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

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.
