Words From Fellow Students

“The audio-guides were very useful and helped explain a lot of content in the museum. It was very informative. Also, the concentration camp screens taught me a lot of new things.”

“This is a great place for projects or any homework about the Holocaust. There is plenty of information given and it is great for people who do not have internet access.”



The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust offers a range of different opportunities for students who would like to get involved. 

The Museum offers internships to high school and college students. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Holocaust, gain experience in the museum field and earn school credits. We are proud to offer two paid, full-time summer internships for qualified undergraduate students between the months of June and August.
