Museo Memoria y Tolerancia, Mexico City
(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • Very well put together, very moving. Spent half a day and was really impressed with all of theexibits. 
  • You should go, it is not possible to describe what you perceive in the place, it hurts the soul see to where the human being is able to get. Said Herman Hesse that "man is a wolf to man" and when you see these things you conclude that you are right, being in the car where the prisoners were transported to concentration camps is a breathtaking experience, you can't help but cry of sadness... And it is not only the Holocaust, other genocides both on the continent and in our america are also terrible. Definitely there is that knowing the history to not return to repeat it. Must visit it

  • 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.
