Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Opened in 1997 and expanded in 2003, this museum offers one of the most moving cultural experiences in the city. Detailing the horrific attacks on (and inherent joys of) Jewish life during the past century, the collection consists of 24 documentary films, 2,000 photographs and 800 cultural artifacts, many of which have been donated by Holocaust survivors and their families. The Memorial Garden features English artist Andy Goldsworthy’s permanent installation Garden of Stones: 18 fire-hollowed boulders, each planted with a dwarf oak sapling.
