Museum of Tolerance, Los Angeles

4.2
The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an internationally renowned Jewish human rights organization. The only museum of its kind in the world, the MOT is dedicated to challenging visitors to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in our world today.

Established in 1993, the MOT has welcomed over five million visitors, mostly middle and high school students. Visitors become witnesses to history and explore the dynamics of bigotry and discrimination that are still embedded in society today. Through interactive exhibits, special events, and customized programs for youths and adults, the Museum engages visitors’ hearts and minds, while challenging them to assume personal responsibility for positive change.

Perhaps no other institution offers such a motivational mix of historical discovery and personal empowerment.

  • Truly remarkable museum. I was told we could easily see/do everything in 2 hours. I disagree. I would have preferred much longer. Don't miss the Diary of Anne Frank exhibit. It's worth the extra charge. The entire museum is a combination of audio/visual displays
  • My english class went for a field trip and this was a great learning experience i really enjoyed having the chance to go here it had a lot of information about people in the holocaust. Our tour guide was Lina and she was just a great person who knew her stuff. I would recommend going here if you are interested in the holocaust or want to know more about it or just to go and see the exhibits. Its very interactive and can tell the stories of people in the holocaust.
