Create an itinerary including Holocaust Museum 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.

  • First time I came on my own and it was closed for some reason so second time with the family we entered. We had to go through security metal detectors and bags inspected. No guns, pepper spray...

  • A small museum but wonderfully curated. Like any museum dedicated to the holocost it is hard to visit on an emotional level, but the presentation is appropriate without being overwhelming...

  • Great Reminder ! Everyone needs to experience this Museum. In times like today where our country feels divided. Its almost scary to imagine how ONE Man couldn't potentially cause a whole movement of hate! Genocide! We are all one Race! Human Race! This Museum also has Spanish captions throughout exhibitions and photos. This is one exhibit you will be sure glad you came to. May all come away with Love in our hearts. Sadness to what transpired...We should never forget!
  • I absolutely love this place. It is very educational. This was my second time going. They remodeled since the last time I went. If you are ever in Houston this is a place definitely want to visit.
