We arrived there an hour before it closed, so we did not have much time to read everything. But turned out we finished walking around all the exhibits. When you have a visit in Houston, getting into a serious topic like Holocaust is a very different experience. My younger boy tired not to see or hear too much as it... More

This museum is appropriate for teenager +. Due to the chains and live size figures in cages I would not take small children. It really opens your eyes and hearts to those who endured slavery. And realize we have come along way.

We spent a Saturday afternoon at this museum and went through only a portion of the displays. I knew much of the history, but this was more. This was personal experience brought from many people. I had taken for granted that my children woukd have been somewhat exposed to this part of history in school....so this was a definite education... More

No charge admission, but donations can be given at the end of the tour. This museum really explains and demonstrates the pure agony and torture that DID happen to the Jewish people! Good time to talk with your children while walking through the exhibit to explain the need for understanding and kindness needed to survive even today's tough world.

I have visited three times and each time I come away with a heavy heart for what mankind has done to themselves. It is very informative and has many actual items from the Holocaust. For those interested in history it is a must see.

Lots of pictures & videos Very informative and moving. This plays on many emotions and you walk out somewhat numb. The final phase is the liberation and it leaves you feeling a bit better that some were rescued from the hell they were put through.

I have always wanted to go to this museum and I'm so glad I did! It was very informative and heart wrenching. You don't have to pay but you can give a donation and we did because that is what helps it stay open and everyone must go see this you won't be disappointed if you love history!

The story of the Holocaust is described in these walls. From the pictures, the tour, and the actual movies of survivors, you will be amazed. It is an important part of history that an atrocity like this does not happen again. Also, visit an actual rail car that people were transported in to the gas chambers. And there is the... More

I wouldn't say a museum predicated on genocide is a "Must See" for anyone, or even a top pick for "Things I want to do on vacation." Nonetheless, this museum is extremely moving and offers an incredible collection depicting a stain on the history of humankind.
