This is a very powerful museum. Probably not too interesting for very young kids, but great for 12 and up, I'd say. It's not huge so it doesn't take a long time to see it all. They've really done an excellent job with this museum.

The Holocaust Museum in Houston is small but very informative and has excellent exhibits. It is second only to the one in DC. Everyone should visit this museum. History forgotten is history repeated.

Wow. I don't know how else to describe the Holocaust Museum. When I was maybe 9 years old, my parents organized a church trip with a class they taught and we got to tag along. I have loved visiting this place ever since. It changed...More

Not much to see here. Very similar to the numerous other such places that abound all over. Been there done that. Better use of time elsewhere.

Very educational. I've been to other holocaust museums and they have more going on. Like showing you how they lived while in hiding. Rooms like the gas chamber.They more interactive features then this museum.

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
