#8 of 39 in Museums in Houston
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.

  • Great Museum. Sometimes history is Obviously sad but educational none the less. Other than observations on the holocaust they also had some really great art.
  • Poor content, but automated audio guidance is great. Be sure to bring headphones because you may dial a phone number and you can start the tour, unless you take guided tour (check by phone/website prior your visit)The staff in general in spite of security is professional and polite.
