This museum was not at all what I expected, but amazing. Tours are given in groups and you walk through a narrative timeline with videos and recordings. Very well done. There are also daily speakers.

The museum of tolerance has found a special way to tell the story of the horror of the Holocaust. One leaves with an understanding of the how and the why. The experience is heart wrenching and powerful. You see humanity at it's worst, and yet...More

The layout of this museum is so well done. I love how you walk through and listen instead of having to read a ton. I have to admit, the current section was overwhelming. We were also able to hear a Holocaust survivor speak. The Anne...More

Holocaust, Checoslobakia, Nazi, Right wing. Prejudice discrimination biases. The stage placed to show the sequence, talk over and lighting looks like a live act. Actually it is a colorless statues.

It's not a museum so much as an onslaught of reminders that humanity can be horrendous. For education in the Holocaust one should be reading and watching documentaries, not using a one hour walk through as a substitute for education and critical thought. While certain...More

Great building, exhibits, very interesting and informative. It's worth a visit just to see the history there.

An excellent example of this museum genre'. It provides a moving experience regarding man's inhumanity(or is it normal human behaviour?)to man. If it wasn't so common maybe we wouldn't need these museums.

I suggest you ask the museum directly. Given whom Trump is appointing, I think the main message that applies today from this museum (& others that discuss genocide & the Holocaust) is that we canNOT be silent. We must... More
