having both of my parents as survivors of the Holocaust the museum is a place of reflection - i'll never know what it was truly like for them to be in Auschwitz but coming here allows me a chance to try to better understand the horrors they suffered at the hands of the Nazi's

Such a somber time in the world but the museum presents the history in such a dignified and personal way. Very worth it.

Great time with my girlfriend who is into history. Everyone who cares about history must check this place out at least once in their lives. Nothing bad to say at all. Can get busy at times and staff does great providing information.

We went expecting an emotional trip and it definitely didn't lack that. The guided tour offered a lot of information that I did not know. The museum has artifacts as well as photos. It is very well put together and and worth the trip. Just make sure to bring tissues.

It wasn't a bad experience...We just expected a bit more for the admission price. Mostly photos, and a few items for viewing. We really liked the survivor interviews...it was nice to have an area to sit down, since it was a lengthy video.

Get there early. I arrived at 2 and was rushed thru. Security guard was rude and pushed ppl out before closing. She only cared about going home. The multiple exhibits shows the history via photos, letters, written records, movies etc of holocaust including bonefish victims. Very moving. Unique gift shop.

This museum will take an hour of your time to visit if you take a guided tour. it's well worth having the guide take you through the museum. Details of the Holocaust are well explained without sensationalizing them. the facts alone are powerful enough.

There is no way to imagine the horror of the Holocaust. The museum gives you a glimpse of what it must have been like. When you see the list of survivors near the end remember, some of those people are our fellow Houstonians. This is a very candid look at one of the biggest tragedies of our time.
