Very well done. If you do not speak Spanish - get the headphones. Last section was disappointing. Worth the visit

I have visited a number of museums with exhibits of the Holocaust and other inhuman ways people have treated one another. This museum depicts terrible things in a way that is profound, educational and tasteful. Their temporary exhibits are also excellent.

The museum was great in presentation and info, but 75% of it seemed to be about the Jewish Holocaust. Why not just call it a "mostly holocaust" museum? The last 1/4 was reserved for other genocides, but I thought it was rather imbalanced. Additionally, in the future i hope they are able to expand to include multi-lingual captions or brochures...

This museum has an impressive collection and uses many modern museum techniques to tell the story about the persecution of the Jews in the Second World War, mainly in Europe. Coming from Europe and knowing about this part of history more than the average person, I still got an emotional shock by the exhibition. However, under the title "Memory and... More

I was so surprised by this one. We hadn't heard much about it and only went because we passed by it. It is amazing and emotional. It is not really about Mexico, but sends a message about intolerance and violence that is universal. It is very well set out and really worth a visit.

Everything's perfectly explained, you can understand a little more of what Jews lived during the holocaust and what it was like for everybody living in Poland and Germany these days. It really moves you. It's good for the whole family

The museum is a much needed addition the this convulsed city. Most of the museum deals with the holocaust during the II WW but other sections are just as interesting. The last sections lift the spirits and give some hope in dealing with tolerance.

Interesting. Modern. Cognitive. Makes you love more your life and be more attentive for people around you. Very helpful and friendly staff. Services on high level. I would recommend you to take audio-guide, especially if you don't speak Spanish, because all descriptions are in Spanish. 5th and 4th floors related to genocide, 3rd to tolerance. On 2nd floor - temporary... More
