  • Thank you, HOLOCAUST MUSEUM 🥰 Come learn with us! A wonderful experience for the whole family. "The community in which the museum lives defines its mission, values, and work. As professionals, we want our museums to be relevant, well attended, and meaningful for those who visit. Creating that meaningful place takes more than offering what we believe will resonate with the community. It takes the museum being an integral part of that community and a willingness to be responsive and adapt." -TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF MUSEUMS ✔️Complimentary copies of our academic magazine, The BIG Bang!, available at select regional museums.
  • Very awesome little museum. Highly recommend it. Powerful experience, took my 13 yo daughter and she highly enjoyed it. It makes you think about our past and value your current freedom! If you are from out of town, from El Paso or from the border region you have to visit.
  • It is el Paso's best museum. So much to learn about the need for tolerance in our troubled times today. Wonderful staff and volunteers. Great summer camp for kids.
  • Great informative place. Free entry they do take donations to help them stay open and maintain the place as well.
  • Excellent place to visit and learn about the history first had. Very friendly staff that will always answer any questions you may have. I walked away with some interesting facts.
