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 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.

Visiting family in the area and decided visit a few of the area's museums while everyone was at work. One of the choices was the Holocaust Museum and I'm very glad we made it there! Not an overly large or elaborate, this museum presented the history in a very powerful and moving way! If you have only a short time... More

We visited here on a homeschool field trip and were really impressed by the museum, staff, displays and the tour we were given. If you have time at all it's definitely worth the visit!
