A very well thought out presentation of the atrocities of the Holocaust. It is worth your time and money if you are in the greater Houston area.

Have visited the museum on two occasions, once by myself and once with my son. We were in awe of it as you will be once you go. It is such an important piece of history that we should never forget and to pay homage to all of our Jewish brothers and sisters that was lost during this terrible time. My father was in WWII and help liberate some of the camps and to hear him talk about it brought tears to your eyes. Strongly suggest you mark yourself out for at least half a day to see it and take in all the museum has to offer. You will find yourself going back to the more memorable displays as I did as it seems each one holds a different significance. You will walk out a different person........Shalom.

visited during Memorial Day Weekend. The military admission was $8 but it was waived. Also waived was my group's admission fee. It was very much appreciated. Museum was not as big as expected but it was clean and materials educational.

I loved the exhibit because we like sharing those moments of history with our children but also because it was very real and yet very moving at the same time. Loved the ship, must see.

We have visited several Holocaust Museums in the States and also in Europe. Most feature exhibits which tend to be repetitive because that is the very nature of a Holocaust museum and the history connected to it. This Houston museum was especially interesting and emotional because it had accounts in video from local personages who were directly connected to the Holocaust. This local approach seemed to be the focus of the museum and we really appreciated seeing and learning about those persons so directly involved. It is an emotional experience but one that must be seen and visited. We spent about 2+ hours there. I was really impressed with the design of the building and especially with the exterior blocks listing so many of the places in Europe where survivors had lived. There were small pebbles placed on many of these location slabs evoking the Jewish tradition of placing a memento to that person or place.
