We recently took a trip to the Dallas Holocaust & Human Rights Museum and were absolutely blown away at how educational and powerful all of the exhibits were! Some of humanity’s most incredible stories of struggle and courage live right here in downtown Dallas and it is definitely a must-visit.

The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum was founded in 1984 by a group of Holocaust survivors who wanted to create a sacred place of remembrance. The 55,000-square-foot museum offers a mix of permanent exhibitions on the Holocaust and human rights to special rotating exhibitions exploring African-American experiences, LGBTQ rights, and more.
The Holocaust wing educates visitors on the history of events that led to the persecution of millions of Jews. The Museum uses powerful installations such as an authentic WWII boxcar, as well as survivor testimonies, to capture the historical events.
DIMENSIONS IN TESTIMONY℠ THEATER
Our favorite part was the Dimensions in Testimony℠ Theater. Using high-definition interview recordings paired with voice recognition technology, visitors have the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with different Holocaust survivors and ask them questions about their personal experiences. Provided by the USC Shoah Foundation, Dallas is one of only 12 museums in the world to offer this immersive experience!
CURRENT SPECIAL EXHIBITION
