Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“Small but good.”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

I liked it but we were close to closing time (within a hour). I did kind of rush through it. If you don't know much about the Holocaust, it is a good beginning. It is small though.

“Truthful history that everyone should know!”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

This mseum tells the whole story ... about how the world stood by and let the Holocaust happen. I am so glad to see a museum that addresses the failure of the world to stop the genocide. I enjoyed this museum even more the the Holocaust museum in Berlin, Germany!

“only wished that it was larger!”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

We were staying at a downtown hotel and we had wanted to do some walking and site seeing before we left Dallas. My hubby found the museum. Its small and wished it had been bigger but the lasting affect still lingers inside you when you leave. We just happened to meet TWO survivors and I felt so blessed and lucky to have. I am a WWII history lover and this is the closest I have ever come to.

This place is filled with artifacts and much history. The museum and the experience itself is one that you won't forget. If you are lucky there might be book signings from those who are survivors of the holocaust or children of the survivors. Check their calender to see what special events are happening. The museum is organized and the staff is very polite. There is so much to see and read about that it will take you a while to make your way through the museum.

“This isn't exactly the kind of "attraction" that makes you feel”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

all warm and fuzzy but, it's not intended to. What this museum does do effectively is remind you of the atrocities that happened in the 1930's and 1940's in Nazi era Germany. I highly recommend setting aside a 1-2 hours to visit this riveting and humbling small museum and I HIGHLY recommend taking your children.
