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.

  • I never thought I would see a Holocaust memorial museum in the middle of Mexico City, but they have done an amazing job. Worth checking out for a few hours to read about what happened and how we can m...  more »
  • The Museum is centrally located, steps from the metro of fine arts. It is divided mainly into the first part of memory, where what I liked most is the way of presenting the exhibition, very explanatory, including lot image, sound and video. It also offers a fairly comprehensive review of burnt offerings that are being committed, I highly recommend the visit. The second part of tolerance, invites you to think of how nosotr@s can be change entities. If you are in the city of Mexico you can't it lose!

  • Excellent museum! Very powerful with great use of technology. Can be very emotional and sad but the last section offers ways for you can make a positive difference. Take your time, read the displays, and watch the video clips.
  • It seemed like a wonderful exhibition. It seems sad that, to actually remember and build tolerance, you have to pay for a tour. I do not suggest going before 2pm as the groups of school tours are overwhelming. For a space to reflect and remember, it is important not to feel pushed (literally and figuratively) along. Sadly I had to leave it became so bad. It is fantastic to offer tours for young people. This is the spirit of the place. These tours should not take away from the experience for individuals.
  • Great museum. If you don’t speak Spanish get the audio guide as all exhibits and in Spanish. The second half unfortunately isn’t covered by the audio guide yet but would have been very interesting.
  • Overall it was a nicely done museum. Everything is in Spanish so it is a requirement to have the English headset. Sadly during our visit the headset missed a few exhibits.
  • Amazing museum that's very well done to be as surface or as deep as you wish. Definitely get an audio guide, available in English and Spanish. Two hours needed just for the memory section.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
