According to the United States Holocaust museum, the holocaust museum exterior seems bad, but it contains elements of concealment deception, disengagement, and duality. The building is encased in limestone which is common in Washington. The limestone and brick engages neoclassical Bureau of Engraving and printing to the south and the Victorian red-brick Sydney R. Yates building to the North. Compared with the National Center for Civil Rights it is more rustic while the center is all about showing displays in the most professional way possible inside a building, the holocaust museum uses the outside environment which could appeal to more individuals.
