“A Must when in Houston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This museum is excellent. We went through it with a guide and the stories she told were moving, educational and poignant. The exhibits are well done. This is a museum that you do not want to be in a hurry to get through. Take your time to let it all soak in. I learned things I did not know which was great.

Very informational. Small, but the layout and the information that is given will have you memorized for an hour or two. Tons of things to read and learn!

“Superb museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I came here after experiencing the tour-de-force that is the DC Holocaust museum but you know what, this museum is nonetheless a superb exploration of the holocaust conducted with sensitivity and class. Interesting displays with information i hadn't already read made it a moving and worthy addition to my time in Houston

“Very moving exhibit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Although this museum is about a very sad & tragic part of history, it is well worth visiting. Our whole family, which included a 9 & 11 year old, were totally captivated the whole afternoon we spent there. If you can, go on a Saturday or Sunday as they offer a guided tour. It is well worth every minute.

“Very sad but moving, an important remembrance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

This museum is a bit of a hidden gem in Houston, from my perspective; I feel like many of the people I have met are largely unaware of its existence. I went with my father sometime ago, and we greatly enjoyed slowly ambling through this sobering place. You will feel very sad, but that is part of the point--to remember how horrifying humans can be to other humans so that, hopefully, we will never let anything of this kind happen again. I thought the exhibits were well-organized, respectfully presented, and educational. I remember lingering in front of some photos aghast, just trying to comprehend why something like the Holocaust would ever happen. Going to this museum should not only improve or supplement your understanding of this important historical and human event; it should also remind you how grateful you should be for your own life as it is today.
