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.

Hard to deny anything once you've walked through here. Expect to learn and see many shocking things. A "must-visit" for every human alive at least once. 5 stars.

We had a good visit at the museum. Although it os very small. They hope to move to bigger facilities in a couple of years. There was a lot of people there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was self guided. You had a handset and dialed the number you wanted to hear about that were located on... More

This is right near the Kennedy landmark! Very interesting. Self Guided tour with audio and headset. However, you will still get alot out of it by just walking, viewing and reading.

Wasn't expecting to see a holocaust museum in the US, let alone in Dallas. Good insight on how holocaust victims migrated to the US and re-built their lives. Museum is small and personalized own-pace audio is provided. Good location as the Sixth Floor Museum on JFK is just next building. Good opportunity for a historical and cultural tour in downtown...

Pretty good museum! Fairly small! Nothing compared to the Holocaust Museum in DC. However, great video at the end. Also appreciated how they tied in the local survivors!

I would definitely recommend visiting the museum. They provide you with an audio guide that gives the story and details to accompany what is visible in the exhibit. It is small and quiet is expected out of respect. Some people brought their small children who inevitably cried and disturbed everyone trying to walk through and listen to the audio. Moreover,...

We took a large group of high school students here. They received a discount. It is nice when museums welcome young people and don't treat them like they might hurt something. This museum is well done and packs a definite punch. To really get the full effect, you should spend at least two hours here. The video at the end... More

A very emotional and educational spot to visit. Surprising place to find in Texas with such a redneck reputation. Donald Trump and all his supporters should visit to understand the insidious nature of marginalizing people and mans' inhumanity to man. It does an excellent job in showing the horrors of genocide not only from a perspective of the Holocaust but... More

One block from the Book Depository museum is the Holocaust Museum (park at the former to visit the latter). Not as dramatic as some, but excellent presentations help describe the horrors of the event. Video interviews of former camp survivors are presented as a continuous loop in the small theater, and make the event come to life. This museum is... More

The self guided tour was very interesting and educational. It was sad to learn how many men, women and children lost their lives from dictatorship!

Thank you for your review. Yes, it was a sad and horrific saga in world history. The Holocaust is the largest genocide based on the numbers of people who were murdered because of their religion. More
