Policies

Accommodating Small Groups

Due to the high volume of requests for tours, interaction with a Holocaust survivor speaker is only provided to groups with a minimum of 20 people. Groups between 12 and 20 people will be offered a guided museum tour led by a museum educator which includes:

  •  Brief historical overview
  •  Thematic film with discussion
  •  Digitally recorded Holocaust survivor testimony with discussion

Groups of 12 people or fewer are welcome to make an appointment during our regular business hours to tour the museum on their own. To check availability of museum, please contact Daniel Panneton at 416-635-2883 x 5495.

Regrettably, due to regularly scheduled tours and space restrictions, walk-ins cannot always be accommodated.
