Apparently many survivors of the Holocaust settled in Houston. This museum is dedicated to those survivors. One of the best Holocaust museums around. The museum was very crowded (day after Thanksgiving) and from many cultures ad not just Jews. Extensively covered the Holocaust and Nurenburg laws which prented Jews and other underiables to simply go to a park or a... More

Came across this museum while touring the museum district and find many sad stories but also hope for the future. Lots to reflect on especially in the worlds current climate.

It is not a very big museum, but it covers everything. They have very interesting temporary exhibits. It has a peaceful outdoor garden, for reflecting, with a train car and a Danish fishing boat, which saved many Jewish lives. When you first enter the staff is very welcoming and explain everything. The movie presented is a must see. The day... More

This is a nice museum with a very helpful staff. I feel often overlooked but should be on everyone's list.

I feel weird giving a holocaust museum a 5* review, but as far as a museum to help people understand what the holocaust was and how it really changed the world, this museum does a great job at a tough issue. They tie in the holocaust to Texas and it was interesting to see a letter written by future president... More

Though I have read extensively concerning the holocaust, this museum is exemplary in bringing together so much information in one place. Bits of history I had never heard before explained many things I had wondered about.

We went on a Thursday afternoon when it was free. It takes about 2 hours to get through if you do the audio tour and then stay and watch the movie at the end. Just make sure you have your cell phone charged enough to last the whole audio tour, and bring some headphones. Smaller than some other holocaust museums,... More

My husband and I went on a Thursday afternoon, between the hours of 2:00 - 5:00 admittance is free. The place is small and of course sad, but very informative. I believe everyone needs to go at least once, to put things in prespective - realize how great/good things are now.

We had a guided tour through the museum, which I strongly recommend. It appears to be small but is one of the best museums for content we've been to.

My daughter and I visited the museum due to her introduction to the holocaust at school. I recommend their guided tours, as their tour guides are a fountain of information. If you are the type of person to read every label and description, do plan to be there for a couple of hours. The personal testimonies from survivors who settled... More
