ME and my husband enjoyed the museum however, we got there about and hour before they closed. I would suggest more time as there is a lot of reading that is very interesting. The museum is by donation only. I would like to suggest that the museum is probably for ages 10 years old and up a small child would... More

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 went here with my boyfriend while we visited el paso we thought lets take advantage of something free to do. The museum is very nice lots of fun facts and little pieces of history. However the exhibit was very short and there was more reading than actual artifacts we enjoyed it because were adults in our late twenties but... More
