“Emotional learning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

It is heart breaking, especially knowing Guatemalan history so closely. Cases from holocaust, rwanda, and others. RECOMENDABLE for teaching young and old about humanity.

This is a place that make you think. It is near the Alameda Central and the monument to Benito Juarez

“A really good museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This museum is quite new and they have really done a wonderful job setting it up. The place itself is worthwile with it's Hendrix art and the whole layout and museography. Maybe not the first choice if you are visiting Mexico and are looking for local culture and art -there's way too much to see in the city- but certainly a good choice if you have the time. For locals it's really a must.
I'd not recommend to take young children though. The guides do a good job.

“A must see, not only about the holocaust”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

What I loved of this place is the way they not only foucused in the Holocaust.
I have to agree the holocaust material is out standing an much better that in a lot of other holocaust museums around the world.
People that visit must take or book in advance the guided tour, is 100% worth it

Located just steps from Bellas Artes, nice and interesting museum about different genocides, including hollocoust. Excellent museography, and BEAUTIFUL Jan Hendrix art work.
