I arrived early on a Wednesday and was excited to see that two holocaust survivors would be speaking that afternoon. Unfortunately there were a lot of school groups and tickets were sold out until the late afternoon. I didn't think to buy tickets ahead of...More

I visited this museum as a class trip. I don't know how the museum operates normally, but there were docents that guided us around the exhibits and were very informative. Even the Anne Frank exhibit was visited, which is a story about her life through...More

the exhibits are well done and this is a tribute to the poor victims of the Holocaust. The place was very clean and well done. I found many of the exhibits very informative. This is a nice place to visit and remember.

The Museum of Tolerance is, for the most part, dedicated to the victims of Hitler's reign. It is a great place for most ages. I would not take a child under 9, because it is very upsetting. It reminds of all of what can happen...More

I live in LA and have always wanted to go but I was concerned that it would be too depressing. It was so eye opening and a regret not going sooner. Everyone knows the basics and some know more but this experience cannot be missed....More

I went here for a school field trip and it was breathtaking. I don't even think we got through the whole museum, but the parts we did see were amazing. The holocaust section was striking. There were some modernized touches, like lit up vignette areas...More
