What an amazing museum to learn and remember the horrors of the Holocaust and other Genocides. This museum is just as great as the National museum in Washington D.C. Also they currently have a Martin Luther king Jr exhibit that just brings into perspective the current issues facing the USA.

The museum exceeded my expectations. The displays were well layer out and offered a combination of pictures, videos, and exhibits which kept the experience interesting and flowing. I used the audio guide which was easy to operate and follows.

The exhibit portraits the dark side of human behaviour, but it does pay the visit to increase awareness of the crimes humans have committed, so we don't make same mistakes in the future.

This museum shows you a crude reality, but it's the reality so you can see the humanity in its maximum expression, you can learn a lot and see almost in flesh the cruelness of some man's of the history, it's a great museum to learn a lot about the tolerance we need to practice everyday in the world.

This is one of a lifetime experience for me and my wife. We were able to experience through the videos, photos and information the suffering of the Jews in Germany and other Genocide populations.

This museum has a great design and enjoyable exhibitions. Still, I must warn, it's a little on the heavy side as it has a ton of information and is mainly focused on mass murders. Highly recomendable anyway

This was an unexpected treasure. A bit serious, but a place you have to go to while you are there. Very easy to get to if you are staying in Central de Historical . Was only 65 pesos. Make sure you get the FREE English headset the audio . If your Spanish is not at 90% you will miss a... More

We went to this museum as part of a school project. We were advised to stay in the Isla Panwapa, which features activities to teach young children about tolerance, difference, cultures, etc. The groups are around 10 kids -parents and it is a guided activity tour which last around 1.5 hours. There is a little video and some phisical activities.... More

I've been to this museum with my best friend and it is a thrilling experience. Most holocaust memorial museums are very alike but they each have something that makes them special. The first floor in which the tour ends, could be more festive. I adore this museum and have told everyone I know to go visit it, my father had... More

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.
