I went to tour this place yesterday. It is a magnificent and unusual type of building. There are 8 galleries plus a special gallery that currently houses a Nelson Mandela display. The guides and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Pictures and varieties of displays all over. Lots of videos and presentations. It gave me a real good sense of so much discrimination happening in the world, and that huge improvements for rights and freedoms are underway. The last few galleries show more of the progress and a brighter future possible.

The museum could be better in its displays and more interactivity. I was very disappointed with what I saw. Better Human rights museum in Ottawa. The building itself looks like a Nazi-helmet.

First off there is the Nelson Mandela Exhibit. Absolutely amazing. Shows you how cruel and terrible oppression can be just because you have a different ethnicity. Then the other floors have descriptions of other states that oppressed their people. It is very interesting and soul searching. Each exhibit is clearly described and explained. Well worth the three hours it takes to see everything. Lots of reading but very worth it. Then the view from the 8th floor is quite spectacular.

Very very interesting museum! Very focused on the holocaust but it gives great insight in to other historical events as well. Don’t expect to be able to read it all in one shot! I’ve gone back several times and seen different parts every time. It’s fairly interactive but a decent amount of reading.
