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.

As other reviews state, this is a very small museum but the curator does a great job of maximizing the space by choosing to focus on a single day during the holocaust. I’ve never seen this done before and it works well, however, the museum...More

This IS a small location, but they are building a larger location opening next year. It is crowded, but it is worth the trip. I, personally, liked the handheld audio devices. This allows each person to focus on an area in depth or move past...More

While it is a small museum, it packs a lot of information and artifacts in that space. Please note that there is a larger more permanent home for the museum being built at this time across the street.

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.
