Through authentic artifacts, documents, and footage, Holocaust Museum Houston commemorates those who perished in one of humankind's biggest tragedies. Learn about the conditions inside ghettos and concentration camps, see how Jewish communities in Nazi-occupied Europe were reduced to rubble, and discover how propaganda was used to turn public opinion against the Jewish people. The museum features an authentic railcar similar to those used to transport people to the camps, as well as a fishing boat like the ones Danish fishermen used to ferry Jews to safety in Sweden. Audio features allow you to hear the testimonies of survivors who left war-torn Europe to settle in the Houston area. The museum is wheelchair-accessible and provides audio tours in English and Spanish. The audio guide is free for visitors with seeing and hearing difficulties.

  • Learned a lot... I also learned people suck... Sometimes...ok, most of the time.
  • Thoughtful, informative exhibits. Haunting, with hope filled messages for the future, I alternately felt sadness and helplessness. An important museum to visit
  • I came across this museum few weeks ago, the word "Holocaust" made me wandering with my complicated feeling. I know I sure will learn something, and also it will overwhelm me. It needs courage and bravery to walk into a timeline which full of tragedy. I made it today, and highly suggest you to go too. My special complement to all artists who make HOPE so marvelous and eye-opening.
  • I am glad there is a Holocaust Museum here. And the displays and movies are accurate. But I listened to a docent tell school kids many many inaccurate "facts". So sad when these kids could learn how to recognise signs of fascism in their own country if they heard the true and accurate story.
  • I am a WWII and a Holocaust enthusiast. I was so excited about visiting this museum. It's way too expensive, too small, and is very "surfacy". If you know nothing about the Holocaust and don't mind the price tag, go for it! You will learn. Very disappointing.
