The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance offers a core exhibit that exposes three key events that occurred on "One Day During the Holocaust". A special travelling exhibit, video graphed eyewitness testimonies of survivors, and artifacts offer visitors a well-rounded understanding of this horrific part of world history. Visitors leave the Museum with answers to the question, how could this happen?

Due to the somber topic and graphic historical photographs in the exhibits, the Museum is not recommended for children under the age of 10.

However, parents should note that this Museum hosts more than 30,000 school children each year. The audio guided tour teaches the differences between bystander and Upstander behavior and the value of choices.

I'm so glad we visited this museum. My oldest son went with his school on a field trip, and after he came home and told me about it, I wanted to see it for myself. Very powerful images, stories, and historical documents line the walls in this museum. It makes something that we have only ready about very real. A... More

I loved this museum because of how well it is designed and displayed. The architecture, layout and lighting just enhance the feelings and emotions of what it was like to have lived during this very tragic time. But, it also leaves you with stories of herioism, hope and healing.

I visited the museum this past weekend and to be honest wasn't expecting much from it, but happily I was wrong. I've visited several holocaust museums across the country, I learned many things during this visit that I hadn't known. It was also surprising to find out there was a large number of survivors who emigrated to Dallas and the... More

The smallest halocaust exposition that I have ever attended. No guide is needed as per you get a phone like device that will describe to your ear the pick description you are looking at. It may show you a thing or 2 different from other holocaust expos. At the end it achives its purpose.

This museum brought to life the time period of World War II and the Holocaust. It was phenomenally well done and worth visiting. On top of it, the current Bosnian War exhibit was great.

Answer: Unknown, since recorded atrocities date back thousands of years. Nevertheless, the dark side of humanity needs to be held up and seen for what it is: evil. We need to be reminded of the past and stay vigilant in the present and future. This is not a feel good museum (how could it be?); it is sad, emotional, and... More

Don't let the title scare you off. The staff was friendly and the museum was interesting and informative. The entire exhibit was contained in three rooms, The audio tour was informative, but the entire exhibit is focused on one day in April, 1943. I have visited several concentration camps while in Europe. Perhaps I expected too much... It was certainly... More

The Dallas Holocaust Museum can be viewed at your own pace. With interactive phones you punch in a number to learn about each area. It is laid out very well. The information was very good(some things I had not heard before. Many museum artifacts come from families who settled in or near Dallas. The theater includes interviews that touch your... More
