There are several of these museum over the world, and each one has its unique character. This is in a very touristic area, but that doesn't change the message it tries to convey. Well organized, big, you'll see people from all ages. Highly interactive as well.

Visited the museum - good experience. There's a nice mix of a WWII Holocaust museum with that of Tolerance. The guides are good, not sure if they speak English well. As in most of the museums in MX, with guided tours, it's a bit "stiff."

Was impressed by the massive investment. Located across Bellas Artes, this museum has 4 floors with different exhibits, starting from the holocaust as well as other genocides including Cambodia, Guatemala, Darfour and the old Yugoslavia. I only wish they would have something about the Tlatelolco killings or the students killings in the state of Guerrero. But the museum will add... More

This amazing museum sits right next to the Foreign Affairs Ministry. As such, you can easily walk right past it. The holocaust is covered on the top two floors and these are on par with the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. What's unique about this museum is that it goes on to cover a number of other atrocities (Guatemala, Cambodia,... More

This is a museum that every person needs to see. It tells the story of genocide and intolerance around the world. It pulls no punches and I believe its very fair in its portrayals including the hx of many actions/inactions that we in the USA have taken in incidents around the world. Most particular it grabs from social media/TV/periodicals to... More

What an amazing museum to learn and remember the horrors of the Holocaust and other Genocides. This museum is just as great as the National museum in Washington D.C. Also they currently have a Martin Luther king Jr exhibit that just brings into perspective the current issues facing the USA.

The museum exceeded my expectations. The displays were well layer out and offered a combination of pictures, videos, and exhibits which kept the experience interesting and flowing. I used the audio guide which was easy to operate and follows.

The exhibit portraits the dark side of human behaviour, but it does pay the visit to increase awareness of the crimes humans have committed, so we don't make same mistakes in the future.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
