This museum became one of my favorites in México, it gaves you so many experiences and feedback about our lives. Take the guided tour, it takes 2hours and it departs every 20 minutes.

I have seen people and families lined up for this museum for the past year and finally checked it out. Exceptionally well done with excellent exhibits about the extermination of the Jews, Romas, homosexuals by the Hitler regime, genocide in Guatemala, Darfur, Ruwand, Yugoslavia, the movement of migrants and immigrants in the americas and most important of all the acceptance...

I attended Museo Memoria y Tolerancia on my own and spent over 2 hours here. I'd recommend getting the audio guide (extra 60-80 pesos) as all the displays are in Spanish. I have a keen interest in genocide and in particular the Holocaust and the displays here were intriguing and moving. The layout was well throughout and the descriptions of... More

I was very impressed with this museum. As the name implies, it has a dual purpose. Half of the museum tells the story of some of the worst atrocities of the 20th Century, with great detail. The second half focuses on how the learnings from those atrocities can and should be used to build a more tolerant society. Based on... More

Visited the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia to see a specific exhibition but went through the entire museum. Wasn't sure what to expect but was very moved by the presentation of information and historical events. Some very interesting and innovative methods used. The museum really makes you reflect on mankind and hopefully try to be a better person.

The museum is nice but there is nothing new or amazing to see. It's about holocaust, a tragedy, but like many others in humanity If traveling to Mexico City there are tons of other amazing things to do and Museums to visit. Near this museum is Bellas Artes, Central Alameda and downtown, better save time for these beautiful places

Museum Memory and Tolerance is a museum that records the greatests holocaust in humanity, with a strong enphasis on the semitic tragedy we all know but done with taste and great museography. Although you leave with a sense of stomach churn this is a important to remember, as as to never forget what kind of monsters can lurk in each... More

please note that majority of this exhibition is in Spanish It leads the visitor through the most horrible genocide in recent history - Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur and Guatemala. It also does not shy from Mexican forced disappearances. The displays impose questions - on lack of international reaction, on atrocities caused by neighbors. In its tolerance part, it asks us why...

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
