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 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.

This museum is currently in a very small space but will be moving to a larger space in the future. I thought they did their best to utilize the space effectively, but cannot compare to the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC. They were very focused on ties to Texas and the Dallas area, which I think distracts from the focus... More

Our 3--generation family visited this small museum in 3/17. The children were ages 9 & 7. We heard a survivor recount her experience, which got too long for the children. We left after 45 min. before they became disruptive. Hearing the survivor was a great opportunity, since few survivors remain. Unfortunately, at frequent times, it was difficult to hear the... More

The tour is some-what disorienting in following it numerically. Once you decide it doesn't matter what order you follow the process. I went with my girlfriend who loves this time period as I do also. It is exceptionally well done. The boxcar is enough & along with the children's shoes the picture of despair is complete. So terribly sad yet... More

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
