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 museum was very interesting. It focused a lot more on some of the events during the holocaust and how people survived or passed during the time. It was focused more on the people who went through this tragedy rather than the actual tragedy. Definitely...More

We were incredibly lucky to have a Holocaust survivor speaking the day we went. My teenage son came away from the experience with so much more of an understanding of the emotions, memories, etc from the Holocaust. The museum itself is very small and probably...More

This museum is definitely an hour of your time worth. Pictures, movies, stories... you'll learn a lot about this time and the terrible experiences. I would not take kids below 12 years to this museum.

This is a very small museum, with many photos and a small amount of historical objects. The audio was very very good, and although I already knew most of what was communicated, I learned several new facts about the history of the Holocaust, as well....More

This is truly a "hidden Gem" in Dallas. Right next door to the Kennedy Museum, most people have no idea it is there. The Docents, give a wonderful understanding of this meaningful exhibit

If we're not careful... this can definitely happen here in the US. When you first walk in you receive these things that look like remote controls. You basically push the keypad and it'll start talking. It does take quite a while to get through everything...More
