Serving as both a children's educational museum and memorial, Yad LaYeled has two main goals: to commemorate the million and a half children who perished during the Holocaust and to continuously tell the story of the children who survived.
For adult visitors: We have guided tours that can be incorporated into group visits to the Ghetto Fighters' House. The main focus of these tours is to introduce the complex story of the Jewish children who lived in Europe during World War II.
The guided tour can revolve around a specific theme such as: Holocaust education, Holocaust Remembrance, Jewish children during the Holocaust, Janusz Korczak.

For young visitors: school delegations, camp programs, young leadership missions
All the exhibitions at Yad LaYeled are especially suited to young visitors from the age of 10 and feature three-dimensional displays, as well as audio and video testimonies. Throughout the museum, the story of Jewish children, who lived in different European countries during the Holocaust, unfolds. Told from the point of view of the child survivors, their stories are based on various sources: diaries written during the war, as well as personal testimonies and memoirs written after the war.
In addition to the museum exhibitions, Yad Layeled offers a number of specialized workshops in plastic art, music, drama, creative writing and movement.
