I've traveled quite a bit around the world and could assure that this is one of the best museums I've ever been to. Very informative, audio guide provided, unique decoration and exhibition placements. After we left the museum all visitors looked sad and connected with the main purpose of the place- conmemoration of genocide. Highly recommend!

This museum is very well done. The content is not the most uplifting, but I would still recommend visiting if you have more than a few days in Mexico City. Very detailed look into the various horrible genocides throughout history (& today!). You could spend all day in this museum!

We were stunned by our experience. The historical photographs and artifacts, the background music, the extended commentary and a global perspective make this museum unique. We only had two hours and felt that we could have easily spent a day inside.

Martin Luther King's exposition was very good, well structured focused in the iconic moments and the person behind the figure

This Museum is really something. It is very difficult to go through many of the exhibits but it's well done and very important both historically and for what is happening all over the world today. Bring kleenex and make sure to do something inspiring immediately afterwards.

There are several of these museum over the world, and each one has its unique character. This is in a very touristic area, but that doesn't change the message it tries to convey. Well organized, big, you'll see people from all ages. Highly interactive as well.

I have been at this museum 3 times, once on my own, another with my daughters and nephews (from 3 to 13) the museum is 'divided' with the main exhibition for adults and the kids section (up to 16) I thinks kids as from 12/13 could see some of the main exhibition specialy if they have been studying 1st and...

Visited the museum - good experience. There's a nice mix of a WWII Holocaust museum with that of Tolerance. The guides are good, not sure if they speak English well. As in most of the museums in MX, with guided tours, it's a bit "stiff."

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.
