Museo Memoria y Tolerancia, Mexico City

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
