Owner description: 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.

“So sad”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Definitely call ahead! We went and there happened to be a school field trip there so we didn't get to use the headphones. They gave us a script and we read on our own. Even still I found it moving and educational. They actully had a train car there and it just made the experience that much more emotional.

“A decent museum.”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

My 12 year old brother is crazy about WWII so I took him to this museum. It was very small. We got through in less than 40 minutes and the staff was not the freindliest. My brother liked it though. I have been to much better though.

“Small but very educational”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

Admission price was fair for the museum. It was small but very informative. It had real life artifacts like passports, jewelry, clothing, actual boxcar, etc. It had a whole room for the history of Ann Frank. Audio and video available. It was very interesting and I would go again.

Ive been to several Holocaust Museums in the US and abroad. This museum ranks with the best of them. Exhibits accurately portray the horrors of the holocaust in a educational fashion.
