The educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Museum of Tolerance (MOT) offers a variety of historical and contemporary exhibits concerning the presence of discrimination in our culture. Through a rotating series of interactive experiences, including the Holocaust Section and Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves, which shares personal stories from well-known cultural figures, the museum hopes to empower its visitors into action instead of lulling them into bouts of sleepiness packed with insensitivity. Each membership includes one year of free admission to the MOT, advance notice of exhibitions and special events, 10% off at the MOT's stores, a free DVD of the documentary I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal, and a poster of former Dodgers closer Eric Gagne autographed by Maya Angelou.
- We went to the museum while on vacation, and feel that it was probably one of the best things we did and saw while in LA. So informative, and heart wrenching at times. – Yahoo! Traveler who posted on 7/26/2010
- The Museum of Tolerance (MOT) is a "one of a kind" experience that provokes thought and encourages you to dig deep within and reevaluate your contribution in this world. As Edmund Burke once said "all that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing." – Robert H., Yelp
Museum of Tolerance
In the late 1980s, the Simon Wiesenthal Center gathered top museum leaders and representatives to discuss new ways of teaching tolerance to a younger generation. Since 1993, the Museum of Tolerance has encouraged visitors to contemplate the effects of intolerance with interactive exhibits on the Holocaust as well as present-day discrimination. The guided, 70-minute sound-and-light presentation at the Holocaust exhibit recreates Nazi-occupied Europe, and the Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves exhibit showcases diversity through the personal histories of several American celebrities, including Billy Crystal and Carlos Santana. Some of the museum's features also examine more recent issues, such as the Tolerancenter, which highlights the struggles of the civil-rights movement and enlightens museum goers on contemporary human-rights violations. The museum also hosts special exhibitions, live testimonies from Holocaust survivors, and youth programs, such as anti-bullying workshops.
