Overview

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 main exhibit focuses on three separate events which occurred on one day. Interesting focus. Lots of information, yet the most moving was the various stories from survivors.

We made the mistake of coming here with our young kids. There are many photographs and you have to listen to the correaponding audio on the headsets. Very difficult for young children to sit through. Not too many artifacts to look at.

This museum was not on our itinerary. So we stayed in Dallas a little longer to visit. Wow, are we glad we did. This is a small museum. Quality v. Quantity. Their self guided audio tour was the best audio tour I've ever experienced in...More

Was very disappointed in the Dallas Holocaust Museum. I had heard great things about it but when my husband and I went there, there really was not much there. It relies heavily on the audio tour to tell the story. There is no teacher discount...More

Thrilled to see this horrific event is being captured and never forgotten. Being from Chicago and having an extremely large Jewish presence, our Holocaust museum is several floors and encompasses a very large building. I was a bit disappointed to see how small this museum...More

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
