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 Dallas Holocaust Museum is a painful experience. It reveals in chilling detail one of the darkest chapters in human history. It also shows how people are capable of evil and inhumanity against fellow human beings, branding them as "inferior", "dangerous", and "deserving of being...More

Interesting and informative - you see how lives were shattered and also see how unbreakable the human spirit can be.

The museum is small yet powerful. You are given an audio guide to go through the museum. There are a lot of different stations that give a lot of good details about the exhibits. I would highly recommend taking time to visit.

Visited with my three children, ages 10, 13 and 17. It’s definitely worth the time if you are in the area. Wouldn’t make a special trip.

It gives you a whole new understanding of what the Jews went through and how they persevered through it all and the personal interview theater was very provocative and profound. There are several survivors living in or near Dallas who make appearances throughout the year.

I don't remember seeing any restrictions on clothing or accessories. My wife was in a wheelchair at the time and I know she was carrying a bag of some sort along with her purse.
