“Trip for youth empowerment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I believe this experience was very eye-opening to the social injustice that occurs in our everyday life of society. As the Trantional Support Specialist for Domus Kids Inc. I had decided to invite students to broaden their perspective and knowledge on behaviors of racism, sexism, and intolerance. The tour did exactly that, some of the students characteristics did a complete 360 in regards on how to speak to one another and evaluate how they look at themselves. The tour guide was very informative and well educated on the different subjects of our tour. I enjoyed much of the trip myself as well and was glad that some students were able to take some very insightful lessons from their experience.

“Meaningful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

It's a low-key museum that teaches respect and understanding amongst all peoples. The tour guides are helpful and some exhibits are interactive, but the exhibits lack a punch. Live demonstrations, skits, and longer and more thought-provoking films and/or up-to-the-minute worldly displays of cultural tolerance would enhance the museum.

Excellent presentation and displays which increase awareness and solutions of human rights issues from local to international levels. Good historical information on ethnic and racial discrimination and genocides. My jr. high school students learn alot from this experience.

“Inspiring Content”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

The introduction leads asks you "Are you prejudiced?" and leads you to believe that you will be exploring your own values. The content is a presentation of unjust acts committed towards minorities. They fail to make the connection between unkind acts of humanity, and individual acts of tolerance.

Still, the content was inspiring. The interactive presentations did not work properly. One of the 3 screens in the main viewing room was not working.

“A MUST DO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

A little visited gem for the open minded.
The videos themselves are worth more than at least an hour of your time.
Highly recommended!
