  • 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.
