Yad Vashem Among World's Top 10 Museum

Israel’s Holocaust museum and memorial, Yad Vashem, was ranked by the website TripAdvisor as one of the top ten museums in the world.

Yad Vashem, located in Jerusalem, was ranked tenth out of 25 museums selected as part of TripAdvisor’s “Travelers’ Choice” awards, based upon online ratings and comments by tourists and travelers.

It is the second year in a row that Yad Vashem has been in the top ten.

The rankings, released last week, placed Yad Vashem behind institutions such as the top-rated Art Institute of Chicago and the second-place National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, but ahead of heavyweight attractions such as the Louvre and the British Museum.

This year’s ranking is actually a come-down for Yad Vashem, which ranked number four in last year’s rankings. According to the museum’s website, it draws some one million visitors per year.
