United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Recommended
A deeply moving, wholly absorbing history lesson awaits visitors to this large museum-research complex, conceived "to commemorate the dead and to educate the living." Occupying nearly 2 acres of land adjacent to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, just off the Mall, the striking edifice houses a compelling permanent exhibit that focuses on the Nazi extermination of millions of Jews and others during World War II.
