Overview

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.

This is truly a "hidden Gem" in Dallas. Right next door to the Kennedy Museum, most people have no idea it is there. The Docents, give a wonderful understanding of this meaningful exhibit

If we're not careful... this can definitely happen here in the US. When you first walk in you receive these things that look like remote controls. You basically push the keypad and it'll start talking. It does take quite a while to get through everything...More

It was very interesting to see how many Holocaust survivors were settled in Dallas. The highlight was the actual boxcar used for transportation to the camps.
