The survivor speech makes the experience

I recently visited the museum with a continuing education class for work. The whole place is quite small, and there is not a whole lot to see. The tour guide was great, though... read more

Right in downtown Dallas near Dealey Plaza. Small, but packed with memorabilia. Self guided tour with listening device. Up close and personal... Get Groupon for nice discount. Just opened - 9/11 exhibit. Small, but has several interesting artifacts. No additional charge during our visit - not sure if still included in Holocaust Museum cost.

This museum was very well laid out it was very educational and thought provoking yet disturbing at the same time. We actually got to listen to a real holocaust survivor.

I recently visited the museum with a continuing education class for work. The whole place is quite small, and there is not a whole lot to see. The tour guide was great, though. She had a ton of insight, and would not allow the mood of the group to become too somber. What really made it great, though, was the... More

The best part are the Video Interviews of actual Nazi Death Camp survivors!! Many of these survivors have now passed away. So hopefully these Videos will be well preserved. I realize it is in a small space, but it would be nice if they could spread out the Photos and Exhibits. The Verbal Guided Tour is very informative. Everybody needs... More

Some interesting information on the Holocaust,, be wary of school groups who can be a little disrespectful of the surroundings and may not realise the importance of the story. The guided your starts on the right hand wall from the entry , ie: what appears to be the exit,, not the timeline opposite the counter.

Thank you for your review. Your point about the school children is well taken. So much depends on the teachers and the level to which she/he has presented the topic prior to their visit. More

I would highly recommend a trip to the Holocaust Museum, whether you are visiting from out of town or live in the area. Handheld speakers are included in the price to guide you through the exhibit. A very important part of history that must never be forgotten.

I took my kids here for a history lesson and was not disappointed. We happened to go on a day when there was a holocaust survivor visiting. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience.

I love history museums and was excited to finally go to this one but unfortunately was very disappointed. The whole museum took maybe 30 minutes max to walk through, read and look at everything. The entire staff was sitting at the front desk the whole time instead of being spread throughout offering to answer any questions or offering to teach... More

I'm sorry that our Museum did not satisfy you. We are housed in temporary space while we wait for our new building to be built. You'll find the new museum with a wider range of information more to your liking. More

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.
