I'm a museum geek. That is the first thing I look for when I visit a city. I have never experienced what I did when I walked through this museum. I studied about WW2 in History but I didn't realize what happened until I saw the faces of the people who lived it. There are headphones you use to hear... More

The main exhibit was all in one large room. There was a lot to read but it was very informative. I was a bit disappointed that there were very few artifacts. The exhibit was mostly pictures and a 30 minute video. I liked how they tied in the personal stories from survivors now living in Houston. I went with two... More

Loved the many forms of presentation, especially with film of survivors living in Houston. Librarian was very helpful to share my particular interest in the Armenian Genocide of 1915.

This was my first visit and I thought the museum was excellent and quite moving. I think I read every placard and tried to absorb as much as possible. The film at the end was very moving as well. I was there about 3 1/2 hours and would recommend this museum to everyone but I probably would not bring small... More

When I think I've learned everything about this tragic episode of history, I know I can head to Houston's Holocaust museum to find a new nugget, and be moved again.
