The Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio is located on NW Military Hwy. The memorial museum itself is very hard to find as there are no signs that say museum, so go in the main west entrance. The museum is located inside the Jewish Community Center, on the second floor. You must check in at the courtesy desk first to gain entrance. Then its upstairs on the left, ask the person there at the desk about the 6 minute holocaust documentary, and after that make sure you ask her about viewing the displays outside on the balcony as that was definitely worth seeing as well. As far as the museum goes, not a whole lot to see but it is put together very professionally and definitely worth the visit.

Very nicely designed museum! Fyriendly, helpful staff. It is set up different than other museums of this nature. It is located in the Jewish Community Center and I was amazed to find out about all the other services they offer. Overall, I'd recommend this museum to anyone interested in learning more about the Holocaust.

This museum is small but mighty. They have organized the material in such a way that truly allows you to see the progression of the rise of Hitler, the catastrophe of the Holocaust, and the devastating impact it has had in the decades since. Worth the price of admission (donation) and then some.

This was a very well done Holocaust Center - Building also houses some schools and community center so from the outside it was hard to know that it was in the building, but it's well worth walking about and finding it upstairs. Good organization and resources for teachers. Friendly intern who was helpful. Even well versed students of the Holocaust will find it worthwhile. They feature the stories of local survivors and partisans.

There is no wow factor at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and that is as it should be. Viewing the images and artifacts presented, requires thoughtful consideration. Hitler's calls to "make Germany great again" have a familiar ring in today's political climate.

We needed to kill some time before heading to the airport, and although we were not immediately excited about finding it open on a Sunday afternoon, we are glad we went. The history of Holocaust survivors in Texas is genuinely fascinating.

Even though this museum is small, it is stuffed with insightful information that is important in knowing the true history behind the Holocaust. While taking a tour here, I was allowed to speak with multiple survivors as well as indulge in an extensive discussion with one of the historians that dedicates his time to the museum. I definitely recommend this attraction! It was a fantastic learning experience for me.

To have survived the second World War, you can reflect over what could have been and what happened, the horror of it all, and how lucky you were.
