Despite the morbid content matter, the exhibits are artistic and often hopeful, and the overall message conveys a sense of peace and understanding.

  • I took 5 hours to navigate it all and yet there were parts that I could not see. It is an experience that immerses you in the story and that can bring you to tears or get goose bumps. It is divided into 2 main parts, genocide and tolerance. In this last part regain faith in humanity invites you to do something about it. Few museums make you think this way.

  • A Museum although it shows behavior human destruction and suffering, think that it is partial, since it gives much greater emphasis to the Jewish Holocaust that others who have been also very serious. I would be remiss to know what happened in Mexico at different times in our history... even the contemporary.

  • I would say one of the best museums in Mexico City, even though Mexico or latin america doesn't have a lot of history of holocausts this museum approach this theme in an awesome way. It will make you feel goosebumps. Totally recomendable.
  • A very emotional and moving tour. One of my favorite museums in mexico city.
  • Wonderful museum with extremely well thought out exhibitions. Some sections have translations in other languages. One of the most comprehensive museums on the Holocaust, but also includes many other unfortunate events in history. Very thought provoking place. Beautiful restaurant area if you want to take a break.
