History Museum · Museum
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.

  • We budgeted two and a half hours, and could have spent far more. There is so much to learn about this single topic! While we found it engrossing, I cannot recommend it for children: the experience is focused on a written narrative and not activities that children require. . Overall, absolutely first rate.
  • Absolutely amazing. The renovated spaces are superb. My favorite section was one that seemed kind of hidden in the back. It's a medium sized room that has the dirt from all the camps including Auschwitz.
