in detail

The museum opened in 2010 to focus in the consequences of indifference, discrimination and violence. Through historical memory the rooms display a tour of the worst crimes committed by humanity against humanity because of religious, ethnic or other form of intolerance. The museum seeks to be a channel of expression for understanding cultural diversity and a step towards eradicating hatred and genocide.

The museum is divided into two sections: Memory and Tolerance. The first section showcases extreme cases of massacres, such as that of the Jews during the Second World War, and some not so well known such as that of the indigenous people in Guatemala.

The Tolerance section addresses issues such as dialogue, discrimination, human rights, the power of the media and the richness of diversity, among others. There are temporary exhibitions such as We will not be silent! The battles for freedom of expression, where the case of Mexico, which is one of the most dangerous countries for journalists, is addressed.

It has a library that addresses the issue of the museum, there is an information center, reading room and the internal loan of documentary material. The museum also holds workshops for kids to make them aware of problematic social issues that have happened in Mexico and the world. This will awake in them the feeling of empathy.
