Overview
More
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.

Visiting the Holocaust Museums in every city I visit has become a habit. Yet, I can't avoid the tears that come when I view the horror these poor people went through. This museum is excellent, despite the very grim subject matter.More

This was a small but well put together museum. Very powerful stories about local folks who were subjects of the Holocaust. They are making a larger one as there were plenty of visitors. Vistors self guide with hand held microphones. Again well worth the trip.More
