The museum is quite small & is a bit pricey for the size. However, the material given is incredible. You get a head set for a guided tour and each display has multiple areas that give tour information. The museum is powerful & will further education you on the atrocities that occurred during this dark period of world history. The... More

While this museum is very small it is also very powerful. A bit pricey ($10) for admission, but you do get a headset. I eavesdropped on a tour...I recommend it! There was a holocaust survivor signing his book at the museum as well.

While I applaud their attempt to educate the public on this Horrible time in history, I was disappointed in this particular museum. The layout was a little confusing with no clear designations on where and which way to go. Quite a few of the items on display were Imitations instead of authentic. I also thought the admission price of 10.00... More

Purchased this excursion on Groupon. Even though the musuem was small, the power of the information was significant. It was a self guided tour with headphones, so you can go at your own pace. It is a must to see when you are in Dallas, so people will never forget this horrific time in history.

I am very glad we were able to see this museum. The staff was incredibly friendly and did not rush us through it (it was closing time when we left). I was displeased with it being all audio. There were so many pictures and stories but to think of listening to the audio on every one of them was very... More

This is one of those museums that you wouldn't describe as a fun time, but feel compelled to see as the subject matter is so important. Very moving experience with tons of information on the holocaust and it's survivors. Don't forget to check out the temporary exhibit before you leave; when I went it was about Greek/Albanian Muslims protecting Jews... More

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
