Overview
More
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.

Via phone-like devices one is able to navigate and hear different events pertaining to the Holocaust. There are remarkable individual stories of valor about people that convey both a macro, but also a micro review of historical events and personal experiences. The museum does not...More

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.
