The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance is dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust, and to teaching the moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference, for the benefit of all humanity.
The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance teaches about the past, to learn for today, in order to impact the future. A not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) since 1984, at our inception we were known as the Dallas Memorial Center for Holocaust Studies and were located in the basement of the Jewish Community Center building on Northaven Road in North Dallas. A group of local survivors created the Holocaust Center to preserve the memory of what they had endured.
As the center welcomed more visitors, the need to expand became more and more apparent. In 2005, the renamed Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance opened at its transitional location in the historic West End district and we are planning to erect a larger, free-standing facility on the site that have purchased at the north-west corner of Houston and Pacific streets.
In the past year, we reached more than 40,000 students and hosted an additional 15,000 walk-in visitors.
Tours of the exhibit are self-guided using digital Audio Guides, which are included in the price of admission. The audio guides are in English and Spanish. The exhibit can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours to view.
