A review of a tragic time in world history. Even though we all know what happened, still the pictures of the people involved and the timeline of antisemitism (going back centuries) almost takes your breath away. No longer difficult to get to and more than adequate parking. No fees, only voluntary contributions. I liked the combination of writing, pictures, and... More

they were doing down town construction and roads going that away were blocked off. we parked in parking mall down town and had to walk several blocks to get to it. no one around there seem to even know where it was at. so just know this if you are planning on visiting it.

It's small museum but it's sad to learn about the story. At the end of exhibits and you will see all these people who were and are from El Paso.

This is a great place to visit. The layout is incredible. It starts with a video and then the museum takes you on a timeline of the events of the holocaust. It is haunting and memorable and best of all its free.

It's a relatively small museum. It has a couple of real trinkets but it gives great information. Along the walls there are great visuals and stories.The admission is free and they accept donations.

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.
