At the Holocaust & Intolerance Museum of New Mexico, our mission is to eliminate hate and intolerance, one mind at a time. We accomplish this through exhibits and education programs that teach about genocide, prejudice, human rights, and social justice issues. These lessons are the foundation that build understanding and compassion in a troubled world.
We are unique. Our purpose is to educate visitors as well as teach about other genocides and forms of bullying that have affected people around the world. We are not limited to one religion, culture, geographic area, or time.
Education is our focus. A critical component of our mission is educating children about bullying, prejudice, and hate. Our outreach programs encourage empathy for others —to become “upstanders,” rather than bystanders–and befriend those in their communities who need their support.
Our exhibits educate. The museum welcomes thousands of visitors annually. We include exhibits on the Holocaust, the African American Experience, and others through ongoing development of new and pertinent exhibits.
