Overview
More
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.

Visited with my wife and brother, and found it very interesting for what little they were able to display until they finish their new building. It was very helpful they have an audio tour option for this site.

This is a place to visit with thoughtfulness and honesty. It is not for young children. The staff is excellent. The current space is small and that lends to the experience. The artifacts on display are personal, intense and meaningful.More

Everyone should study history and visit museums lest we forget things that have happened and risk repeating. This is a small museum, but has great artifacts, pictures, and written information about the holocaust.

I don't remember seeing any restrictions on clothing or accessories. My wife was in a wheelchair at the time and I know she was carrying a bag of some sort along with her purse.
