Museum of Tolerance Tour

mot_logo2
The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an internationally renowned human rights organization. The only museum of its kind in the world, the MOT challenges visitors to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts and confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination in the world today.
 
Through high-tech interactive exhibits, community events, and customized educational programs for youths and adults, the museum engages the hearts and minds of visitors while challenging them to assume responsibility for positive change.
 
Among the innovative experiences are live personal testimonies from speakers that include Holocaust survivors, former hate crime perpetrators and civil rights icons, offering visitors a chance to engage with those who bear witness to history and whose stories inform and inspire.
 
A special exhibit, “Anne,” will be viewable, although there is a separate admission price (see below).  Below is some information about “Anne.”
