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.

It gives you a whole new understanding of what the Jews went through and how they persevered through it all and the personal interview theater was very provocative and profound. There are several survivors living in or near Dallas who make appearances throughout the year.

As someone who is highly interested in the time period, I had high expectations for the museum. Especially since we had to pay to get in. It was not worth it at all. The exhibit was so small. And really hard to navigate. The handheld...More

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.
