Very educational. I've been to other holocaust museums and they have more going on. Like showing you how they lived while in hiding. Rooms like the gas chamber.They more interactive features then this museum.

The museum was nicely set up but expensive to be a museum "culture" which should be at everybody's reach. Still worth while going to visit if you're into History and WWII.

An informative and at the same time sobering look at the Holocaust, well worth the visit to this compact but well laid out exhibit.

As you drive up to the museum you see the recreated smoke stacks and wire fence to remind us of what a concentration camp looked liked.

I think that place was the best place in Houston I've ever seen, it has a lot of original stuff and also that place showed to me why we have to destroy the nationalism.

The museum may not be great for the really young. But for 12+ and adults it presents the facts in a well organized manner with items from that time and place. Don't be in a rush and read everything.

I have been living in Houston for 20 years and I just now made it, I'm slightly disappointed it took me this long. The museum is small, but packed with information. We took the tour given every hour or so, our docent was amazing, he...More

We were especially moved by the butterfly exhibit, where a butterfly was made in memory of a child that perished in the Holocaust. Too many children perished.

I realize that this is much smaller but how does it compare to the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.?

DC is what I would rate phenomenal...no comparison. BUT that doesn't mean Houston isn't any good. Its much smaller, yes, but its educational, lots of videos running different clips with actual footage, artifacts throughout. More
