Is this like the Tunnel of Oppression?

Yes & no. They are both experiential museums, but instead of focusing on the issues oppressed identities may have, House of Privilege shows the systems of privilege put in place that cause certain peoples to be oppressed. House does not aim to call out one identity group over another, but focuses on issues at a systemic level and how ANYONE can recognize and work towards dismantling those systems.
