Visited the Holocaust Museum. Very heartwrenching and heartwarming experience. The displays were very moving. A very inclusive museum for such a small building. Thanks to the donations from a great benifactor.

Not too many jewish people in El Paso so this place probably doesn't get a whole lot of interest. However, jewish or not, I would think that anybody who attended would be interested in this, as ghoulish as it may be.

This is a wonderfully powerful museum experience. There are images that may not be suitable for young children, however, these are behind an area with clear notice of this, and the videos also give warning. Parking is free as is the museum experience (donations are accepted). Parking is at the museum.

Very somber tribute to a tumultuous period in history. They have a range of artifacts, which have been presented in the least possible graphic way when you consider that the subject they deal with is highly violent and graphic. It is a very humbling experience to go through this museum, to say the least and you come out of it... More

This is a well-thought-out and well-run museum. They take care not to traumatize children with explicit photos. It is small enough that you can go through it in a couple of hours, but still very comprehensive and detailed.

We arrived at3:35 pm and were met with a darkened exhibit. The executive director kindly turned on the lights and we went through the museum in 30 minutes. It clearly and effectively gives a factual narrative of the events leading up to, the exterminations themselves and the after effects. Make a donation in your way out. Well done.

Even though this is a small museum, it actually transmit the suffering of many jews in the war. It is well kept and they only ask for donations. It is a MUST for many El Paso citizens and visitors.

I did a museum web search and found this little gem of a museum. My wife and I visited it the next day and were very impressed. It is so moving and will create lots of emotions in you as you travel though the journey that so many suffered. I am thankful for people who keep this place going. We... More

I have been here twice. What an eye opening experience. You can really see what went on in Nazi Germany with the Jewish people. Many, many artifacts and exhibits. Fun, yet interesting and awesome.
