Overview
More
The Memory and Tolerance Museum delinates -in a didactic manner- the historical memory of the multiple genocides and crimes against humanity. The visit warns the viewer of the danger of difference, discrimination and violence in order to engender responsability, respect and consciousness in each and every person. Contemporary subjects are also presented in order to lead us to reflect on the role we wish to play in our every day lives. Tolerance, diversity, dialogue and empathy force us to see the commitment we all have to humanity. The visitor is invited to be generators of change through social action.

This museum has exhibits related to some of the worst episodes in human history. The idea, which is brilliantly displayed, is to show the visitors what happens when there is intolerance between humans and the consequences. The idea of memory, is embedded in the fact...More

This museum on the Alameda in the heart of the city, is beautifully done and utterly direct and complete in its presentation of genocide in our times. The text is in Spanish but the abundant photos and videos are expertly put together. The flow of...More

The museum began in the last floor, and you have to go through all the genocides and cruelty that happened in the last century, the crystal that represent the tears, is perfectly understood when you finish the tour, really powerful museum. It's a must

However, I learned about various methods of torture during the Inquisition. Among the mechanisms on display were the guillotine, the dunking chair, the knee separator, and several more. One of the few museums in Mexico City that I have visited that had information in both...More

Powerful recounting of genocide, beginning and focusing on the Nazi experience. Step into a train car used to transport Jews to the death camps.

I cannot overstate how impressed I was with this museum. This is not only about giving information to the public. This museum tries -and often succeeds- in raising our awareness to the most pressing problem we humans have: our "human" nature. All this is presented...More

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
