This place is a HUGE slap in the face of reality. I broke down in tears while walking through here, looking at pictures, reading stories of what those people endured. The children...it was just...well, sickening. Don't get me wrong, it's a must see for anyone,...More

Joined a docent tour of the centre and the gentleman really brought the story of the holocost and the link to Houston alive. Reminds us all to remember and not just stand by.

We got a groupon and it was very much worth the visit. Lots to read so make sure you have a few hours. It was extremely sad to read about the stories. But to understand and know what happened during the holocaust, keeps the memory...More

This place is very good. The feeling you get seeing everything brings up lots of emotions. You just cant imagine what these people went through. There is a train car outside also.

No matter how many books I've read or documentaries I've viewed regarding the Holocaust, I am still beyond touched by the pain inflicted on human beings by supposed human beings. The Houston Holocaust Museum charges such a small fee for such a huge display of...More

Everyone should know our past so not to repeat it. This is the place to go for that kind of knowlege. Please, just don't go smiling in your selfies.

It is a small museum but they are about to expand. The photos and stories are touching and you learn more than you think you know. You get to see real artifacts as well as stand in a car and envision what they went through.

Exhibits and video accounts are enlightening and very moving. Museum is rather small, but a worthwhile experience.

This is a very powerful museum. Probably not too interesting for very young kids, but great for 12 and up, I'd say. It's not huge so it doesn't take a long time to see it all. They've really done an excellent job with this museum.

Not impressed. Not enough to warrant a trip. After visiting the Holocost museum in DC this was a huge letdown

DC is what I would rate phenomenal...no comparison. BUT that doesn't mean Houston isn't any good. Its much smaller, yes, but its educational, lots of videos running different clips with actual footage, artifacts throughout. More
