Museum is really small but is very informative and powerful. The audio guides guides you through the exhibits. Easy to use and full of information. The memorial Room at the end is beautifully done. They are building a bigger museum next door. Highly recommend.

This Holocaust Museum is relatively small, but, like all the rest, it provides a powerful message. Two interesting notes - there is an attempt to relate some of the exhibits to people and events in Dallas, and there is a significant non-Jewish group of visitors...More
