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.

I visited this museum with no idea about what to expect. It was a shocking experience; no, don't worry. It was shocking because of any scary things, but for the terrible things it portrays, things people have done to other people because of intolerance, hatred, fear... The museum includes subjects about the Holocaust and other terrible stories, such as the... More

I did not know about this museum until I saw it located on a map of Mexico City, and being interested in how institutions describe human rights, I headed over on a sunny, Saturday afternoon. What I wasn’t expecting was a long line of people of all ages, including numerous groups of teenagers, waiting to purchase tickets. I’ve been to... More

It is a great museum! It gives a detailed explanation of various genocides in English and Spanish. It is one of the best museums in Mexico City!

The museum is incredible. Its content goes from the holocaust to the Guatemalan genocide, and there is a whole section about how to practice tolerance. It is very accesible to people in wheelchairs, since they have an elevator in every floor, right by the exhibits. The temporary exhibitions are also worth your while!

I highly recommend it. It has a lot of facts and information. It is extremely sad, be prepared to shed tears. Even though the holocaust is over in actuality, it is never really over. Because I am from a country that was taken over by guerrilla, I have my own i reflections, so In reference to the rest is the... More

A moving overview of man's inhumanity to man. Nazi's, Rwanda, Armenians, Bosnia Herzogovina, Guatemala and Mexico were all included and the final area South Sudan was still actively evolving in Genocide anlong with the Syrian/Iraqui ethnic cleansing. Heartrenching and ever so tragic but do go .. LEST WE FORGET

Unless you pay extra for audio nothing is in English but you don't really need it because pictures explain everything. It covered about holocaust 70%. Even I've been to Dacau this museum was still informative and moving. It is right in front of alameda central park.

Besides the magnificent job they do with their exhibitions I want to say that the building is beautiful and the staff is very attentive and knowledgeable about what they do and the surrounding areas. Also the restaurant is very nice plus it's vegetarian.

Interesting but probably not quite what we expected although, having said that, I'm not sure what we expected. Entry not very straightforward procedurally which was odd. Even more oddly, once we were into the museum it was very well organised. Most of the museum dealt with the holocaust, maybe too much but we may only be thinking that as we... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
