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.

Dallas Holocaust Museum for Peace &Tolerance should be seen not just by locals ,but visitors as well. This museum has rare artifacts collected from WWII not to mention the number of students who attend field trips and those in the service and law enforcement who visit. The museum is not only growing in numbers of visitors but in stature as... More

This museum features selected events and dates, and features everything they could find about those events and dates. It is well done and filled with information not seen before. There are as many stories as there were casualties, and here you'll discover stories you haven't found or even heard of often. The developers put their hearts and history into this... More

This museum is split into 2 parts. They offer audio devices as part of the $10 cost. One part is devoted to Anne Frank and her history and the other is devoted to artifacts and info about the Jewish persecution.

We took our Grand-kids (13, 10, 8) and they were captivated by the video and photo presentations. Adults can read all the captions and other written information. Look forward to them expanding.

Really well done and thought out considering the space. It was tough at times to get close enough to the exhibits due to the crowds but just took some patience. Huge impact for such a small space.

When I think of a Museum, I think of an area that will have historical artifacts and lots of things that you can interact with that will teach you about the particular subject at hand. While we were provided with a handheld listening device and instructed on its use, that's about as far as the interaction went. The main artifacts... More

The Dallas Holocaust Museum was founded 32 years ago Holocaust survivors. It's original location was the basement of the Jewish Community Center. The location you visited represents an interim step to provide additional space until we can raise t he funds to build on the land we purchased behind the Museum. We will break ground in approximately 2-3 years. The... More

This is a remarkable and somber museum. The displays are powerful in capturing the lives and memories of the individuals who were personally touched by this horrific event.

I toured the museum one morning by myself. Easy to find. Just a street over from JFK museum. Who ever designed it had good intentions, however most of the artifacts were either replicas or "representations" of what would have been. It was a newer looking and clean exibit. It was extremely small tho. It was probably 1/4 of the size... More

Very nice staff. A lot of information in a relatively small space. I think they are trying to move into a larger space. Price to get in is reasonable.

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is gem of a find. The Ann Frank exhibit was well done and presented some things I hadn't seen before. The main part of the museum offered a number of small personal items which I found very interesting. The final room which recorded names of those lost in the Holocaust was very moving. Doesn't take long... More
