The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance offers a core exhibit that exposes three key events that occurred on "One Day During the Holocaust". A special travelling exhibit, video graphed eyewitness testimonies of survivors, and artifacts offer visitors a well-rounded understanding of this horrific part of world history. Visitors leave the Museum with answers to the question, how could this happen?

Due to the somber topic and graphic historical photographs in the exhibits, the Museum is not recommended for children under the age of 10.

However, parents should note that this Museum hosts more than 30,000 school children each year. The audio guided tour teaches the differences between bystander and Upstander behavior and the value of choices.

I was very impressed with this surprise of a museum. Certainly it's not on scale with the one in D.C., but still quite informative. I was glad to see several school tours there with guides. The displays and videos were quite informative.

Much smaller than the Holocaust Museum in DC, but just as impressive, with actual items from Holocaust victims, as well as still life images of the terrible acts done to this victims. Entrance fee is $10 for adults. Worth a look.

Look at the railroad box car that transported Jewish Holocaust victims. Look at the little shoes of children. Look at the eyeglasses of the elderly. When you are done, buy the biography Holocaust Survivor by Mike Jacobs. He volunteered at the museum for many years and was core to the installation of the exhibits.

We are Jewish so feel very personally emotional at such places and were moved in same way as we have at Auschwitz and many similar museums in Israel and continental Europe. The museum is small and concentrates on events of one year mainly ie 1943 but covers key events, causes and results and victims persecutors and politicians and VIPs very... More

Across from the popular Sixth Floor Museum, Dallas Holocaust Museum is a small museum focusing on one day in the Holocaust: April 19th 1943. The museum has two small exhibits: a larger permanent exhibit that focuses on that specific day and a smaller rotating exhibit. You can finish the whole museum within an hour, assuming you can emotionally handle its... More

The me swim stuff is very friendly and knowledgable. The self-guided audio tour gives a lot of flexibility and an opportunity to focus on individual interests. The special exhibits are fascinating and are always very well put together. Whether you live in dfw or you are visiting, you must stop and see/learn for yourself.

A very moving place, rich in historical documents and pictures. I stayed for less than an hour but I could use more time to read all that was exposed.

Excellent museum documenting the Holocaust. Sensitively portrayed. The display discusses the history and includes artifacts from survivors.

My father and I went there on a Saturday. It is smaller than expected, and the layout is not as helpful as it should be. Small, hand-held audio devices are used to listen to descriptions of a lot of images and artifacts. This neat at first, but it got old. I enjoyed the educational aspect, but I didn't learn much...
