Holocaust and Tolerance Museum
The Holocaust and Tolerance Museum is a museum to be built in Chandler, Arizona. The project was begun around 2010 by the East Valley Jewish Community Center, following a successful Anne Frank exhibit in 2008. It will focus on history of the Holocaust with exhibits designed to expose past and present examples of prejudice, genocide and inhumanity around the globe while teaching racial and cultural tolerance.
Plans for the museum, expected to cost $20 Million dollars and include a 70,000-square-foot (6,500 m2) facility will be built in phases on 4.6 acres. It will also include a 350-seat auditorium, meeting space, classrooms and a contemplation courtyard. The Museum is being designed by Michael Rumpletin (RSP Architects, Phoenix Office) and Jeremy Mayberg (RSP Architects, Minneapolis Office) RSP Architects recently[when?] completed the nearby Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix.
