The lady that gave us a tour was extremely knowledgeable and told us that there are survivors living in Houston that have come into give guided tours. I just think that... More

We actually visited the museum some time back and I'm just reviewing now. This is a great place to look at what really happened to the unfortunate Jews in Germany. We've been to the Holocaust Museum in NYC which is much larger, but we still were impressed with the information available here. I would recommend it to anyone interested in... More

Because of the nature of this museum, it was one that I put off visiting for quite a while. When at last I did visit, I was glad I did. In addition to the expected, historical Jewish Holocaust exhibits, they include temporary exhibits on other Genocides around the world such as Darfur. I like this museum’s dedication not only to...

I saw a photo exhibit here. It's actually dedicated to all instances of human atrocities, not just the Jewish holocaust.

I visited the Holocaust Museum during a field trip. It is so well done. I brought students and son by bus. The docent was so accommodating. The subject is horrifying, but the museum has presented it in a factual manner. It presents history in a step by step, so to help us understand it how the Nazi party became so... More

It told the Holocaust story well, but could have had more seating to take in the information. Would have liked more history and artifacts of the Jewish culture and migration.

I took my kids over the weekend to this Houston treasure. We went over the items on display with great care and looked at all the exhibits. The Wall of Tears is a beautiful piece. All in all its a great educational treasure for middle school kids who have questions about our history.

My wife and I have now visited four different holocaust museums. Each is a bit different, but each time we have left with a great feeling of sadness and we always say "How did we let this happen?". The Houston museum is small but very informative. The interviews with local individuals who experienced the holocaust were truly moving. We always... More

This is a (relatively) small Museum, but it's informative and has some very powerful exhibits. I have read much about the Holocaust, growing up Jewish, and having an avid interest in history; but this museum still was very informative and educational. The exhibits were both powerful and moving; some of the pictures will definetely not be appropriate for younger children-... More
