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.

This museum depicts the horrors and suffering endured by a group of the human race during World War II, the Jewish people. It is a story told in with vivid, horrifying details. Visit this museum and be ready to grapple with history in a new, sobering perspective. You will see artifacts such as an actual railway car used to transport... More

This is a very thought provoking museum that uses one day to point out what was happening in history while the Nazis were killing Jewish people and the world considered what or what not to do. I appreciate their view and enjoyed walking through this perspective.

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.
