The Houston Holocaust Museum is a beautiful, artful tribute to this significant part of our world history. This new Houston facility is spacious and very artfully designed--connecting guests, clearly and more intimately to the history, to the people lost. We were afriad it would be terribly sad and depressing, and somehow it wasn't. It was impactful, respectful, and, frankly inspiring--proof of such strength and depth of character of those persecuted. My family and I were able to hear one of the Holocaust Survivors speak in the auditorium--wow, just wow. Please visit this place, see and learn about the history, and remember.

This is a piece of history that everyone needs to see. It’s definitely sad to go thru but it’s an important piece of history.

Great for kids who are interested to know more about it. I, too, learned a lot from this place. I just wish they have more up to all floors.

The museum has its own parking lot. If you only visit for 1/2 hour or less it is free. Over the half hour and up to 4 hours costs $8. It goes up from there. Four hours should be plenty of time to visit the museum. After you pay your admission, the short orientation film is recommended. It recycles every 20 minutes and there is a countdown clock outside the theater. The museum has guided tours and audio tours available. It is a detailed history of the Nazi holocaust in Europe, There are several recorded interviews of local residents who were survivors of the holocaust. It is something that everyone should be reminded of, lest we allow it to happen again. There is a gift shop.

Just walking into the museum and passing by the reconstruction of one of the chimneys from the ovens where so many people's bodies were put to death, put me in a somber mood. To see the mementos and read the stories of the people that lived (and died) through this dark part of history, is to grasp in a small way the pain and suffering they went through. When I read or hear about someone saying that the Holocaust did not happen, I weep, for I have been to this museum and believe what I saw.
