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.

Loved the film in the beginning of the self guided tour. My kids were in awe of this part of history. Its nice to bring this kind of awareness to the community so this will never happen again.

We are in El Paso to visit our son who is stationed at Fort Bliss. We also have an 8 year old daughter. Admission is free with a $5 suggested donation. We happened to arrive when they were having a reception for the founder, who sadly had passed away on July 3rd. This was to celebrate his arrival in El... More

The Museum is very well put together. Information is connected to many El Pasoans in the area and is easy to follow. In all it took us around an hour from beginning to end. It really makes you feel connected to the victims and heroes. Telling there stories along the way. Must see.

This museum has been created by the remarkable people (and their families) who immigrated from Jewish enclaves in Europe at the end of WWII. It is well researched and the presentations are fascinating and moving. (Even the men in our group teared up at some of the displays). The scope of the exhibits is substantial with great historical details about... More

I wouldn't recommend this for young children as it's a somber quiet place. However for a teenager it would be appropriate. Make sure you catch the video in the viewing room before starting the tour, it really helps set the tone and gives you some background. Once you start the tour you'll encounter nazi uniforms, hats and various other things.... More

We have visited several museums dedicated to the Holocaust, and this one is excellent for its size. The displays are interspersed with brief informational films that flesh out the details of certain events and time periods. Free parking and admission (with a recommended donation of $5). This was time well-spent for us, and we recommend it to others.
