  • My visit to the Museum of Tolerance is an emotional experience, which encourages a dialogue about understanding, respect, and acceptance of cultural and racial diversity. The centerpiece of the museum is a step by step journey of European Jews' holocaust experience during World War II. There is also a large gallery on the history of social prejudices and its on-going transformation to tolerance with the use of interactive touchscreens. Plus, an exhibit on Anne Frank that completes the overall guest experience. To say a visit here is an eye opener for one's conscience, not to mention a humbling one that is truly an awe inspiring place to visit.
  • The most amazing experience. It's heartbreaking to see what took place, but eerie to see the patterns of todays society falling into the holocausts series of events that led to the genocide of 6 million human beings. I highly recommend.
