This place is very good. The feeling you get seeing everything brings up lots of emotions. You just cant imagine what these people went through. There is a train car outside also.

Everyone should know our past so not to repeat it. This is the place to go for that kind of knowlege. Please, just don't go smiling in your selfies.

It is a small museum but they are about to expand. The photos and stories are touching and you learn more than you think you know. You get to see real artifacts as well as stand in a car and envision what they went through.

Exhibits and video accounts are enlightening and very moving. Museum is rather small, but a worthwhile experience.

This is a very powerful museum. Probably not too interesting for very young kids, but great for 12 and up, I'd say. It's not huge so it doesn't take a long time to see it all. They've really done an excellent job with this museum.

Not impressed. Not enough to warrant a trip. After visiting the Holocost museum in DC this was a huge letdown

The Holocaust Museum in Houston is small but very informative and has excellent exhibits. It is second only to the one in DC. Everyone should visit this museum. History forgotten is history repeated.

DC is what I would rate phenomenal...no comparison. BUT that doesn't mean Houston isn't any good. Its much smaller, yes, but its educational, lots of videos running different clips with actual footage, artifacts throughout. More
