This museum is very close to Palacio de Bellas Artes and just across the street from Almeda Park. There are some signs in English but if you do not speak Spanish, it is probably better to get an audioguide. I think it was about 80 pesos. About half of the museum is about the Nazis with the other half dedicated... More

For a very low amount (moreless $6.5 usd) you can visit the museum in just 1 hour and a half with a guide! The way they are prepared/informed its incredible and they make you think about your behavior and attitude towards your similars. Definitely this is a worldclass museum!

I would never have expected to find a holocaust museum in Mexico - of all places! I was pleasantly surprised - the set up of the museum is extraordinary. Cudos to the designers and curators. The museum starts with the horrors of genocide in the 2nd world war. It shows the extent and deliberateness of how the Nazis tried to... More

This museum is out of this world! It's super well thought with lots if videos, short readings, audio guides, photos, etc. this makes a big difference because it touches on very strong subjects but makes it all very interesting and well put. The part about Tolerance is amazing!!! I wish I had know more about Guatemala, Darfur, Armenia, Rwanda and... More

One of the reasons I visited Mexico City was because I was aware of a fairly new Holocaust museum and very curious how good it was. It was fabulous, beautifully thought out, classy exhibits, extremely interesting and comparable to the best of our US museums. We spent over 4 hrs and needed more time. The last whole section of the... More

A visit to the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia is a MUST for any person with a sense of history and an interest in the pain and suffering inflicted by people on others in the name of nationalism and purity of race. Forget about tolerance. This museum is dedicated to the Intolerance of some governments towards some minority groups during the... More

This is a very modern multi level building with three exhibition levels. Inside, the museum resembles a dark maze of depressing alleyways reflecting the cruelty of humanity. The main theme of the museo is the holocaust but it also covers the genocidal episodes in Cambodia, Armenia, Yugoslavia, Darfur and Rwanda. All pretty psychotic stuff really but it is what you...

I visit Mexico City often, but this was my first visit to the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia. I was blown away. This museum definitely rivals our Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Do not visit Mexico City without visiting this museum!

I really enjoyed this museum - it was well thought out, contained a range of different mediums (photos, text, videos etc.) and covered not only the genocides that have occurred, but also focuses on tolerance, diversity and the power of the language. I speak/read at a getting closer towards intermediate level of Spanish. I didn't hire an English audio guide... More
