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.

Visiting the Holocaust Museums in every city I visit has become a habit. Yet, I can't avoid the tears that come when I view the horror these poor people went through. This museum is excellent, despite the very grim subject matter.

Amazing piece of horrible history that we all need to know about. Went with my good friend and her teenaged twins. It was powerful for us all.

I visited the Dallas Holocaust Museum while down for a business trip, and it was one of the highlights of my time in Dallas. The museum was fairly small, but I felt it was made up for by the quality of the exhibit and the entrance price. Realistically, I'd say one could cover the full museum in about 1-2 hours.... More

Expect to move through this very slowly. Its an audio tour at your own pace. I have a mature 8 year old who loves history but she got bored waiting for me. I could have spent hours in there listening to all the different stories and various narrations that went along with eat item/photo. At the end there's a "movie... More

I have studied some about the Holocaust, but I had never been to a museum about it before. It is a very good museum to tell about those terrible times. They are building a larger museum nearby for future. I recommend this to people who want to learn more about the Holocaust. It is not recommended for young children.

The story is indeed sad, but the learning is even greater. Visiting this place really impacted my life. I learned so much and was able to listen and talk to one of the survivors of the holocaust, that was very impactful to be there with her, listening to how she was able to be saved from being killed by nazis.

It is almost unbelievable that the holocaust ever happened, but it did. We must remember, lest it happen again.

My mother and I went together on a Saturday and it was lovely. Of course, somber but well done. Worth the money and the history lesson.

This was a small but well put together museum. Very powerful stories about local folks who were subjects of the Holocaust. They are making a larger one as there were plenty of visitors. Vistors self guide with hand held microphones. Again well worth the trip.

The overall tone of this museum is respectful and somber, which can really move someone visiting. I found myself crying towards the end of the exhibit, looking at all of the items left behind from victims of the holocaust. There's lots of information to read and it really is a wonderful museum.
