Confronting without being depressing. Affords an opportunity to reflect and maybe get some insight as to why...why?

Despite being exclusively in Spanish, this new museum does not hold back. The displays are imaginative and informative and allows the viewer to dig deeper than the television news and the propagandists would have you believe. The building is a bit of a rabbit warren, but that in some ways adds to the adventure - just when you think you... More

A very beautiful and interesting Museo. Many videos, from many countries and facts I didn't know. This is not a fun place but a must to make sure we do not forget......I was born in Holland and it was very emotional for me to see all about WW2.

This is a museum that all school age children should see to help them appreciate the life they have. There were young teenagers on a school trip while we were there. They started out fooling around,laughing and carrying on as all teenagers do. They left the museum with a very quiet, serious and thoughtful demeaner. Clearly it affected them greatly.

Great concentrated museum, but worth visiting only if you know Spanish and don't mind having an hour of sadness.

An excellent museum. The journey begins on the top floor. The Holocaust. It ends with the present day - stories and examples of how, sadly, genocide, prejudice and discrimination are alive and kicking against many members of society. The building is well laid out. The space, lighting, and exhibits are clearly presented in Spanish and in English. The exhibition is... More

Besides giving a whole spectrum of the Holocaust, with exhibits containing even an original wagon of the train that took Jewish people to the extermination "camps", it embraces all the history of human persecution in the world. Excellent guides!!!
