We had one afternoon in El Paso and decided we had enough time to check this museum out. Had a little trouble finding it, gps was off a bit and road construction concealed the entrance, but once in we were glad we went. Gave a really good insight into the history leading up to the war and then to the... More

Very well put together. Surprisingly number of imigrants from the concentration camps ended up settling and staying in El Paso, TX. I personally thought this museum was nicer than the one in Washington, D.C.

We have visited many Holocaust museums, and we were very impressed with El Paso's. Within 2 hours, a visitor receives an excellent account of the Holocaust and its place in history. The museum was very well organized, had easy-to-follow time lines and written material, and a good number of artifacts. The videos were well done and meaningful.

This is one of the best museums explaining the Holocaust in the U.S. It was obvious the time and dedication put into the facility by the museum operators and the exactness to detail that brings a part of history into our modern world. The tour is very in-depth, the artifacts are fascinating, and the final room always manages to make... More

This museum is quite small, but full of information. There is a lot to read, but if you'd rather watch videos, they have different ones running in each new area. From real war and Nazi memorabilia to boxcars, barbed wire, and brick ovens, this museum has a little of everything. There is no entrance fee, but donations are appreciated.

I had the opportunity to visit The El Paso Holocaust Museum while visiting El Paso this week and was just amazed at the quality of this excellent museum. The artifacts and history in this gem is just amazing. From the artifacts from the Third Reich to specific details on the horrific death camps, it is truly a heart felt lesson... More

I've been to the Holocaust Museum in DC and I must say that, on a much smaller scale, this museum is very impressive. Go with enough time so that you can read the material and closely observe the displays. Talk with one of docents, for they are very knowledgeable and very friendly. Bring tissues, because this place will impact you.

A medium sized museum that covers the Holocaust well with photos, artifacts and video. You can easily walk though in 30-45 min and come out with a good understanding of the tragedy
