This museum has by far been my favorite in Mexico City. It is an awakening call for peace and justice and the information is both beautifully presented and interesting. A must for anyone visiting the city.

Amazing European quality museum. Come prepared, and not hungry, because it is very VERY time consuming but absolutely worth every minute.The exhibitions were very well equipped and in good state. Very clean and modern. Great café.

This was a museum about a very difficult subject matter namely different forms of genocide in the 20th century starting with the Nazis. The museum dealt with the issues in a sensitive manner and I really gained a lot of insight. There are graphic photos and videos inside and I would say it is not suitable for children.

I went to this museum on a whim while riding the Touribus, as it stops right outside. The people there are very friendly and gave me a headset with no charge. While the museum does have some interesting parts, I didn't find it to be anything special, especially having been to the human rights museum in Atlanta. There are so... More

In this museum the focus was on the different genocides that there were and are. From the Holocaust to Rwanda to Cambodia to Guatemala to Yugoslavia to Armenia to Darfur (currently going on) We did a tour with a tour guide and it was about 2 hours long. For me the most heartbreaking part of the tour, was the actual... More

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

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.
