Whats the Holocaust Museum like?

My school takes a trip to DC every 2 years and I signed up to go. But where going to the Holocaust museum. I really don't wanna go because I really don't like things about the holocaust. I mean I like really don't like things about it, I saw the Boy in the stripped Pajamas movie and had nightmares for about a week. So I was wondering if anybody could tell me what the museum is like, Is it like a normal one. Im serous im really really scared about going but I know i cant stay back.

    That Ricky guy is a jacka$$ - ignore him.

    It is NOT scary - it is, however, extremely sad, hearth breaking even.

    I've seen grown men cry in there.

    It WILL leave an impression on your soul that you will carry for the rest of your life.

    I think it should be one of those mandatory things you have to do in school --- see the Holocaust Museum.

    More than 8 million school children have been through the museum.

    It contain more than 12,750 artifacts, 49 million pages of archival documents, 80,000 historical photographs, 200,000 registered survivors, 1,000 hours of archival footage, 84,000 library items, and 9,000 oral history testimonies.

    Go to the sites, look at the photos, prepare yourself prior to going so you will be ready.

    You'll be fine kiddo, I promise.

    Mere words cannot describe the experience. I gently urge you not to reject it, because if we forget the horror, it'll be all to easy for your generation or the next to repeat it against other human beings. You wouldn't want your little sister or your children to be thus victimized, and only you and people like you can prevent those with evil in their hearts from beginning another Holocaust. Contrary to the first answer, there are no corpses hanging in that museum...

    the Holocaust museum and the Tours of Horrors in Berlin were very sad and Uncomfortable

    but the saddest place i have ever been was Auschwitz especially when you realize that the school children 3 bus loads who were Crying were all from German schools

    It took me days to shake the felling because after Auschwitz we went to Krakow

    it's very tastefully put together. if you don't want to look at certain things, they have them blocked so that you can decide if you want to see it or not - they do that for the more disturbing parts.
