The Florida Holocaust Museum is currently offering virtual and in-person tours. Virtual tours can be self-guided and any educator can use our new Virtual Tour with their students on our website at no cost.
Another option is a free docent-led Virtual Tour of our permanent exhibition. These free 45-minute tours need to be scheduled at least 1 week in advance. In order to register a school group for a docent-led Virtual Tour, place a tour request online: Tour Request Form
Several teachers from one school can combine their classes for one tour. Tours are not scheduled until you receive a confirmation email and a link to the tour from the Tour Coordinator.
In-person docent-led tours are currently available on Tuesdays only.
