Making a Window Museum from Home

Holocaust Museum LA invites you to explore your own heritage and life story and create a window display that contains objects that represent you and your identity. Each and every member of the community has an important story to tell, just as the founding Survivors of Holocaust Museum LA did when they established the Museum in 1961. Instructions on how to create your own museum display window can be found below.
