Grab your TAP card and head to the Museum of Tolerance for a history lesson!
Established in 1993, the Museum of Tolerance was built in honor of the late Simon Wiesenthal, a Nazi death camp survivor. Now it has become a staple in recognizing the history of discrimination, prejudice and current human rights issues, receiving 250,000 visitors annually.
The latest exhibition, Anne, tells the story of Anne Frank and events that occurred in Nazi dominated Europe during World War II. Visitors are led through Anne’s life of hiding with a replica of her room, an interactive lab and original writings from her famous diary. It’s open Sunday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m
