“Going from Top to Bottom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The museum's tour starts from the top floor and goes down to the first rooms you see when you enter. The exhibition is long but full of meaning if you can focus your mind for 2-3 hours. It starts with the Jewish Holocaust and finishes with art works that help to bring out important questions and reflections about human nature.

“Awesome museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Very good museum, especially their exhibits on recent events in Mexico, Rwanda, Guatemala, etc. A little more expensive than others, but worth it. My tour guide was awesome. Overall, a great and very interesting museum.

“Great museum dedicated to an important topic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This museum is very close to Palacio de Bellas Artes and just across the street from Almeda Park.

There are some signs in English but if you do not speak Spanish, it is probably better to get an audioguide. I think it was about 80 pesos.

About half of the museum is about the Nazis with the other half dedicated to various genocides around the world.

The museum is not too big so it shouldn't take more than 2 hours.

“Amazing knowledge and opportunity to reflect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

For a very low amount (moreless $6.5 usd) you can visit the museum in just 1 hour and a half with a guide! The way they are prepared/informed its incredible and they make you think about your behavior and attitude towards your similars. Definitely this is a worldclass museum!
