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.

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

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is a must see for anyone. It is very emotional to see and hear the stories of the Holocaust victims and survivors.

Every visit is sobering. The exhibits are well done, thought provoking. We have often been there when a survivor is telling his/her story. So hard to imagine living through that. The survivors are getting elderly--go now while you can hear first hand. Parking is high, so recommend taking DART. Plenty of nearby restaurants.

Excellent museum, but $9 FOR PARKING!? When admissions is only 8 to 10? That's outrageous! The parking fee is almost as much as the admissions for an adult. Affordable museum if you skip the parking.

After JFK we decided to visit this, for 8$ each was not worth it Nothing unique, only 10 or so exhibits and lays on propaganda thickly The history sure was horrific and unforgivable but such museums should be only fact based not opinionated Much better elsewhere

Amazing, thought provoking and moving. Go. Get tickets early online, otherwise you don't get to see the main exhibit. If you need help getting tickets last min, try reaching out to your congressman. We did that and we got free tickets.
