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

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 themes were excellent, the concept is mixed up and somewhat unclear, though one can guess... More

I love museums like this! With an ever changing set of exhibits its good to go back. This is not your typical natural history or art museum. What it leaves you with a powerful and moving view on society, culture, and a new look on the world. I would highly recommend this to any adult or teenager.

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.

Everyone needs to visit museums like this. If you already know the history, have had sensitivity training, etc., it's still powerful--an important refresher. Quite a few of the exhibits need just a little more framing or more clarity in the directions or information. It's not 100% clear how to experience the exhibit. For example, one more sentence would have helped... More

When my friend and I went into the Museum of Tolerance, we discovered that a survivor from the Concentration Camps would be sharing her personal story with us. We decided to hear her story first and our plan was to then visit the rest of the museum. That plan ended once we heard the speaker talk. She was 7 years... More

It is an amazing place but a tour guide moves on too fast or goes off track. It's very nice and sad. It is a wonderful experience to be able to actually see what the Holocaust and Anne Frank were like.

Evocative and powerful, the Museum of Tolerance is dedicated to understanding the Holocaust and confronting/overcoming prejudice and discrimination. We found the Anne Frank exhibit to be particularly moving especially since we have twice visited the Anne Frank House on visits to Amsterdam. Admission : $15.50 (adult) – student and senior discounts available

This is more of an experience than a museum. I was completely moved while taken through the journey of many different aspects of history that involved hate, oppression, genocide, and ignorance that fueled heinous acts of violence. A must see for all, anyone who values life. Politically neutral, the museum focuses on speaking out against hate and allowing holocaust survivors... More

This museum is amazing. It's so interactive and informative. I know a lot about the period and still learned new things. The best part about the whole experience is hearing survivors from the concentration camps speak. It's extremely powerful. A must see.
