE? Examining the Holocaust through this lens changes the way we think about history and connects with our lives today.

The Museum hosts an array of public programs that contribute to enhancing the future of Holocaust, Tolerance, and Human Rights Education. Whether you're visiting with your family, school group, small group, or a teachers' professional development workshop, we look forward to sharing this special exhibit with you.

Cost: $5 per person
Capacity: 25 people per session
Duration: 1-hour visit with tour and presentation by a Museum docent
