I've been to Holocaust museums and sites around the world, and the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia is as good as any, with in-depth and thoughtful exhibits on other instances of genocide around the world. The "Tolerancia" section is quite thought-provoking. Difficult time for non-Spanish speakers, though!

There is a worldwide movement of awareness and Mexico is not the exception. With a great collection of pieces and an amazing museography and educational value, this museum teaches about the big genocides through history in our planet. My favorite part, the "tolerance" part where you "interact" with intolerance on tv, on the movies, in some social experiments. I got... More

It presents material from the Holocaust and other genocides from WWII to the present for young and old to learn and see history in a very interesting way. It included Armenia and the information was so well presented. Museum is beautiful, educational and interesting.

Fantastic portrayal of intolerance, and genocide, beginning with the Nazi regime of Hitler, et al, moving right through Darfur, Syria, Serbia, Croatia, and all of the 20th Century examples of mans inhumanity to man. Would not rec

Contemporary and relevant. My visit was actually in June 2013. Trip Advisor is not allowing me to go that far back. This museum highlights the minority experience: Jewish people, indigenous groups (American Indians, Guatemalans, European Gypsies), the Sudanese, and other Black people. The exhibits are quite stunning.

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.
