Construction Progress

PARKING LOT CLOSURE OF THE DALLAS HOLOCAUST MUSEUM BEGINS MONDAY, JULY 16, 2018

Starting this coming Monday, July 16, the Museum will begin construction on its new parking garage, thus making the current parking lot on Houston Street next to Corgan Architects, unavailable for use.

Despite this closure, there are numerous self-parking options available for purchase within three blocks of the Museum. Below is a PDF that lists alternate parking sites. We suggest utilizing one of the following three options:

  1. Directly across from the Museum at the corner of Houston and Elm Streets there is an open air parking lot behind The Sixth Floor Museum.
  2. If you would prefer a covered parking space, there is an underground parking garage next door to the Records Building on Elm, at the intersection of Record and Elm Streets just a block away from the Museum’s main entrance.
  3. The West End Station of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) system is located one block from the Museum’s main entrance.

Thank you for your patience during this exciting time in the Museum’s history -- and we look forward to you visiting us soon

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Deanne McElroy, Membership Officer, at dmcelroy@dallasholocaustmuseum.org or at 469-399-5210.
