The Holocaust Museum Houston stands as a beacon of remembrance, an institution dedicated to preserving the legacy of one of the darkest and saddest periods in human history. Since its founding in 1996, the museum has grown into a vital educational resource, drawing in visitors from all corners of the globe.

Immersive exhibits transport you on a poignant journey through the Holocaust's harrowing history, starting with the Nazis' rise to power in Germany and culminating in the liberation of concentration camps at the end of World War II. The exhibits offer a powerful mix of photographs, artifacts, documents, and personal testimonies that inform and move the heart.

The museum's architecture is also a bitter reminder of the adversities of the Holocaust. With its harsh lines and use of concrete and steel, the building itself evokes the starkness of a concentration camp. The museum's central tower, a replica of a guard tower from Auschwitz, stands as a chilling symbol of the atrocities that were committed during that terrible time.
