Built in 1996, the mission of the Virginia Holocaust Museum is to provide visitors with a historically accurate portrayal of the events and activities that make up the Holocaust during WWII. Walking through the galleries of the museum would be akin to taking a journey back in time. There are recreated structures of concentration and ghetto camps for visitors to fully understand what Holocaust victims had undergone in those areas.

At the museum, visitors may also experience riding a cattle car and boarding the ?St. Louis? ship. Finally, visitors may also crawl into a tiny hiding place which had served as safe haven for thirteen persons who went in hiding for nine months to escape the horrors of the Holocaust.

If joining a docent group tour, visitors would be greeted with a thirty-minute introductory presentation, the Ipson Saga, upon arriving at the site.
