Memory and Tolerance Museum (Museo Memoria y Tolerancia)

Plaza Juarez S/N, Centro, Cuauhtémoc, Ciudad de México, Distrito Federal, 06000

The Basics

The Memory and Tolerance Museum has workshops and exhibits for the whole family. Memory galleries tell the story of extreme violence, such as the Holocaust, Balkan Conflict, and the Rwandan genocide, as well as devastation in Cambodia, Guatemala, and Darfur. The Tolerance wing explores the influence of language and the media on discrimination and prejudice, and children’s exhibits focus on celebrating diversity and ending bullying. The museum’s temporary exhibits are always changing, so there’s always something new to see.

It’s easy to visit the museum independently—Mexico City hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tours stop here.
