  1. “Excellent visit” Allow 2-3 hours viewing the museum and visitor center. nazi memorabilia for sale authentic for museum tickets. The museum alone cans b 2-3 hours if you enjoy reading all the displays. Excellent educational experience for ages 9 and up. The main film was very good and there are many others within the museum itself. nazi memorabilia for sale authentic
