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.

  • 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...

  • I was appalled. This did not honor the memories of those who suffered in the Holocaust. It was an insult to them. You walk in and see all this BLM and LGBTQ propaganda. If you want a museum for that.....  more

  • I've wanted to go here for years, and today I finally went. It was so moving to see history up close. Although we were not part of a guided tour, there were 2 or 3 we passes by and the guides were doing a great job. I could have easily spent 3 hours in here reading everything, there were some audio spots with short film clips scattered around. Every museum employee was incredibly kind. Make sure you visit the second floor too. I liked that the cafe had a self playing piano, that was a nice touch. There were spots to take pictures, but a few places where pictures are not allowed (which is understandable). I would definitely recommend visiting this museum.
  • Very well done, very informative the information provided filled in many gaps in my understanding of what really happened. The interviews with the servivers and their first hand recollection of the events is the heart of this experience. Make sure to watch the video in the black box you have to look down into, many people walked past without seeing the video that truly captures the sad truth of how these people were treated.
