Create an itinerary including Memory and Tolerance Museum
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.

  • There is no doubt that the museum is well funded and modern. However, I was sad to realize how biased and politically influenced it was. Specifically, they did not provide any information about the Stalin's genocide (Holodomor, 1932-1933). When I asked why they overlooked 4 million Ukrainian deaths, the staff (who was clearly familiar with the topic) told me that the administration is very sensitive about what they classify as genocide. This puzzled me at first. But over the course of my travels in Mexico, I realized how the country's politics are aligned with communism and Russia both historically and today.
  • Traveling through the museum is a profound experience. Every human being must go. You will be changed forever and for the better. You will learn about the Jewish holocaust as well as many other genocides throughout history and around the world.
