About the Museum & How to Contact Us:
Founded in 1984, 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. Located in Dallas’ Historic West End, the Museum hosts more than 65,500 visitors annually, among them 31,000 school children. A top-rated attraction in North Texas, the Museum is one of just a few Holocaust-related museums or centers in the United States and the only Holocaust museum serving North Central Texas, as well as the adjacent states of Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. The Museum has been recognized for its compelling and creative programming, internationally recognized exhibits, and world-class speakers. North Texas is home to about 125 survivors, refugees and hidden children from the Holocaust. Dedicated members and volunteers throughout the region and the state generously support the Museum every year.

Programs and services include:

  • Permanent and special exhibitions of the highest caliber, with docent-guided and audio-guided tours;
    • Holocaust Survivors’ testimonies shared with thousands of Museum visitors and school groups,
       each year and Survivor presentations to organizations throughout the region
    • Hundreds of school tours conducted for children grades 5-12, plus College Nights for
       post-secondary students;
    • Summer educator conferences and ongoing teacher workshops and orientations;
    • Museum Experience Fund sponsoring Museum visits for schools in need;
    • Traveling Curriculum Trunks circulated to classrooms throughout the region;
    • Upstander Speaker Series bringing renowned international speakers on human rights issues to
       the DFW community;
    • Subject matter experts speaking to hundreds of schools and community groups;
    • A rich archive and research library available to Museum members; and
