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.

I would really recommend you go and visit this museum. I was extremely moved. I was able to hear actual accounts from a holocaust survivor. Like stepping into another world. I will forever remember.

I feel this is a really good Holocaust museum. It gets very little publicity, but go if you can. It is near the Sixth Floor Museum, and I would recommend doing both in a morning or an afternoon. I have been to Europe and have...More

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

Purchased our tickets at the door. You're given a headset to wear for narration and can walk about the museum at your own pace. It was informative but a lot of reading along with narration was helpful. Parking wasn't ideal as you do have to...More
