Holocaust Museum Houston#7 in Best Things To Do in Houston
If you're looking for an educational stop to add to your itinerary, consider the Houston Holocaust Museum. Exhibits include everything from film footage taken during World War II and inside the concentration camps to a 1942 railcar for transporting victims. But the museum 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.
Recent visitors said the museum is particularly well-designed, adding that the exhibits were thought-provoking and informative.
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 5 p.m., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for seniors and military, and free for students. For more information visit the official website.
