Amazing compilation of resources, and historic items. The way they communicated the history behind it all was well thought out for sure.

You get a real history of the Holocaust rarely found in a museum of this size. Also if you a interested in resource material it has a full library of Holocaust books both stories and ref guides. It is open to the public at no charge. Donations are accepted.

Modern facility, well organized exhibit. Nice museum store. Great selection of historic pieces of information, including a railroad car, showing the feel and handling of the original equipment pieces.

Found this museum while walking downtown. An amazing tribute developed by a Holocaust survivor who now lives in El Paso. Well done and although difficult to go through, it is important.

I never actually made it to the museum. I plugged in the museum by name in my GPS, no luck finding it. Then plugged it in by address, took me somewhere else, but still not to the museum. Waste of time. My family was so tired of driving in circles looking for it, we moved on.

The founders of this museum put a lot into this museum. It is a must see and compares favorably with the larger Holocaust Museums around the world. Somber but very educational!

I've always been interested in the history of the Holocaust and know a lot about it but I still learned a lot when I went there. It's small so it doesn't take a lot of time to go through but still very informative. They even have books designed to explain the Holocaust to young children without going into details beyond...

This museum display one of the most horrifying tragedies of the 20th century. Graphic pictures of dead people are included on one of the screens. Full of information and pictures of some heroes of the holocaust you will see. Good location. Free entrance.

I took about 90 minutes to go through... More
