This is a beautiful museum. It is small, and structured in such a way that one leaves inspired and encouraged. Although there were many tragedies in the Holocaust, there were also many individuals who risked their own lives to save others, and those are beautifully celebrated. This is a must-see for anyone interested in the personal stories of both those... More

This place is founded by survivors, they tell you stories and show you pictures of things you didn't see in school or in movies. They use this to inspire people to remember, not to feel sorry, or bad, but to keep this from ever happening again. It was an experience that will never leave me.

We came here to view a movie, so we didn't have enough time to see much. It's a small museum, but it packs a powerful punch. The audio devices help you go at your own pace, especially if, like me, you want to read, see and hear it all. We'll be back to complete the tour. There's also a very... More

Our 16 year old daughter is actually the one who suggested we go here, and I'm glad she did. We visited on a day that Mr. Michael Jacobs, a survivor was there, so sad to hear his story but what a strong individual. It's a very small museum with several artifacts and many photos, I did like the audio guide... More

Lots of information regarding one of the most brutal periods of our history. There are hundreds of recovered items on display. The most emotional part is the first display that shows the number of Jews who were killed prior to and during World War II. There was also a survivor of the Holocaust in the museum during my visit who... More

Came here with a Groupon and was worth it. I have been to a few Holocaust museums around the country, and my only problem with this one was that it is a little small. But had alot of interesting artifacts and videos. Good place to visit when in Dallas.

This was my first time visiting this location, it was a of course saddening but she'd a lot of light on that time period. I really enjoyed being able to do a self tour.

This Holocaust Museum is a very moving and educational museum. The Leo Frank exhibit that they had was so interesting to learn about. So much prejudice and hatred in this world. Sad, but true. I spent about 2 hours here and learn much. This museum is a must for anyone coming to the Dallas area. Will revisit when I am... More

This museum is right down the block from the Sixth Floor Museum (Book Depository) and highly recommend it. It is a small museum but full of information and very well laid out. Took about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to go through. Part of history no one should ever forget...
