The layout of this museum is so well done. I love how you walk through and listen instead of having to read a ton. I have to admit, the current section was overwhelming. We were also able to hear a Holocaust survivor speak. The Anne...More

Holocaust, Checoslobakia, Nazi, Right wing. Prejudice discrimination biases. The stage placed to show the sequence, talk over and lighting looks like a live act. Actually it is a colorless statues.

It's not a museum so much as an onslaught of reminders that humanity can be horrendous. For education in the Holocaust one should be reading and watching documentaries, not using a one hour walk through as a substitute for education and critical thought. While certain...More

Great building, exhibits, very interesting and informative. It's worth a visit just to see the history there.

An excellent example of this museum genre'. It provides a moving experience regarding man's inhumanity(or is it normal human behaviour?)to man. If it wasn't so common maybe we wouldn't need these museums.

Everyone needs to visit museums like this. If you already know the history, have had sensitivity training, etc., it's still powerful--an important refresher. Quite a few of the exhibits need just a little more framing or more clarity in the directions or information. It's not...More

When my friend and I went into the Museum of Tolerance, we discovered that a survivor from the Concentration Camps would be sharing her personal story with us. We decided to hear her story first and our plan was to then visit the rest of...More

It is an amazing place but a tour guide moves on too fast or goes off track. It's very nice and sad. It is a wonderful experience to be able to actually see what the Holocaust and Anne Frank were like.

Evocative and powerful, the Museum of Tolerance is dedicated to understanding the Holocaust and confronting/overcoming prejudice and discrimination. We found the Anne Frank exhibit to be particularly moving especially since we have twice visited the Anne Frank House on visits to Amsterdam. Admission : $15.50...More

Yes. two of kind. you chose.
1. If I were to see the majority of the museum, including the Anne Frank exhibit, approximately how long would it take? 2. Are all tours guided, or is one able to go through on own's own?

We went through on our own and it was fine. We got through the Museum of Tolerance at our leisure including the short films they were showing in about 2 hours. I would expect the same for the Anne Frank side although I did... More
I was thinking of going to this museum when I am in the LA area later this year. Will the museum be including any exhibits or responses to the increase in intolerance for people of color, women, people with disabilities the US has experienced recently? how will the museum maintain its independent views given it's close ties to the Trump administration?

I suggest you ask the museum directly. Given whom Trump is appointing, I think the main message that applies today from this museum (& others that discuss genocide & the Holocaust) is that we canNOT be silent. We must... More
