It took me 30 minutes to go through it. Place is very small maybe 2500 sq ft. Place was not exciting at all. You pay for parking as well. Would not recommend. Sorry.

The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because I've seen to DC holocaust museum and it was much better with a lot more stuff. This one was like a mini version. However it did tug at the heart strings and make you understand what they went through. Good place to go if you're in Dallas.

I had never visited a Holocaust Museum before and found this a very humbling and moving experience. I had planned for a 1hour visit but spent well over 2 hours in here

I've visited ten Holocaust Museums. Although they vary in size, the focus (and general layout) are relatively the same. While this museum's primary focus is ensuring that the future does not forget its past, I was struck by how it illustrated how "race/ethnicity" has led to "systematic" discrimination in contemporary history: the removal of the Cherokee, the internment of Japanese...

This is a small "museum" but very well presented. The audio tour is a huge plus with lots of information about specific people/families. Several items in the museum make it more personal and real. The memorial room is very touching. It is such a humbling experience to hear stories of the atrocities that were inflicted on other humans.

My daughter & I were quite disappointed. We live 30 minutes away but with Dallas traffic, it took over an hour. On top of the admission price, we had parking to pay also in Dallas. We were so disappointed and really only spent about 45 minutes there instead of our two hour planned visit. It is a nice exhibit but... More

The place was smaller than I expected. They have a handful of artifacts and good information. I was expecting more. The pillars that represent the number of deaths each year helps put it into perspective. I liked the pillars the most. It left much to be desired but a must stop for visitors.

For such a horrific subject matter, it was tastefully presented. My son and I explored, held hands, and later discussed the philosphical questions of the depths and depravity of man. The audio tour was helpful, but not necessary. The theatre also gave more for the visitor to contemplate. It would be nice to have an expanded, more than a 3-events... More

Mostly picture and you can listen to individual stories as well as overal history with individual listening device.there are several actual pieces of property from the people in the... More

Although the museum is small it did leave us with much to consider and talk about over dinner. I was not a fan of the audio tour but it does allow everyone to move at their own pace. The survivors's videos were very powerful.
