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.

An important and extensive museum on the horrors of 20th century genocides. I've been to many Holocaust museums and I still learned a lot.

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
