The museum is very modern and thus does't make the visit as heavy. There are 5 floors, the szenery and applied media mix is great! The focus lays on the Holocaust but also other genocides are illustrated. Further, there is one floor on tolerance, there is a Education Center, and topic related movies are exibit at ground floor. Entrance is... More

This is one of the most avant garde museums in Mexico, the museum is designed in such a way that you can almost feel the pain of the people who suffers the holocaust. With a rich multimedia environment you can see videos of the different periods,they even have a wagon used to transport prisoners to concentration camps. It is an... More

Great reminder of what is a part of history and what can't be forgotten! Excellent museum, very interactive. If you keep things in perspective and understand history then it's a must. Good collection and well in order, worth the visit, and at an international level.

Much of the first half of the museum is dedicated to the Holocaust followed by studies of other genocides of the last 100 years. It is extremely well done and very interactive. I was really impressed with the quality and originality of the exhibits. And while it was somber, it was less depressing than I thought it might be. Perhaps... More

Obviously (and fortunately) not really Mexican as the topic of the Museum is the genocides of the last century. The Museum is well done in a modern and interesting building. The part on Memoria is terribly explicit and seriously depressing but extremely well done, the second part, supposedly more positive is less powerful (to be honest it's difficult to be... More

My family and I were so amazed by the quality and content of this museum that we are definitely considering returning the next time we visit Mexico City. The guided tours are the best way of getting to know the generalities of the museum, so you can return and spend additional time in the areas that were of most interest... More

I walked by -not looking for this museum and decided to check it out as I had some free time. I was so surprised. The name ( memory and tolerance ) doesn't really prepare you for the content of the museum . It was mesmerizing and some of it shocking. If you don't read Spanish , I would honestly suggest... More

The museum's tour starts from the top floor and goes down to the first rooms you see when you enter. The exhibition is long but full of meaning if you can focus your mind for 2-3 hours. It starts with the Jewish Holocaust and finishes with art works that help to bring out important questions and reflections about human nature.

Very good museum, especially their exhibits on recent events in Mexico, Rwanda, Guatemala, etc. A little more expensive than others, but worth it. My tour guide was awesome. Overall, a great and very interesting museum.
