The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance offers a core exhibit that exposes three key events that occurred on "One Day During the Holocaust". A special travelling exhibit, video graphed eyewitness testimonies of survivors, and artifacts offer visitors a well-rounded understanding of this horrific part of world history. Visitors leave the Museum with answers to the question, how could this happen?

Due to the somber topic and graphic historical photographs in the exhibits, the Museum is not recommended for children under the age of 10.

However, parents should note that this Museum hosts more than 30,000 school children each year. The audio guided tour teaches the differences between bystander and Upstander behavior and the value of choices.

Parking was $7 and was pretty close to this location. Admission was reasonable. when we arrived, there wasn't many folks on location. To hear all the information, one uses a "phone" and listen. It was small but loaded with information. This was far better than the Holocaust Museum in DC.....not even close. Very through and easy to follow. No additional... More

This is a must go to. It was a great deal of emotions, felt major tugs on the heart strings. Very humbling, hard to understand how people can do such to others. Makesure you have tissues. I don't feel it's something for young, teens maybe depending.

This was a nicely put together museum honoring a very important part of our history. It is small and easy to cover in about an hour, and the testimonials of those who experienced the Holocaust are very touching.

I have long had a fascination with that terrible period in European history known as the Holocaust. The period is normally bordered by the years 1933-1945. During t hose terrible twelve years, the Nazi Germans murdered perhaps 11,000,000 people, among whom were 6,000,000 Jews, fully 60% of all European Jewry. Such a dreadful story needs a continuous retelling, and this... More

The museum is small but well worth the visit. Each person gets their own individual headset for an individualized experience of the museum. The day we visited, there was a special guest speaker who was a survivor of the Holocaust. It was interesting to hear his story. There is a small gift shop section, with lots of neat equality things.

I am a homeschooling mom always looking for interactive ways to engage my children in learning. Prior to visiting the museum, we watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and the Diary of Anne Frank and talked about the Holocaust. The museum put it all into perspective for them. It is really small, but it is very interactive. They give... More
