The Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center of Nassau County is located in the Wellwyn Preserve in Glen Cove.


Handicapped parking spaces are located right outside the Museum’s main entrance.


The exhibits are on the main floor and can easily be seen from the navigable wide aisles.


All of the people who volunteer here are very pleasant and knowledgeable. On the day of our visit, we were extremely lucky. Our tour included personal recollections from the docent. Her parents were Holocaust survivors who had told her many stories.


The museum has a permanent collection and special exhibitions.


Outside, there is a lovely garden with brick walkways to wander through.


As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, www.holocaust-nas.org,when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
