Additional Summer Tours Offered at Holocaust Museum Houston

HOUSTON, TX (June 25, 2007) – Holocaust Museum Houston has added two weekday opportunities for guests to take advantage of free, docent-led tours this summer.

The Museum routinely offers docent-led tours each Saturday and Sunday at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. but has added tours at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. each weekday through August to accommodate summer crowds.

The Museum receives an overflow of people during the summer months, and while visitors are welcome to examine the Museum on their own, Executive Director Susan Myers said docent-led tours offer a more focused experience.

“I really think you get so much more by a docent tour than by yourself,” Myers said. “Docents are trained on the history and lessons of the Holocaust and can help each visitor learn of his or her own individual responsibility to make certain similar tragedies do not go unchecked in the future."

Reservations are not required for the weekday or weekend drop-in tours, but groups of 10 are requested to call 713-942-8000, ext. 302 or e-mail tours@hmh.org if possible.

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.

Holocaust Museum Houston is free and open to the public and is located in Houston’s Museum District at 5401 Caroline St., Houston, TX 77004. For more information about the Museum, call 713-942-8000 or visit www.hmh.org.
