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.

  • Visit this museum gives us the opportunity to assess what we have, to reconsider the path of mankind, what we have done wrong and the opportunity to resume the path of tolerance and empathy and consideration for each other. Definitely highly recommended to visit alone, in family, with teens and friends. It is a gift for introspection and reflection! They cannot know him.

  • Great museum. Very informative and touching. In-depth coverage of the Holocaust, and brief coverage of many other genocides. Wonderful MLK exhibition!
  • Incredible museum well kept and the exhibit of Dr. MLK jr. Simply amazing
  • 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.
