Very somber tribute to a tumultuous period in history. They have a range of artifacts, which have been presented in the least possible graphic way when you consider that the subject they deal with is highly violent and graphic. It is a very humbling experience to go through this museum, to say the least and you come out of it... More

This is a well-thought-out and well-run museum. They take care not to traumatize children with explicit photos. It is small enough that you can go through it in a couple of hours, but still very comprehensive and detailed.

We arrived at3:35 pm and were met with a darkened exhibit. The executive director kindly turned on the lights and we went through the museum in 30 minutes. It clearly and effectively gives a factual narrative of the events leading up to, the exterminations themselves and the after effects. Make a donation in your way out. Well done.

Even though this is a small museum, it actually transmit the suffering of many jews in the war. It is well kept and they only ask for donations. It is a MUST for many El Paso citizens and visitors.

It is so moving and will create lots of emotions in you as you travel though the journey that so many suffered. I am thankful for people who keep this place going. We... More

I have been here twice. What an eye opening experience. You can really see what went on in Nazi Germany with the Jewish people. Many, many artifacts and exhibits. Fun, yet interesting and awesome.

Its a beautiful museum and very personal to the staff and members. A must visit. Beware that your kids will have questions but luckily the visit starts with a informational video. A must visit.

Visiting family in the area and decided visit a few of the area's museums while everyone was at work. One of the choices was the Holocaust Museum and I'm very glad we made it there! Not an overly large or elaborate, this museum presented the history in a very powerful and moving way! If you have only a short time... More
