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.

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is gem of a find. The Ann Frank exhibit was well done and presented some things I hadn't seen before. The main part of the museum offered a number of small personal items which I found very interesting. The final room which recorded names of those lost in the Holocaust was very moving. Doesn't take long... More

A nice and informative tribute to people wrongfully treated during a dark time in history. Small space with lots of photos and displays. Got crowded with school groups at times, but they moved through pretty quickly. Lucked into an hour talk by a Camp survivor named Max. He was the highlight of the visit. We will go again.

The individual electronic headsets provide a great tool to educate at your pace. Visually -- very impactful. This location is not very large, but well done.

It not only contains very sobering facts about the war, but personal accounts and artifacts. There were several places I teared up because of the amount of hate and violence that occured. You could feel and see the sadness. It's a great musuem and very well worth stopping by. As recommended by the museum also, I would really consider your... More

What a great stop on our recent trip to Dallas. It is a VERY small exhibit, but humbling and informative to say the least. Lots of memorabilia to see. What a sad time in history. Worth the stop!

My only complaint is that there weren't more to see and more survivor stories to learn about. The museum is such a great experience. It offers a lot of information and legit pieces from the holocaust. I encourage anyone who visits to get the audio set to use as you tour. It offers so much information and personal stories told...

It's just astonishingly unsettling that humans can inflict that kind of horror on others. It feels like this could happen again, if our politicians don't stop trying to divide us with propaganda...

I visited the museum with my husband, daughter and son-in-law. I have been to the holocaust museum in Washington DC, as well as the one in Paris. I've also seen the holocaust exhibit at the Imperial War Museum in London, and to Dachau and Bergen Belsen in Germany, so I do have exhibits to compare it to. While the Dallas... More

They put a lot of effort into a small museum. Excellent audio narrative that takes you on a real journey. If you are looking for a massive tour of several floors, this is not for you. But if you have a heart and a conscience, you will leave here feeling like you had a true experience.

We kind of stumbled upon this activity, but well worth the $10 per person. There was 60 minute documentary video of survivors' experiences, and then a 45 min or so walk through of artifacts, towns and people throughout that timeframe effected by the holocaust. Loved that you could move through at your own pace because not everyone wants to linger... More
