    I never miss an opportunity to visit a Holocaust Memorial/Museum. I was surprised to learn that there’s an added venue here that stresses ‘Intolerance’. Isn’t that what led to the Holocaust? The main ...  more »

    There is so much to learn about human genocide here. Very moving and informative museum that may not be the best for young children. It is a solemn place that can move you, though fairly small. Staff ...  more »

    I would recommend the museum period. However, having gone to similar musuems in L.A. and Portland, OR I can't help but be aware of how modest the exhibits are. Given the Jewish community in Albuquerqu...  more »

    Very educational and informative. Staff willing to answer questions and ate friendly. Need to allow time to take in and process all the history but it's worth it. Little children may be slightly disturbed by some of the information

    Small museum showing world wide examples of various human genocide events. There are a number of "in memory of" personal stories with photographs for the Jewish Holocaust. The museum was started by survivors who ended up in Albuquerque. Their museum includes other 20th century events (Namibia, Armenia, Rwanda, Bosnia, etc.), as well as earlier genocides such as African slaves in the New World and the decimation of Native Americans by disease, slavery, and settler colonialism (another perspective on "manifest destiny"). The Native American story includes episodic cultural genocide as well as removal and/or extermination events. Unfortunately the latter exhibit was being renovated when I visited the museum. Interesting story on the continuing Turkish government denial of the WW1 Armenian genocide. This museum may take you out of your comfort zone with the thought provoking exhibits of violence when one human group tries to exterminate another; and it is caused by intolerance of other religions and/or ethnic groups. Several exhibits have a do-it-yourself appearance; however, the message about a world wide connection between intolerance and genocide is more important than possessing a museum quality look (and hopefully the appearance will be improved in the future).

    It is a small museum but very moving. It is very well organized and there are very informative and historical items. I was very glad with my visit. I totally recommend it.
