Holocaust Museum Houston


A superbly curated and presented museum offers an in-depth education on the context, history and aftermath of not only the holocaust itself but of Nazi Germany's terrifying rise to power. Other exhibits trace the lives of Houston-connected European Jews and focus on the rescue efforts made by the Danish.

Due to damage sustained from Hurricane Harvey, the museum is operating out of a temporary site (9220 Kirby Dr) until late 2018. Call ahead before visiting.
