About Us

Museum of Tolerance New York, in the heart of Manhattan, is a professional development multi-media training facility targeting educators, law enforcement officials, and state/local government practitioners. Modeled after the successful Tools for Tolerance Program at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, the Tolerance Center provides participants with an intense educational and experiential daylong training program. Through interactive workshops, exhibits, and videos, individuals explore issues of prejudice, diversity, tolerance, and cooperation in the workplace and in the community.

The Museum of Tolerance New York, an educational wing of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is a global, Jewish human rights organization dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust and fostering tolerance and understanding through community involvement, educational outreach and social action.
