As time goes by and memories fade this is a must, in my opinion, for all high school students to visit and see the horrors that man can inflict upon his fellow man.

This is one of Houston's finest experiences. Trained docents are excellent. The history provided is unique to Houston, as many Holocaust Survivors settled here.

Well, treasure has to be understood in its real meaning of something of great value and clarity... this is a very serious place telling an awful story but it is a spiritual center of sorts. Must see

We enjoyed the experience (if one can say that about a holocaust museum). It's currently in a temporary location so we're waiting for the completion of the remodel to go again. So check to see if that's been completed.

I guess there’s a temporary location while they build a new one. The temporary one is worth avoiding until they finish their permanent space. Some interesting stories, but nearly zero artifacts. For $12, it felt too pricey. We spent about 30-40 minutes here before finishing...More

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
