My wife and I have been to Holocaust museums around the world and surprisingly, Houston has done as fine a job as any country, including Israel.

Not for young children, but teenagers and older would benefit from seeing this place. The exhibits are fairly self-explanatory.

DC is what I would rate phenomenal...no comparison. BUT that doesn't mean Houston isn't any good. Its much smaller, yes, but its educational, lots of videos running different clips with actual footage, artifacts throughout. More
