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.

Went with 2 kids who were engaged and interested till the end. Wishing the space was bigger because as it began to get crowded moving around inside became cumbersome. But they do say they are planning to expand. I would recommend anyone to add this to their ToDo list of Dallas attractions.

This is a great place to take children to learn about the Holocaust and everything that happened to the Jewish people during WWII. Price was very reasonable

This exhibit is very informative and a sobering reminder of World War II. Lots of photos and stories. There's also a room with a film playing. The museum offers headphones, but we chose not to use them. It's not a very large exhibit, but it's very well done. I'm glad that we toured the museum - it's worth a visit.... More

Everyone should visit a Holocaust museum at least once in their life - and this one is especially poignant because it includes an original box car, used to transport prisoners to the concentration camps like cattle. Terribly sad, but we should never forget the horrors, so we can prevent them from ever happening again.

Please take time during your Dallas visit to go to the West End! Visit The Dallas Holocaust Museum. Not only will you see exhibits and learn about pre World War II and the plight of people during Hitler's reign, you will hear firsthand from a Holocaust Survivor. You will witness someone who went through horrific times but is such a... More

Visiting the Holocaust Museums in every city I visit has become a habit. Yet, I can't avoid the tears that come when I view the horror these poor people went through. This museum is excellent, despite the very grim subject matter.

Amazing piece of horrible history that we all need to know about. Went with my good friend and her teenaged twins. It was powerful for us all.

I visited the Dallas Holocaust Museum while down for a business trip, and it was one of the highlights of my time in Dallas. The museum was fairly small, but I felt it was made up for by the quality of the exhibit and the entrance price. Realistically, I'd say one could cover the full museum in about 1-2 hours.... More

Expect to move through this very slowly. Its an audio tour at your own pace. I have a mature 8 year old who loves history but she got bored waiting for me. I could have spent hours in there listening to all the different stories and various narrations that went along with eat item/photo. At the end there's a "movie... More
