|About these ratings|
Although, as one TripAdvisor user puts it, the Holocaust Museum Houston is "not exactly a pleasant place to go," it is a very good place to visit. Another TripAdvisor user says: "It reminds us how easily a society can turn against innocent people and what we should be aware of so it does not ever occur again. You will be moved."
Exhibits include everything from film footage taken during World War II and inside the concentration camps to a 1942 railcar for transporting victims. But it also tells of resistance efforts, and to that end, displays a Danish fishing boat that rescued more than 7,000 Danish Jews from their deaths.
You'll find the Holocaust Museum Houston near the Children's Museum of Houston, just northeast of Hermann Park. The museum is open daily: Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free, but there is a suggested donation fee.
