This museum focuses on many issues of social injustice throughout history without blame, shame, or hatred. There are various activities inside such as games, videos, a show, and galleries. Moreover, there are diversity inclusion workshops. It's worth a visit with friends and coworkers.

Great museum, very engaging for teens! We brought a group of American and Israeli teens here the past two years, and I think they enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. The museum guides are great at asking big questions and starting conversations.

It's a low-key museum that teaches respect and understanding amongst all peoples. The tour guides are helpful and some exhibits are interactive, but the exhibits lack a punch. Live demonstrations, skits, and longer and more thought-provoking films and/or up-to-the-minute worldly displays of cultural tolerance would...More

Excellent presentation and displays which increase awareness and solutions of human rights issues from local to international levels. Good historical information on ethnic and racial discrimination and genocides. My jr. high school students learn alot from this experience.

The introduction leads asks you "Are you prejudiced?" and leads you to believe that you will be exploring your own values. The content is a presentation of unjust acts committed towards minorities. They fail to make the connection between unkind acts of humanity, and individual...More
