Houston Holocaust Museum
In his midnight millennium speech, Pope John Paul said the most defining elements of the 20th century were the rise and fall of two oppressive ideologies that victimized millions of people, Communism and Nazism. This museum is a tribute to the victims of the Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Through changing exhibits, films and lectures, it seeks to inform future generations of the racism of the holocaust and the horrifying results of hatred. In addition to exhibits, there is a library, theater and document archives.
I went there with my grandfather and at first I really didn't want to go.
But our tourist was AMAZING and seeing everything there and him explaining it so that everyone in our group might understand was extroadanary.
It was free and at the end I cried seeing the pictures and real footage, it really made you understand how horrible the event was.
If you have children it's great cause there is a garden outside for them to put a "rock" in and there is a train car too so you can see inside of that.
I thought it was very interesting. I never really knew what it was about until I went to that. Just seeing what Hitler and the Nazis did to those people just made me want to cry. Those people who died were defenseless and helpless. Altogether, the museum was a great tribute to the people who died. The admission was free, the film was great, and the exhibits were unforgetable! It was definately worth the time!
In memory of those who died during that era who didn't deserve to.
The Holocaust Museum is such a good place to go to if you want to fully understand the horrors that went on during the second World War.
The very building is set up to represent certain things that will make you stop and think and wonder.
You must see this!
Everyone should go!!!
My daughter and I visited the museum this summer and found it to be an authentic representation of the atrocities and experiences of the Jewish people. The artifacts coupled with the expertise of the tour guide and the film shown capture the honest facts and depict the realism of the Jewish Haloucaust.
We especially appreciated the explanation of the events beginning with background knowledge and chronologically moving through the events of the era. Thanks for your hard work in ensuring that the following generations 'do not ever forget'.
I think the holocaust museum is a place that we can all go to and remind ourselfs how far hate can go. When you watch an interveiw of a holocaust surviver you are just hypnatized by what their saying! It is a wonderful museum but it is a sad one too.
This is a tremendous educational tool: took our older children and friends. It was not too long to be tiring, complete in its depictions for those who love detail, and a worthy reminder and honor we all should occasionally see.
Going to this museum was a great experience for me because it really gave me the feeling of actually being there and it really makes you think. The way the museum is built, as well as decorated really gives everything this gloomy, ominous feeling which suits the topic of this museum perfectly. It was like going back in time and actually being there to watch all this happen.
The truth must be told or shown in respect to those who were subjected to such holocaust. I have seen the museum in Washington also, and must tell you that their's is more informed. The PASSPORT experience will make it more understanding to what extent there was no escape of this inhuman experience. Thank you to those who made it possible to keep we humans remembering the Holocaust- must not live it but remember it- so it will never happen again.
I had not anticipated that my visit to the Houston Holocaut Museum would be so intense! It was an emotional event, but I never expected to be so sensitive to the experience. I paid $3.00 for the audio tour. It was worth so much more. The tour gave me a personal guide leading me slowly through the timeline of the Holocaust. This museum is a must see! I hope to visit again.
