Visit the culturally important Memory and Tolerance Museum, 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. Make Memory and Tolerance Museum part of your personalized Mexico City itinerary using our Mexico City trip itinerary planning website.
Memory and Tolerance Museum reviews
CDMX went covid “green” the week we went so I think they were only open fri-sun 10-5(def S&S). This wasn’t the Best holocaust museum (but I’ve been to Many), but still gets 5 bc it was only 4usd... more »
This garden of torture or however you want to interrupt this killing field is the entrance to the Tolerance Museum. more »
I cannot recommend this museum enough! I've recently been to a similar exhibition in Santiago and Lima and this is probably the best. It's got so much content and everything is laid out in a very easy flow to the visitor. Admission fee starts at 90 pesos (around 18 dollars - mar/19) for an unguided tour.
Good museum but it wouldn't be a bad idea to add descriptions on English. As well - this supposed to be a museum of tolerance but it seems like the main focus of the museum was WW2 and Nazy Germany (80%). It needs to be balanced out a bit to include religions, sexual orientation and other issues that world is facing.
