This museum is small but very informative. Self guided audio tour gives you plenty information about each part of the museum. We went on Saturday afternoon and it can get little crowded but still we had a good visit and kids learned a lot there.

We went to the Dallas Holocaust Museum the first day it opened after being remodeled. It is interactive, showing the progression of the Holocaust as you walk through. Even though the events were horrific, and much of the material graphic, it also shows how people rose above their circumstances and became heroes. It is recommended for 12 years and older,... More

Its a small museum filled with stories and memorabilia preserved behind the glass. They provide you a personal speaker where you can listen to the brief context behind the picture. Had a chance to see a brave holocaust survivor. You can finish the tour in one and half hour. Must visit once at least.

I took my son the museum when they had a traveling Anne Frank exhibit (he was studying the Holocaust in school and I wanted him to see 'first hand' some of the atrocities committed). I've been to the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam and the exhibit here was just as informative and bone chilling. The staff was very well versed... More

This is a very moving museum to see and experience. i went with 2 girl friends and glad that I did. The cost is modest, $8.00 for a senior, and you are provided a audio tour at no cost....which is very nice. The pictures and the exhibits have numbers and you just index the number in your device and listen... More

We went to this museum and it was a very touching experience, the children learned about the madness of the nazi people in WWII against the jewish people. It's small but it's worth seening it. It was very crouded so it means many people want's to learn abot tolerance and prevent this kind of acts in the future.

I moved from the Philadelphia area, which is very Jewish. I interned at NMAJH and am very involved in the Jewish culture and religion. I was very excited that there was a museum associated with my people in the DFW area because the population isn't very large. My partner and I arrived very excited about the museum. When we entered... More

This small museum is packed full of information. The self-guided audio tour has the flexibility to take you deep into the time period. At times, it is heavily revealing. Thankfully, you have the option to choose between an overview or hear about intensely true facts and hardships people faced and overcame. The free exhibit at the end nearly moved me... More

Went with my boys they were inquiring about the Holocaust they are 7 and 6. When we got there we thought it was tiny and immediately thought oh my my boys are not going to like this but they enjoyed learning at their own pace with the headset. We were there for a couple hours. We were fortunate enough to... More
