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!!!

Amazing place. It intrigues you, and best of all, leaves you thinking and reflecting once you are done. Go with a lot of time. I spent close to 3 hours in there, and still had a lot left to read.

The museum is entirely dedicated to show you what can happen when nobody does anything when something is wrong, genocide, racism and more. It covers the holocaust to Rwanda. I was impressed with the stories you can see in the museum. It can change the way you thinks and makes you reconsider the way you act with your children or... More

Great place, but you can get a more lively view in other museums in other cities, for example, in Krakow. If you don't have enough time in the city, I suggest going to other places.

This is my opinion as a European well-traveled person: if you know European museums about holocaust, or visited memorials, it will not add that much to your life, then spend time visiting other museums about local culture. Yes, there are sections about Yugoslavia and Sudan, Guatemala, etc, but almost 65% of the rooms is about nazi terror which is introduced... More

Though this museum is not mexico oriented and often not included in lists of top things to do in Mexico City , it is definitely worth a visit. It is a modern interactive museum dealing with the Holocaust and ongoing genocides and teaches us that tolerance is what mankind should be striving for. Don't worry if you don't speak Spanish,...

This is a modern museum with lots of video presentations and attractively designed exhibits. It's a difficult theme, so don't go expecting it to be "fun." You may emerge from the place depressed...but you will be smarter for it and armed to spread the word that genocide is still a very real danger to humanity and we must be vigilant... More

The museum is centrally located which was in part why I chose to visit it. If you are not proficient in Spanish, I recommend paying extra to get an English audio guide. The museum appears geared primarily for school groups, which doesn't take away from visiting it as a family, couple or individual. As a tourist, I might put this... More
