Strengthen your understanding of the late Maya Angelou as you step foot inside a recreation of her childhood bedroom. Discover a unique rendering of Anne Frank’s story as you watch a 260-degree filmic dramatization of life in the secret annex. School may be out, but kids can still ignite their passion for learning at the Museum of Tolerance this summer.
Between beach trips and soccer camps, make a plan to spend the afternoon with us; we have two very special exhibitions that young families are sure to enjoy this summer.
“Anne” is an extraordinary new immersive exhibit on the life and legacy of Anne Frank. Anne’s story, told in her own words, comes to life through rare artifacts, unique documents, and photographs.
Visitors view a facsimile of her famous diary and several other examples of her original writing that culminated in what has become one of the most famous and well-read books of all time.
The Anne exhibit highlights little known facts about her time in hiding and the events that led to her arrest. Hear first-hand accounts about Anne from the people who knew her, and experience the story of Anne Frank as never before.
Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves:
Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves showcases the diversity within the personal histories of several noted Americans: poet, best-selling author, historian and educator Dr. Maya Angelou; award-winning actor, comedian and director Billy Crystal; multiple Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Carlos Santana; and National League MVP and former Manager of the four-time World Series Champions, the New York Yankees, Joe Torre.
Their individual, distinctive, and illuminating journeys examine the stories, lives and dreams of those family members that inspired them.
Finding Our Families, Finding Ourselves also includes the participation of other outstanding American sports and literary figures including NBA athlete and Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; award-winning author, poet, and screenwriter Sherman Alexie; figure skating champion Michelle Kwan; noted journalist, talk show host and author Cristina Saralegui; and NFL Player of the Year and Super Bowl champion quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Steve Young. The exhibition ultimately celebrates the shared experiences common to being part of an American family and encourages visitors to seek out their own histories, mentors and heroes.
