Student Tours

Sponsored by
Jack & Goldie Nomberg Foundation

We are currently accepting reservations for virtual and in-person school tours. Please note that we experience our highest demand between January and May, so we kindly request that you schedule your group's tour as soon as possible. 

All education programs are aligned with the California Content Standards for English-Language Arts and History-Social Science. Student tours are customized per class and available for students in 5th grade and up. Our staff tailors each tour to meet the educational needs of your students.

As mandated by the Museum's founding survivors, all student tours are FREE. To continue providing free Holocaust education programming, donations are greatly appreciated.

Tours are docent-led, artifact-focused, and inquiry based. Docents engage students through analytical thinking and closely examining the Museum’s exhibitions and Holocaust era artifacts.

Tours are available in Hebrew and Spanish by request.

In Person Student Tours

Holocaust Museum LA is pleased to welcome students back to the museum for in-person tours.

  • 1 chaperone per 15 students required

  • Tours are between 2 and 3.5 hours 

  • Museum cannot hold student lunches or bags. Students must leave everything on buses, exceptions only for necessary needed supplies.

  • In-person tours are available every day,  Sunday through Saturday, 9am-5pm.

In-person survivor and survivor descendant talks can be scheduled.

Holocaust Museum LA is currently expanding our campus to accommodate more students and visitors. During construction, our bus drop-off lane is temporarily unavailable. After scheduling your school tour, you will receive detailed instructions on the alternative arrangement for buses and drop off. 

We kindly request that you allocate 20-30 additional minutes before your tour start time to accommodate the adjusted drop-off process. Your understanding and cooperation during this transitional phase are greatly appreciated.
