Is my second time in the museum, both times I've gone with friends and both times I need more time . I recommend you go early and well eaten because you will spend a lot of time there if you love the theme . There's guided tours and audio guides . Some temporary expositions too. Really recommended museum.

History is there to not be forgotten, to remember so it won't happen again. Having said that, it's a large museum so bring your tennis shoes, many rooms to see, interactive, perfect for kids and teens, over all a great visit in a well established place, there is a cafeteria so you can have a snack. Museum audio guides excellent,... More

The museum has several expositions, eg those dedicated to holocaust and genocide and temporal exhibitions. The presentation of the topics is really impresive. I like the overall atmosphere of the museum, but also the content is very strong and is shown in understandable way. The visit was really intense experience for me. I would recomend this especially to all people... More

This was such a humbling experience. It shows all the tolerance stories of the world. Right from aparthyde in Africa, Hitler's mass killing of Jews, and various sufferings on the planet. It just humbled me. And I feel so fortunate and so thankful for what I have. This visit has made a lasting impact on me.

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
