“Awesome museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Very good museum, especially their exhibits on recent events in Mexico, Rwanda, Guatemala, etc. A little more expensive than others, but worth it. My tour guide was awesome. Overall, a great and very interesting museum.

“Great museum dedicated to an important topic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

This museum is very close to Palacio de Bellas Artes and just across the street from Almeda Park.

There are some signs in English but if you do not speak Spanish, it is probably better to get an audioguide. I think it was about 80 pesos.

About half of the museum is about the Nazis with the other half dedicated to various genocides around the world.

The museum is not too big so it shouldn't take more than 2 hours.

“Amazing knowledge and opportunity to reflect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

For a very low amount (moreless $6.5 usd) you can visit the museum in just 1 hour and a half with a guide! The way they are prepared/informed its incredible and they make you think about your behavior and attitude towards your similars. Definitely this is a worldclass museum!

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

I would never have expected to find a holocaust museum in Mexico - of all places!

I was pleasantly surprised - the set up of the museum is extraordinary. Cudos to the designers and curators.

The museum starts with the horrors of genocide in the 2nd world war. It shows the extent and deliberateness of how the Nazis tried to systematically erase the existence of the jewish people. That in itself was worth seeing - I was personally surprised to see the scale of what was done.

The journey then takes you through other genocides - what? Other genocides? And then you realize that it was happening in Serbia/Croatia and more recently in Africa and the Sudan.

Its an eye opener. Well worth seeing.

Only brickbat is that all the exhibits are in Spanish - and you have to rely on the audio (I got the English one) to get a better understanding of what is on display. Though this did not help with the printed Spanish notes on the exhibits.
