Holocaust Museum Houston



About Us

Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims and honoring the survivors’ legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, the Museum teaches the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy. Since opening in 1996, the Museum has welcomed more than 2.8 million visitors and served more than 6.5 million students.

After a $44 million expansion, the Museum reopened in June 2019 after more than doubling in size to a total of 57,000 square feet. Ranked as the nation's fourth largest Holocaust museum and fully bilingual in English and Spanish, the new three-story structure houses a welcome center, four permanent galleries and two changing exhibition galleries, classrooms, research library, café, 187-seat indoor theater and 175-seat outdoor amphitheater. In becoming one of the top Holocaust museums in the country, the organization has broadened its mission as a superregional hub for Holocaust education and a national voice for human rights and social justice.
