The Florida Holocaust Museum is a Holocaust museum located at 55 5th Street South in St. Petersburg, Florida. Formerly known as the Holocaust Center, the museum officially changed to its current name in 1999. Founded in 1992, it moved to its current location in 1998. It is one of the largest Holocaust museums in the United States.
As part of its education program, teachers can borrow Teaching Trunks with material for teaching about the Holocaust for free.
The museum houses an actual box car (from Gdynia, Poland) that transported victims of the Nazi regime to the concentration camps, which rests on original track. Aside from the permanent exhibit, the museum also has revolving temporary exhibits.
