Specialty Museum
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. Our Mexico City trip itinerary maker makes visiting Museo Memoria y Tolerancia and other Mexico City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very nice museum. I recommend paying the extra 20 pesos for the audio tour being that everything is in Spanish. They ask for photo id for the audio headset. If you're with a friend who might leave I recommend using your own id for each headset. Total entrance was 95 pesos which at time of our visit was a little over $5 USD. A bit of a downer and unless you're really into museums you could go with missing this one. The holocaust section didn't offer anything different that you might have seen in another museum. The women's section is very moving.
  • Incredible museum, but be prepared - it's emotionally moving and might be difficult to get through at times.
  • If any museum in existence has a purpose, it's to educate anyone that walks it's halls. This one in particular emphasizes the importance of learning from past mistakes, how we let atrocities be carried even when they could have been prevented. There is also an exhibit highlighting the abuse against woman, allowing our youth to continue to grow with a poor education in regards to equality.
  • Amazing!!! But probably the best is the pasion that tourist guide employs to explain the intolerance events
  • Excellent museum. I learned a lot about the history of genocide and why tolerance is so important in today's world. I wouldn't recommend this museum for children.
