SCROLL TO EXPLORE

MUSEUM EXPANSION

Holocaust Museum LA is expanding for the next generation. 

NEED.

Museum space is at capacity and requests for student tours and public workshops continue to increase. The number of visitors to the Museum has increased by 400% since 2011. As a result, we have been forced to turn away schools and tour groups. Ten years from now most survivors will be gone. We need to take every opportunity to hear their experiences and carry on their stories.

WHAT IS BUILDING TRUTH?

Building Truth is our extraordinary effort to raise $50M to create the Jona Goldrich Campus, designed by award-winning architect Hagy Belzberg, with new indoor and outdoor spaces that will double our footprint in Pan Pacific Park, allowing us to amplify our reach and impact, and increase our visibility.

 

A new Learning Center Pavilion along The Grove Drive, adjacent to the existing building, will include a dedicated theater for USC Shoah Foundation’s Dimensions in Testimony; a 200-seat theater for film screenings, concerts, conferences and public programs; outdoor reflective spaces; two classrooms for large student groups and programs for younger audiences; and 2,500 sq. ft. of special exhibit space. In addition, a new Boxcar Pavilion built to house an authentic boxcar found outside of Majdanek death camp in Poland will be constructed on top of the existing building.

THE EXPANSION
WILL

  • Increase our annual visitor capacity to 500,000 by 2030, including 150,000 students.

  • Enable us to expand our educational programs and preserve Holocaust survivor testimonies through cutting-edge technology, to keep students and the public informed, engaged, and connected.

  • Allow the Museum to display new and more exciting temporary and traveling exhibits than ever before, in addition to curating exhibits from our own collection.
