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.

    The Museum is based on the Jewish Holocaust. In fact it was founded by the Jewish community in Mexico. However briefly touching other Holocausts or extermination in different parts of the world. Very good Museum to remind us that hating someone regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, skin colour, nationality, religion, etc is stupidity mas grande del mundo.

    In my life, I have seen many museums of many issues in more than 30 countries and this is in my opinion the best thematic Museum I know.

    Tolerance is not positive. This museum is supposed to create consciousness about crimes done agents races or preferences but uses a non positive word for it. It should be name Acceptance Museum instead. (At least) Please add more interactive dynamics. Let people face their own unconscious biases and beliefs and then act accordingly.

    Very nice museum. I recommend paying the extra 20 pesos for the audio tour being that everything is in Spanish. They ask for photo id for the audio headset. If you're with a friend who might leave I recommend using your own id for each headset. Total entrance was 95 pesos which at time of our visit was a little over $5 USD. A bit of a downer and unless you're really into museums you could go with missing this one. The holocaust section didn't offer anything different that you might have seen in another museum. The women's section is very moving.

    Incredible museum, but be prepared - it's emotionally moving and might be difficult to get through at times.

    If any museum in existence has a purpose, it's to educate anyone that walks it's halls. This one in particular emphasizes the importance of learning from past mistakes, how we let atrocities be carried even when they could have been prevented. There is also an exhibit highlighting the abuse against woman, allowing our youth to continue to grow with a poor education in regards to equality.

    Amazing!!! But probably the best is the pasion that tourist guide employs to explain the intolerance events

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.
