Holocaust Museum Houston Grand Reopening
Holocaust Museum Houston, Lester and Sue Smith Campus will grand reopen after a $34 million expansion of its original building. By more than doubling in size to a total of 57,000 square feet, the new facility will rank as the nation's fourth largest Holocaust museum and the first to be fully bilingual in English and Spanish. The new three-story structure will house a welcome center, four permanent galleries and two changing exhibition galleries, classrooms, research library, café, 200-seat indoor theater and 175-seat outdoor amphitheater.
Opening weekend activities include Holocaust Survivor Talks at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm on Saturday, and 1 pm and 3 pm on Sunday. The first 500 people in line each day of opening weekend will receive a free Holocaust Museum Houston tote bag.
Admission is free for children and students (includes college students with valid college ID), $15 for adults, and $10 for seniors and AARP members; free for active military through Labor Day as part of the Blue Star Museums program.
