The Museum of Tolerance focuses on issues of tolerance, rights and diversity and aims to promote dialogue in a hands-on, interactive manner. MATT assisted the museum with an interior renovation project to help the center reposition itself as a major cultural institution for the city’s Westside. The interiors project included over 34,000 sf of improvements to exhibit spaces, a 300-seat theater, a 24-seat viewing room, exhibit and café areas, a children’s multi-functional learning center, multi-purpose rooms and a replica of Simon Wiesenthal’s office.
