Museum of Tolerance

Fodor's Review

This museum unflinchingly confronts bigotry and racism. One of the most affecting sections covers the Holocaust, with film footage of deportations and concentration camps. As you enter you're issued a "passport" bearing the name of a child whose life was dramatically changed by the Nazis; as you go through the exhibit, you learn the fate of that child. An exhibit called "Anne: The Life and Legacy of Anne Frank," brings her story to life through immersive environments,

multimedia presentations, and interesting artifacts. Simon Wiesenthal's Vienna office, set exactly as the famous "Nazi hunter" had it while performing his research that brought more than 1,000 war criminals to justice.

Interactive exhibits include the Millennium Machine, which engages visitors in finding solutions to human rights abuses around the world; Globalhate.com, which examines hate on the Internet by exposing problematic sites via touch-screen computer terminals; and the Point of View Diner, a re-creation of a 1950s diner, red booths and all, that "serves" a menu of controversial topics on video jukeboxes.

Make reservations in advance (especially for Friday, Sunday, and holidays) and plan to spend at least three hours. Although every exhibit may not be appropriate for children, school tours regularly visit the museum.
