In these troubling times it is of utmost importance to know what horrors were perpetrated during the Holocaust. This is a small museum which presents three major events that occurred on one day, April 19th, 1943. The photographs, exhibits and explanations provided on hand held sets are clear and well done. There are additional explanations for anyone interested in learning... More

Brings home the horrors of the Holocaust with very personal artifacts and the recreation of a cattle railway car used to transport the victims. A presentation by a male concentration camp survivor is compelling and it was impressive to see many children from DISD present and asking questions. The exhibit makes you think.

I took my son here for a visit and although we are not jewish this is still our history! This museum is very somber and poignant. The artifacts are very well done and it is kid friendly on the Anne Frank side which was nice. I am glad we visited!

This is a great museum to see in the DFW area. The museum is not at all that big, but well worth going. Need to do the audio tour, gives you the audio vision/meaning of each attraction. The day we went, there happened to be a Holocaust Survivor guest speaker which was great to have visual, his story of being... More

Really liked the memorial room at the end. This was an extremely somber experience, but very well presented and important to teach future generations about the horrors that are part of our world history. Very important to educate about the atrocities of genocide and remember victims who had no names or identities, anymore.

Small museum, but full of interest. Audio guided tour - you choose what you want to listen to. Bought our tickets on a groupon deal. Parking in a nearby lot - $5 all day. Nice memorial at the end. Small gift shop attached. Bathroom facilities just outside the main museum entrance - ask for door code at the museum. Learnt... More

I was able to go to both the original and this Holocaust Museum. The original was better. The stories and images cannot capture the reality of what actually happened and I don't think my kids got it. Still a worthwhile trip and a well spent afternoon.

I have read enough about the Holocaust so that there we no surprises at the museum. And yet, it broke me. I had to leave because it's such an emotional place. Very hard to think this actually happened. And that's why it is important for everyone to visit. It gives us context, helps us value what we have and how... More

We made the last minute decision to check out the museum and I'm glad we did. While it was small in size, it was loaded with information and we (a family of 4 adults) all loved the way the information is presented. They give you the equivalent of a personal telephone handset and let you choose the information you're interested... More

I was surprised by how small this museum was, but I was easily able to spend over an hour there. They give you small little listening devices, you type in the code on a picture, an item, artifact etc, and put it to your ear. There must have been over a hundred ranging in 30 seconds to several minutes of... More
