Museo Memoria y Tolerancia, Mexico City

4.7
Visit the culturally important Museo Memoria y Tolerancia, a potentially harrowing museum that traces the genocides of the 20th century and aims to highlight the need for tolerance and respect for diversity. Over several floors you’ll experience in-depth looks at the Holocaust of World War II, as well as the Guatemalan, Rwandan, and Czechoslovakian conflicts. Despite the morbid content matter, the exhibits are artistic and often hopeful, and the overall message conveys a sense of peace and understanding. Consider taking a guided tour, or take an audio tour if you don't speak Spanish.

  • A great place to invest the time to analyze how we have advanced or not as society. You start on the 5th floor and not feel like you're going down floor. Tolerance applies to all persons working in the place.

  • One of the most amazing museums I've ever visited. The information is so detailed, the ambient and decoration are the best to make you feel the vibe the museum is supposed to communicate. The original Polish train car is one of the most awesome and disturbing things I've ever seen. It's a must to really make conscience. Probably not very attractive for kids under 13. Besides the location couldn't be better. I totally loved it!!
  • Excellent museum! Very powerful with great use of technology. Can be very emotional and sad but the last section offers ways for you to make a positive difference. Take your time, read the displays, and watch the video clips.
  • Visited the LGBT exhibit only. Very informative and interesting. Will have to come back for the whole museum as I didn't have time.
  • Beautiful museum with insightful details. A tour here will make you appreciate your life and the life of others and give you a meaningful experience.
  • Fantastic! This is a not-to-be-missed museum. We thought that while we were in Mexico City it would make more sense to go to museums that feature the local culture and history. But I am so glad that we discovered the Memory and Tolerance Museum. It is incredible - especially the exhibit on genocides around the world. They have headphones that describe most things in English too, which is a nice bonus for those of us who are language-challenged. The price of the museum is more than reasonable, and the gift shop has some nice bargains, as well. It's a very short walk from the Palace de Belles Artes, and you know you'll be going there! ☺
