“great for teens!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Great museum, very engaging for teens! We brought a group of American and Israeli teens here the past two years, and I think they enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. The museum guides are great at asking big questions and starting conversations.

Guide was spectacular and made it very interactive and clear. Was a moving presentation and really learned a lot. Great for school age children.

“Trip for youth empowerment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

I believe this experience was very eye-opening to the social injustice that occurs in our everyday life of society. As the Trantional Support Specialist for Domus Kids Inc. I had decided to invite students to broaden their perspective and knowledge on behaviors of racism, sexism, and intolerance. The tour did exactly that, some of the students characteristics did a complete 360 in regards on how to speak to one another and evaluate how they look at themselves. The tour guide was very informative and well educated on the different subjects of our tour. I enjoyed much of the trip myself as well and was glad that some students were able to take some very insightful lessons from their experience.

“Meaningful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

It's a low-key museum that teaches respect and understanding amongst all peoples. The tour guides are helpful and some exhibits are interactive, but the exhibits lack a punch. Live demonstrations, skits, and longer and more thought-provoking films and/or up-to-the-minute worldly displays of cultural tolerance would enhance the museum.

Excellent presentation and displays which increase awareness and solutions of human rights issues from local to international levels. Good historical information on ethnic and racial discrimination and genocides. My jr. high school students learn alot from this experience.
