Visiting Guidelines

The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is temporarily closed.

Given the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Dallas County and the rollback of the State’s phased reopening, we have decided to pause our plans to reopen on July 8 and have cancelled our Member-Only Days on July 1 and July 2.

While we feel confident that we can reopen the Museum safely and protect our staff and visitors, we are part of a larger community.  We believe it is important to support Governor Abbott’s, Mayor Johnson’s and Judge Jenkins’ appeals for Dallasites to stay home, if at all possible, to be good community partners and neighbors. While museums are still allowed to be open at 50% capacity, opening at this time does not feel responsible.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum. By visiting the Museum, you agree to the policies and guidelines below.

Security Checkpoint at Museum Entrance
All visitors who enter the Museum must pass through security. All bags are X-rayed and subject to search. No weapons or hazardous materials will be allowed into the Museum. No bag larger than 19” tall, 17” wide, and 8” deep will be permitted into the Museum. We do not offer a bag/coat check, or storage area for strollers. Please plan accordingly before you visit the Museum.
