The Museum of Tolerance is a culturally and historically important museum, not just because of its content, but because it's the only museum of its kind in the world that challenges visitors to understand the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary context.
There are five main exhibit areas within the Museum of Tolerance, one of those being the impressive "Anne" exhibit (which has an additional admission fee).
The Holocaust Exhibit is sound and light guided, featuring a 70 minute dramatic presentation that explore the period from the 1920s and 1945. Here, all visitors are led back in time to become a witness to Nazi-dominated Europe during WWII.
You even receive a different photo passport card with a story of a child whose life was changed forever, and at the end of the tour the ultimate fate of the child is revealed.
You can visit a re-creation of a 1930s pre-war Berlin street cafe, as well as read and hear unforgettable stories of actual Holocaust victims and survivors.
Also in the exhibit is an actual letter signed by Adolf Hitler, calling for his plan to be moved forward, and actual artifacts from Auschwitz itself, including uniforms and personal items.
The "Anne" exhibit is an extraordinary immersive exhibit on the life and legacy of Anne Frank, with her story told in her own words coming to life through rare artifacts and unique documents.
A moving and eye-opening Los Angeles museum, suited for older children, where they can learn about one of the most world-altering events ever to occur on the planet.
