Well, treasure has to be understood in its real meaning of something of great value and clarity... this is a very serious place telling an awful story but it is a spiritual center of sorts. Must see

We enjoyed the experience (if one can say that about a holocaust museum). It's currently in a temporary location so we're waiting for the completion of the remodel to go again. So check to see if that's been completed.

I guess there’s a temporary location while they build a new one. The temporary one is worth avoiding until they finish their permanent space. Some interesting stories, but nearly zero artifacts. For $12, it felt too pricey. We spent about 30-40 minutes here before finishing...More

This museum should have been more in-depth and extensive. We only spent 10 minutes in the museum and that included the restroom break we took. It is literally 3 rooms and the first room is dedicated to promoting homosexuality. Personally, I find the first room...More

This museum is filled with first-hand accounts, documents and personal effects of those victims that suffered one of the ultimate human tragedies. Very reflective and the experience will stay with you a long time.

We are staying nearby, and it seems to be under construction. I don't know if it is being remodeled or built for the first time, but it is already very striking. The architecture is dramatic and evocative. I will definitely look for it when I...More

DC is what I would rate phenomenal...no comparison. BUT that doesn't mean Houston isn't any good. Its much smaller, yes, but its educational, lots of videos running different clips with actual footage, artifacts throughout. More
