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.

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.

Its a well put together timeline of the events that happened. If you follow the time line and listen to the audio you will gain first hand knowledge of the events that took place. At the end sit in the room and watch the videos of all the survivors story's. I would go again

Even though the museum is very small has tons of facts, pictures and artifacts from the Holocaust. It can been seen in 2 hours tops. Very well presented and with the entrance you get and audio guide ( Spanish also available). The staff is very friendly and helpful.

This tour is self paced and must use an audio device. I have visited the Holocaust museum in DC and completely understand not all will be as good as theirs pertaining to exhibits, personal items, or larger items but this really fell short. Boards of pictures and personal items that had a number on every single item which meant I... More

In comparison to the Holocaust museum in Washington DC, this museum was far smaller but far better. Each person will receive a "phone" type device that allows you to input the specific number of the specific exhibit that you wish to hear more information about. While it is a small museum, it is loaded with information and you can take... More

Compared to Yad Vashem this is a very small place with a limited Exhibit but they do well with the space they have

Parking was $7 and was pretty close to this location. Admission was reasonable. when we arrived, there wasn't many folks on location. To hear all the information, one uses a "phone" and listen. It was small but loaded with information. This was far better than the Holocaust Museum in DC.....not even close. Very through and easy to follow. No additional... More

This is a must go to. It was a great deal of emotions, felt major tugs on the heart strings. Very humbling, hard to understand how people can do such to others. Makesure you have tissues. I don't feel it's something for young, teens maybe depending.
