I went with a group to this museum. We first were treated to a talk by a woman who had survived the Nazis in Poland and her road to the U.S. Very informative and interesting. We then had a tour with a docent who was wonderful and full of lots of facts and stories. We had to cut the tour... More

The Holocaust Museum in Houston is a MUST SEE for everyone! Unless we remember the events that shaped the past, we are destined to repeat it! This poignant, hard hitting yet touching museum will open everyones eyes and maybe even change some peoples hearts!

From the moment you walk in until you leave and beyond the sadness that there is so much Unbelievable evil in men. Words cannot describe what you see. Everyone should visit this just for the history to never repeat itself!

Love the Curious George art display about the authors escape from France! Also found it fascinating at the end of the holocaust exhibit when I found that many war criminals were released early and/or were refunded heavy fines. Who knew?

As we read about genocides in Ethiopia and elsewhere, places like the Holocaust Museum have never been more relevant. We did the self-guided tour. The exhibit telling the stories of those brave few who came to the rescue of the victims of the Holocaust was truly inspiring. Both our nineteen year-old and thirteen year-old were moved to tears. This is... More

We caught a tour with an actual survivor and hearing accounts of what she went through was a little overwhelming to be honest. Even still it was a great experience took my 8 year old nephew who wanted to go to a happy place after...be warned.

This is an amazing opportunity to see firsthand the devastation of the holocaust and to educate our children. The museum is tastefully done and warns parents of the graphic images - they even have a "Curious George" exhibit as he is a holocaust survivor as well. While the museum contains disturbing images, relics and historical artifacts, it is also a... More

What to say about such tragedy that was the Holocaust? It is an intense experience to get to see all those pictures, objects, videos, etc - but necessary as it is a big smack on everyone's face and it should never be forgotten.
