We attended the opening of the Ground Zero 360 exhibit which features photos of 9/11 rescue workers, a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, artifacts from the site, and the uniforms of deceased first responders. Very moving exhibit.

This is a great tour to expand your knowledge about that dark piece of the world's history. My advice is to take the guided tour, then go through the museum again, "on your own" this time. Knowledgeable and friendly tour guide - family member of a holocaust survivor. Affordable admission fee, especially for students. Photography not allowed inside, only outside.... More

Amazing exhibit that I think everyone should see if you get the opportunity. So well done, amazing that they even had a train car that they used to ship people to the camps and a boat that that the Danes used to help the Jewish Danes escape. Highly recommend!

Holocaust might be one of the worst things the mankind has done. Lots of tears and blood. The museum's displays are comprehensive. Dun let this kind of thing happen again

Great place to visit. It tells the horror of this time but in a way that is not too much to handle. I think everyone should know what a horrible time this was in the world.

A small and intimate museum. I do not think that small children (under the age of 10-12) should visit this museum. It's intense. Their displays bring WWII to life for young and old. It's almost an intimate experience. I have been there several times since they opened and they are constantly changing the display. Their focus is on education of... More

great information about the Jewish community. Maybe if you visited you are depressed. BUT look at the bright side - this is history and hopefully will stay this way.

If you want to do the usual tourist stuff; shopping and eating then do not waste your time on this remarkable and touching museum, but if you want to learn and experience simple of the tragic events that took place in WWII then go to the museum. I have visited Auschwitz and numerous other camps so this was a treat... More

My mom and I toured the museum when she was in town. Everyone knows that it's a sad thing to face but this really brings it right to you. It has survivors who now live Houston that narrate the audio tour. Audio tours aren't always worth it but for this museum I think it's more than worth the cost of... More
