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.

  • It is a museum where you can find many details about the most important genocides on a global level, I liked the amount of well-achieved information it has, significant amounts of photographs, videos and testimonies that bristle the skin... it is not a subject that I can like for all that implies but the museum really is very good, recommendation fence with time is long the journey approx about 4 hours to see read and appreciate everything there.. super recommended congratulations

  • This museum is an apology of Zionism and at the moment you question them a little like religious persecution in Mexico or intolerance to the Palestinian people stutter and do not know what to do. There are interesting pieces like the berlin wall fragment, but it annoys you as much memory of the concentration camps as if it were owned by them and as if it were the only thing that is significant. I don't recommend it or go again.

  • I liked the facilities and the exhibitions, it takes quite a while to get around it but it's worth it.

  • I cannot recommend this museum enough! I've recently been to a similar exhibition in Santiago and Lima and this is probably the best. It's got so much content and everything is laid out in a very easy flow to the visitor. Admission fee starts at 90 pesos (around 18 dollars - mar/19) for an unguided tour.
  • Good museum but it wouldn't be a bad idea to add descriptions on English. As well - this supposed to be a museum of tolerance but it seems like the main focus of the museum was WW2 and Nazy Germany (80%). It needs to be balanced out a bit to include religions, sexual orientation and other issues that world is facing.
  • Great museum about genocide and human values. It broke my heart but is strikingly beautiful and well done. It has guided tours. Everyone should go at least once in their life.
  • Outstanding exhibitions with well planned distribution. I had walked past the Museum a few times on previous visits and I can't get over the fact that I had missed such a special place. Makes you stop in your tracks, pause and think.The way they get you started at the Holocaust room gives you chills and prepares the atmosphere for what will come. Current events are portrayed and give you pause. Don't miss it.
  • The layout of the museum is well thought. Most is dedicated to the jewish holocaust, which I found better than the one in DC. The excellent guided tour probably made a difference. After the tour I went back to take a few additional pictures. Highly recommended museum.
