There is no wow factor at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and that is as it should be. Viewing the images and artifacts presented, requires thoughtful consideration. Hitler's calls to "make Germany great again" have a familiar ring in today's political climate.

We needed to kill some time before heading to the airport, and although we were not immediately excited about finding it open on a Sunday afternoon, we are glad we went. The history of Holocaust survivors in Texas is genuinely fascinating.

it is too far to walk..quite a distance. Not sure on public transit as we had a rental car. It was on a main street, so I would suspect there is public transportation.
