The museum is entirely dedicated to show you what can happen when nobody does anything when something is wrong, genocide, racism and more. It covers the holocaust to Rwanda. I was impressed with the stories you can see in the museum. It can change the way you thinks and makes you reconsider the way you act with your children or... More

Great place, but you can get a more lively view in other museums in other cities, for example, in Krakow. If you don't have enough time in the city, I suggest going to other places.

This is my opinion as a European well-traveled person: if you know European museums about holocaust, or visited memorials, it will not add that much to your life, then spend time visiting other museums about local culture. Yes, there are sections about Yugoslavia and Sudan, Guatemala, etc, but almost 65% of the rooms is about nazi terror which is introduced... More

Though this museum is not mexico oriented and often not included in lists of top things to do in Mexico City , it is definitely worth a visit. It is a modern interactive museum dealing with the Holocaust and ongoing genocides and teaches us that tolerance is what mankind should be striving for. Don't worry if you don't speak Spanish,...

This is a modern museum with lots of video presentations and attractively designed exhibits. It's a difficult theme, so don't go expecting it to be "fun." You may emerge from the place depressed...but you will be smarter for it and armed to spread the word that genocide is still a very real danger to humanity and we must be vigilant... More

The museum is centrally located which was in part why I chose to visit it. If you are not proficient in Spanish, I recommend paying extra to get an English audio guide. The museum appears geared primarily for school groups, which doesn't take away from visiting it as a family, couple or individual. As a tourist, I might put this... More

I have visited several museums about the holocaust and genocide/crimes against humanity, in cities such as London or Berlin, and yet, this museum was a great surprise; there are less items than in other museums, but the experience is better in my opinion; I suggest taking the guided tour (instead of the audio tour), both are free. The architecture is... More
